2 IN WHAT WAY DID FIRST NATIONS BELONG TO THE SOCIETY ESTABLISHED BY FRANCE? IN WHAT WAY DID THEY NOT BELONG? BelongNot Belong

3 They did not belong in the sense that France did not accept their spiritual beliefs. First Nations belonged as partners in the French fur trade. IN WHAT WAY DID FIRST NATIONS BELONG TO THE SOCIETY ESTABLISHED BY FRANCE? IN WHAT WAY DID THEY NOT BELONG? BelongNot Belong

5 In the Thirteen Colonies, Britain seemed to have little interest in First Nations at all – not as partners nor potential Christians. Britain wanted to establish a society without involvement of First Nations.

7 Points to consider:

8 IN YOUR OPINION, WHICH STYLE OF IMPERIALISM MIGHT HAVE THE BIGGEST IMPACTS ON FIRST NATIONS: THE FRENCH OR THE BRITISH? WHY? Points to consider: France’s objective to convert First Nations to Catholicism targetted a core part of First Nations’ identity: their spirituality. France also saw conversion as a way to “civilize” First Nations societies by encouraging peoples such as the Anishinabe to take up farming. This had economic consequences for many First Nations.

9 IN YOUR OPINION, WHICH STYLE OF IMPERIALISM MIGHT HAVE THE BIGGEST IMPACTS ON FIRST NATIONS: THE FRENCH OR THE BRITISH? WHY? Points to consider: Britain’s desire for land meant that British settlers pushed First Nations off the land. The societies of First Nations grew from the land, and the land was central to their spirituality. So this had major consequences for First Nations, not only economically but also in terms of identity.

10 READ: HISTORY HAPPENS How did the fashion of beaver felt hats influence the fur trade and the expansion of New France? How do the beaver felt hats relate to the economic factors of imperialism (i.e. monopoly) This article relates history with an element of imagination. Which words and phrases sound “modern”?

11 A EUROPEAN FASHION – BEAVER FELT HATS – SPURRED THE DEVELOPMENT OF NEW FRANCE. WHAT ROLE DOES FASHION PLAY IN OUR LIVES AND ECONOMY TODAY? DO ANY FASHIONS TODAY HAVE BIG IMPACTS, LIKE HATS DID ON NEW FRANCE?

12 Issues to consider: The fashion industry is a big business in the world today. Clothing manufacturers compete for profits through pricing and advertising. Brand-name “image” is a key selling feature, and expresses the wealth and status of the wearer, just like the size of the brim on a beaver felt hat.

Cotton clothing is a popular item in today’s fashion world. In response to this market, the former Soviet Union rerouted rivers to irrigate cotton fields. This led to impacts on the Aral Sea, which has shrunk dramatically. This has triggered environmental and economic problems in today’s Kazakhastan.

The fashion industry relies on cheap labour in countries such as China and Guatemala (and sometimes uses child labour) to keep prices competitive.

15 A LARGE MODERN COMPANY HIRES PEOPLE IN A FOREIGN COUNTRY TO PRODUCE T-SHIRTS FOR TEENAGERS IN CANADA. THE COMPANY PAYS THESE LABOURERS MUCH LESS THAN IT WOULD HAVE TO PAY CANADIAN LABOURERS. THE COMPANY MAKES A HUGE PROFIT, NONE OF WHICH GOES TO THE LABOURERS IN THE FOREIGN COUNTRY.

What similarities does this arrangement have to colonizations? What purpose did colonies serve? This situation has costs and benefits, and the distribution of those costs and benefits is key to evaluating the issue. Benefits include: lower prices for consumers in Canada (not all of whom have lots of money); jobs in countries that need jobs; profits for Canadian companies. Costs include: loss of jobs for Canadian workers; impacts of low wages on workers in other countries; “control” of other countries by big companies (which makes it similar to colonization).
