|Arn Kind, French Voyaguer & MN Fur Trade|
Minnesota History with Arn Kind
The French Voyageur & Minnesota's Fur Trade
Role-play the parts of voyageurs and/or proud Dakota or Ojibwa Indians. Learn how these early Europeans paddled heavy, cargo-laden canoes through the vast interior of North America. We will also learn how the French and the Indians bartered with one another. The French wanting furs to be made into fashionable hats and clothing; the Dakota and Ojibwa wanting the French trade goods. These trade goods would make life easier for the Indians, and were a mixture of cloth (cotton or wool), beads, trinkets, mirrors, traps, knives, tomahawks, and trade rifles.
