Transcript of Filles du Roi: Struggles they Faced

Cooperation and conflict
Les Filles Du roi:
Struggles they faced
Les Filles du Roi
lead terrible lives of separation, broken promises, loneliness, and sadness.
By far, they faced the most struggles in all of New France.
But, only one thing that happened throughout their lives is truly significant.
This one struggle affected the rest of New France, as well as most of the Filles du Roi.
"Manipulation".
The Filles du Roi were promised many things when they agreed to come to New France:
Many of the Filles du Roi never got even half of what they were promised, or even less,
but they were still expected to help New France and keep populating.
What they got in return for their sacrifice to New France was...
Money (Livres);
Food and livestock;
Their own family;
New, good-quality clothes;
A good life.
Work;
Expectations;
Hate;
Abuse;
Separation;
Loneliness.
Did this struggle lead up to conflict?
I think that the Filles du Roi's struggles didn't lead up to future conflict in New France.
This is because...
Their
opinions
were
unvalued;
Since they were
girls,
no one thought
they could
ever
be
taken seriously;
Whenever they
stepped
out
of
line,
there was always some one there to
threaten them
until they
behaved.
In conclusion,
les Filles du Roi had the worst lives out of all the people of New France.
The Filles du Roi's lives were terrible, full of manipulation, hate and sadness.
But, they stayed strong through their entire lives, despite what was going on around them.

Filles du Roi
Habitants
The group of people who made up most
of New France's population; most
farmed for a living, others owned
shops, inns and taverns. Filles du Roi
often married to Habitants. They did hard work all day farming, but were still
expected to clean, care for children, and
cook meals for their family. Their husbands were very hard on them.
-farmed for a living
-sometimes owned shops
-were paid for their crops and items they sold
-most of their family came with them to
New France
-the winter was cold
-sometimes did not have enough food
-had to give a quarter of their crops to the Seigneur (landowner?)

-given a few supplies (clothes,
a little money)
-was promised a dowry but
never got it
-forced to marry and have a
big family
-worked very hard for their
family
-lonely, tired, depressed, stressed
-did not have proper rights
Coueur de bois
-learnt how to hunt from natives
-traded with natives and other hunters
-could trade metal objects for fur/other natural materials
-since they sold/traded objects, had enough money/supplies
and never ran out of food
-had to hunt to trade and get meat
-hunting license could be taken away
-had to adapt to life hunting for weeks a time, no matter what
the weather
Coueur de bois were hunters. They learned a lot about how to hunt from the natives and would trade with them to get fur and other natural materials to send back to France and New France. They usually hunted for weeks at a time, and Filles du Roi that married Coeuer de Bois were left at home alone to look after the house and children all by herself. Afterwards, the Coueur de Bois came home hungry and stressed, and took it out by being angry with their wives.

Red=negative,
green=positive
See how many more negatives there are than any other role?
compare & contrast
As you can see, mostly everyone in New France didn't treat the Filles du Roi nicely, and disrespected them entirely. This just made their lives in New France harder.
No one was willing to help the Filles du Roi (who came to New France as poor, sometimes orphaned, girls), so the only interactions between them at all was negative interactions; shouting, insulting, and abuse.
Reflecting on my Media Presentation

To make this
media
presentation

effective,
I made sure I had
enough
information
to make it
detailed,
but not enough to make it
boring.
To do this, I added
c
o
l
o
u
r
s
,

interesting

effects
like
f
a
di
n
g
, and put my words in
p
a
t
t

r
ns
so you'd never be just
sitting around
l
oo
king at a
big block of text.
Also, I've been using for a while, so I've gotten
pretty
good
at making
media
presentations
with it. It
definitely helps
if you
know how to use the

technology

properly, to make a more effective presentation.
There are
ways
that I could
improve
my
presentation.
I could
add more pictures
to give the
audience
a
better

visual
of the
Fille du Roi's lifestyle.

Strategies

One of the
texts
I
read
to
gain information
about the
Filles du Roi
was
very long and difficult
to
read,
so I had to
make predictions
to what was
important
and what was
just details.

I read that the
Filles du Roi
were
pushed
into
marrying men
once they
arrived in New France
because they were
threatened
to become a nun for
the

rest

of

their
lives.
I
predicted
that, since others
didn't care
about what the
girls
wanted (they were pushed into
marriage
and
threatened
)
then they also saw the
Filles du Roi
to be below them, which
resulted
in
insults,

abuse,
and
disrespect.
