Transcript of Pierre de la Verendrye (D)

Pierre

Who was Pierre de La Verendrye?
Pierre is a man who is an explorer. He was born in New France, 1685. At the age of twelve, he joined a French army and spent the next four years as a soldier. Being tired of army life he returned to New France. This man journied with his three sons, from Quebec as far as the Assiniboine River. His sons names were Francois and Louis-Joseph, but I dont know the other name. His sons were the first Eroupeans to reach the Rocky Mountains. When Pierre was commanding a fur trading post on Lake Nipigon, he heard about a giant western sea from some First Nations people. He made many journies to find this sea. That sea is now known as the Pacific Ocean. On his journies, he had set up six fur trading posts for the French.
How Did His Arrival
Change Things?
Pierre wanted to build trading posts because he wanted the First Nations to bring their furs to him, instead of the HBC to recive them (Hudson Bay Company). This shows he may not have liked the HBC, and worked for the NWC (North West Company). The HBC probably werent happy about that.
