Chapter 10 - Early Settlement
I wonder if you'll need to know these...?
The Oblates and the Grey Nuns are examples of missionary groups. What were they each known for?
How would the river lot system have helped with farming?
Why would the arrival of the railroad affect the amount of settlers that came to the area?
How do you think people knew from Europe, Québec and the USA, to come to Alberta?
Were an important part of the development of Alberta.
Men worked as hunters, trappers, voyageurs, and farmers.
Women made pemmican and traded it to the fur trading companies.
Many Métis became farmers as the buffalo died out.
What is pemmican and why was it an ideal food?
Explain whether you think it would be difficult for the Métis to change jobs (go from hunting to farming).
Epidemics hit, spreading diseases to numerous people.
Hospitals were badly needed due to how many sick people there were.
Some people had resistance to the disease. The First Nations people did NOT as they had never contacted these diseases before, the Europeans had.
Smallpox, measles, and whooping cough were the main diseases. They could be deadly and they killed many First Nations people.
Whole families and communities were killed due to the diseases.
Reduced the population of the First Nations by about 90%. Think of it this way... if there were a million people, 900 000 would have died.
Explain in your own words how diseases impacted settlements and First Nations?
Warning, the next photo is graphic. Skip ahead two slides if you would not like to view it. It is going to show what smallpox looked like.
There were three main reasons why the representatives felt that forming a country would be advantageous for the colonies:
1) They could trade/sell goods easier.
2) Worried the USA would take over them, they could defend themselves.
3) They could afford to build a railroad and move west.
July 1, 1867, the Province of Canada, Nova Scotia, and New Brunswick joined in Confederation.
Women and First Nations people did not have a chance to vote for/against Confederation.
John A. Macdonald was the first prime minister of Canada. He felt that Canada should be larger; it should stretch from sea to sea. This would be his goal.
What would have been your goal if you were the first prime minister of Canada?
The Move West
They wanted to move west because:
There was excellent farmland
They wanted to populate the large area
They didn't want the USA to take over it
Created the North West Mounted Police because:
They wanted to show that the prairies were controlled by Canada.
Wanted to create law and order.
Wanted to stop the whiskey traders.
Many forts were constructed to house the NWMP
The Lieutenant Governor and a Legislative Assembly took charge of the government.
The North-West Territories decided that English would be their language. The French speaking people were unhappy about this.
Eventually they allowed French education.
