New Netherland colonies formed bonds with the Indians, as the Native Americans were the major peltry supplier to the Europeans and the Native Americans protected their hunting territories. In Jamestown, Virginia, the English colonies relied on Indians for food. The Indians exchanged foodstuff for guns and swords from the Europeans. Eventually a clash of trade and a desire for more land led to
The European colonizers were not happy with the Indians’ customs but could not avoid liking their sagacity in economic and political issues The Huron assumed a dominant position in these trading relationships and the Jesuits record that when the Algonquians had dealings with them, they did so in the Huron language since the latter did not bother to learn Algonkia-1As trade with the French increased, the Huron began to appreciate French goods and to want more of them. Metal awls and needles were superior to native bone ones, and iron arrowheads cot fid penetrate the traditional shields and body armor of their enemie.2. The Hurons expand their trading network in order to secure furs in large quantities. In the summer of 1649, a party of over thirty coureurs de bols
The French possessed a high interest in the furs that the Indians had made. They set up a complex trading system where the Indians would trade furs that they would trap for manufactured goods of the French. Though, of course, the trade was not any way close to being even. The furs that the French bought were being resold in France for double or triple what the French had paid. Some Indian merchants had realized that these trades were unfair so only sold good furs for what they believed was goo manufactured goods.
The relationship was positive at the beginning of the Native-European contact because of their reliance on each other for trade goods but in turn, negative consequences of Native-European contact arose during the fur trade which resulted in the relationships becoming weakened and problematic. It is evident that Indian tribes and way of life changed significantly because of contact with Europeans, both positively and negatively. Ramsay Cook described the beginning of the European settlement in North America, “The Amerindians initial contact with European economic organization came through the fur trade. At least in
Not only did they westernized their education with modern sciences and modern life, but they also made a frame for the to establish laws and courts of justice (Document3). The British built a strong and efficient administration ran the government for the Indians, deciding that they would not be able to run their government properly, became a problem later for India. Imperialism may have been a positive force for India in many ways, but the economic gain benefitted
The intentions of both the encomienda system and system of Russian serfdom were the same, however, they differed in the foundation and functionality. Russian serfdom and the Spanish Encomienda system had many similarities. They were both systems of forced labor in which work was demanded from lower status people. Spanish settlers in the New World, particularly in the Caribbean were in need for a labor source to cultivate land and mine silver. After the rule of the Mongol over Russia, many of the free peasants had fallen into debt and were forced to work as laborers on the large estates owned by nobles.
Their traveling also introduced them to several and various customs that they took and practiced. Kickapoo Indians lived in homes called wickiups. Most of them are made of mostly vines and wood that all connect together at a point as the ceiling. Kickapoo Indian men and women played roles as you would think of in any history class. Men did the hunting and most of the muscle work and women did a lot of the farming and the house work.
The expedition also informed the Indians about the new sovereignty of the US over the territory, which helped to force foreign fur trade competitors out of North America. They did figure out how to get from the headwater of the Missouri to the headwater of the Columbia (However, it turned out to be impractical). In the time that human’s civilization was still limited, the Corps Discovery of Expedition led by Meriwether Lewis and William Clark deserves a great deal of credit for accomplishing its goals successfully. The crew contributed a lot to opening the whole western region to trade, linking the Eastern and Western parts of the continent, starting an
In a time where religious choice was not an option, and laws were strict, the New World could not have been discovered at a better time for Europeans. After the few established colonies began to settle into their new and unfamiliar territories in America, tensions between the native people and the new colonists began to erupt. Quarrels, uprisings, and bloody battles spread across the colonies like fire. A little later on, the same battles were going on between African slaves and their rights for emancipation. Such tensions and violence encouraged colonists and people in general to question who they were and who they wanted to be in this new world.
They controlled what was known as the “middle” America. Their main forte was the trapping and fur trade, however very lucrative this was not a sustainable business and way to support an economy on its own. Another big reason the French failed at colonizing was the lack of motivation. There was no religious persecution or political unrest in France at the time of New World colonization. As opposed to England who wanted to use the area as a “dumping ground” for religious zealots, the French wanted to tap the fur trade.
