Transcript of The Voyageurs
A voyageur was someone that moved animal furs by canoe while the fur trade was going on. Voyageurs traveled the length and width of Canada by a network of lakes and rivers by canoe.
The voyageurs paddle for 14-16 hours a day while singing songs to keep up the rhythm. The voyageurs paddle 50 strokes a minute.
Some of the voyageurs traveled great distances by canoe to explore and trade where Europeans hadn't discovered yet.
