Interacting with Native Americans
Native Americans and English
The Indians had mixed feelings about the arrival of the English in 1607. The English settled in Jamestown, where Indians had lived before them. Their first reaction was based off of what had happened with them and the Spanish. The Natives attacked an English ship before it even landed.
Native Americans and the French
The French were the first Europeans with who Wisconsin Indians made contact with. They established the colony of Quebec in Canada in 1608 and quickly developed economic and political relationships with many Indian groups in the St. Lawrence River valley and the Great Lakes.
What were the results of the European and Native American interaction?
The Europeans took over the Natives land, and fought many wars, to create present day America.
