Life of Samuel de Champlain in New France Recipe Name:
Maple Syrup Candy
Maple Syrup Candy was a type of dessert that the Iroquois tribe would eat at special occasions. Quiz!!! Give us 1 reason out of the 2 we had mentioned of why the First Nation people killed Jesuits? The clothing the religious people in New France use to wear is pretty much what any Jesuit would wear back in the old days. The clothing they wore was long black robes that were tied with a rope at the waist level and most of the Jesuits in the picture are wearing hats also some Jesuits are holding a cross. Other Information In 1611, the first Jesuits arrived in New France, they had 2 immediate goals in mind:
*to spread Roman Catholic religion to the First Nations people
*to establish schools for boys, which unfortunately meant not for girls. Daily Life Life for a Jesuit in New France wasn't so easy. Jesuits would have to travel parts of the world to spread Religion. Sometimes while the Jesuits would travel they would get really ill and even die because of the harsh weather conditions which they couldn't really find out unless the Jesuits themselves go to the area and witness the weather, it also made it tougher that they didn't have the technology to tell them what the weather was back then. But what was even tougher was to spread there religion because if they tried explaining their religion to the First Nations the First Nation most of the time would kill them because of the disease they carry and because of the cultural differences between them. Hope you Enjoyed Ursuline Nuns Now we will be talking to you guys about a story of a life of a Ursuline Nun in New France. In 1619, Marie Martin was a twenty year old widow. Her husband had been a silk merchant but his business wasn't going to well. Friends told Marie to remarry but she decided to become a Ursuline Nun and entered the Convent of St. Ursula and she had entered in 1632. After some years since she had joined the Ursuline Nuns she believed that she was destined to go to Quebec and convert the First Nations people to Christianity, so in 1639 she and 2 other nuns together went out to complete there mission as some of the few nuns who would ever travel to spread the religion. Taking the name Marie de I'Incarnation she built the Ursuline mission making it one of the strongest arms of the catholic church in New France. She died in 1672. Before the Ursuline Nuns including Marie Martin, took action there was only schools for boys but because of the Ursuline Nuns the girls in New France also got an education just like the boys. What is something remarkable that Marie Martin did when she went to New France? We will specifically be talking about a European explorer named Samuel de Champlain. Samuel was called the father of New France. He was born at Brouage, in the Saintonge province of Western France, at about 1574. Most of his childhood or early life is unknown. In 1613 he wrote that he had interest in navigation since when he was very young. Samuel de Champlain made his first voyage when he was about 29 years old, he went to Spain and then to the West Indies and Africa. Samuel de Champlain was a French navigator, cartographer, draughtsman, soldier, explorer, geographer, ethnologist, diplomat, and chronicler. He founded New France and Quebec City on July 3, 1608. Samuel de Champlain got married in 1610 to a girl named Helene Boulle who was just 12 years old when they had gotten married where as Samuel was 40 years old. Samuel de Champlain was the first European Explorer to find Lake Champlain which you could see he named after himself. In October of 1635 Champlain was stricken with paralyasis. Unfortunately he died December 25th, 1635 childless, but he did have 3 adopted children. What are the names of Samuel de Champlain's 3 daughter? Life for the child of a European Explorer Samuel de Champlain had 3 children but all 3 were adopted. The names of his 3 children were Faith, Hope and Charity Champlain. When he had first adopted the girls there ages were between 11-15. After a few years the girls were given instructions from some of the veteran women (a veteran is a person who has had long or great experience in something), like Marie Rollet and the Langlois sisters, who taught them how to dress and behave as good french wives. The women also introduced the girls to Christianity and taught then the French language. But from the girls actual point of view it was said that they felt miserable of their new lives, and they were also always threatening to leave. Around 1629 to 1635 Samuel was put aboard and had begged Captain Jacques Michel if his daughters could join him for their trip to New France to give his wife Helene Boulle a surprise. The captain agreed and the 3 daughters were taken as prisoners but unfortunately they were nailed shut in a room and were raped. After that incident the girls decided not to see Champlain again, they then somehow returned to where they lived before Champlain had adopted them and Champlain returned to Quebec, but the surprising thing was that Samuel de Champlain had never mentioned anything about his daughters in his diaries. Captain Jacques Michel the man who had been so cruel to the girls died a few years later and was buried but some of the people who were related to Champlains daughters took revenge of what had happened to the girls by feeding some hungry dogs the body of the cruel captain. Life of a First Nations Person First Nations people have always had a close relationship with their land,which they believed was always theirs to use.They relied on the land for all their needs like food,clothing,transportation,shelter,and medicine.They understood the land,seasons,water and animals that surrounded them and they respected them.The first nations people respected the elders the most and looked to them for leadership and judgement.
