What is new France

The name Gallia Nova (New France) was originally recorded in 1529 on a map made by the brother of Giovanni da Verrazano who, in the service of France , had explored the coasts of North America in 1524 from what is now the Carolinas to north Nova Scotia.

Who were the first nations people

First nations people are descendants of the original inhabitants of Canada who lived here thousands of years before the European explorers did. First nations people were called Indians because when the explorers found them they thought they were in India ,now first nations people prefer to be identified by there nations [example] Cree, Mohawk and more.

who were the European in new France and early Canada

The Europeans in early Canada and new France were mostly traders or journalists who wanted to learn about the country.

Relationships between the Europeans and first nations people

The two groups would mostly get along so they both could learn from each other but sometimes they would fight over land or power so they could be the dominant group.

The industry in early Canada

The two groups would trade to get things they didn’t have or couldn’t get. The Europeans would often trade things like gunpowder in exchange for things like fur or food. Long before the Europeans arrived the first nations people had established trading patterns with there other north American alliances. They would trade things like pottery, silver and copper tools. The Europeans traded cast metal beads used to bead items.

compare that to the industry of today

Todays industry generates more product like plastic water bottles but the efficient machines cost more money and cause more pollution. Some industrys today use methods that are better for the envirerment
