The Women and Men of the Fur Trade

    DESCRIPTION

    During the fur trade, Europeans relied heavily on the knowledge of Indigenous women and men. This program highlights multiple perspectives on the fur trade following the Seven Years’ War (1756–1763), and examines the relationships that made trade networks possible. Students will use primary text sources and artifacts to explore the perspectives of Indigenous women, Indigenous men, and Europeans.
