    Chapter 13
    The fur trade had a significant impact on the Huron People as it opened up trade with the
    French. Prior to the fur trade with the European, commerce was limited to between the Huron
    and the indigenous tribes that surrounded them. It is the fur trade that opened up trade relations
    also outside the conventional agricultural products which were previously the primary goods of
    trade. Their relations with the Europeans in the 1630s also led to a surge in diseases such as the
    measles and disease. The Jesuits used the diseases as an opportunity of showcasing their healing
    prowess using western medicine. Such was the significant impact of the epidemic diseases that
    almost half of the Huron population was lost in 1640.
    The Huron were organized in tribes that featured chiefs at the helm of their leadership.
    They also lived in villages with the large villages mainly on raised areas primarily as a
    precautionary for security. They were also characteristic of coming together in large settlements
    which facilitated easy assemblage during war which was commonplace for the Indian tribes.
    The Feats of the Dead was a ceremony mainly held after 10-12 years and more so when
    the large villages shifted to new grounds. It was primarily a ceremony to celebrate and strengthen
    the relationship between the allied tribes. The contact with the French was influential to the
    Huron in that it led to the change of gifts that were used in this ceremony. There was an
    increased use of the European gifts that led to an increase in their demand and thus intensifying
    the fur trade.


    The most prominent missionaries who interacted with the Huron were the Jesuits. They
    were more tactical than the former missionaries who had failed to understand the complexity of
    the Huron people especially in engineering civilization. They used the fur trade as a channel of
    spreading the gospel to the native Indians by converting the Huron traders and using them to
    access the others. They had quite a remarkable impact especially during the epidemics.
    The Jesuits missionaries regarded the Huron people as an inferior society that was also
    barbarous and thus required a tactical approach to convert. The fur traders on the other hand
    were not overzealous in assimilating the Huron and were comfortable dealing with them as trade
    partners even offering them items such as knives so as to beef their protection and aid in fighting
    against the other indigenous tribes.
    The Huron community was in frequent warfare with the neighboring tribes. This was
    primarily fueled by blood revenge, religion and agricultural feuds. Retaliatory attacks on these
    neighboring tribes was frequent and the Huron also occasionally vented their frustrations on
    prisoners of war. The most dominant feud was mainly against the Seneca tribe and the Huron
    was in most summers at war with this neighbor.
    Chapter 14
    The Pacific Northwest people were more astute traders than their Huron counterpart and
    they were as a result more successful. They valued metal objects such as knives, chisels and
    artefacts and were more ruthless in bargaining. In exchange for these objects, they offered fur to
    the European traders at a time when fur trading was largely popular in Europe. The Pacific
    Northwest people had a reputation of examining the items closely and often rejected what they
    rendered faulty without hesitation. They were also masters of identifying the best possible price


    and thus had a reputation of moving from one ship so as to get the best deal. While the booming
    trade at the coast was something to behold, the European ships also brought diseases such as
    influenza and venereal infections that were spread to the local population and notably having a
    toll on their populations.
    The Pacific Northwest people were also socially organized with the chiefs being at the
    helm of the organization. The chiefs were so powerful especially during the fur trade as they
    provided the leeway to trade with the interior where the furs were sourced. Therefore,
    maintaining a relation with the chiefs was important in facilitating the continuity of the trade.
    They were mainly settled around the river banks and islands that served as ideal sources of fish
    and sea mammals. Due to the sufficient food supplies in their localities, they build organized
    complex societies characterized by permanent houses.
    The Potlach were ceremonies that aimed to strengthen communal relations and were
    mainly organized by chiefs of kin groups. In these ceremonies, other kin groups were invited and
    there was a large celebration that mainly involved food eating. Before the European interaction,
    there was limited exchange of goods but this changed. The Europeans brought wealth that also
    became central in the potlach ceremonies.
    Chapter 15
    The Maori who were first projected as cannibals by early European explorers were
    among the first occupants of New Zealand. They grew sweet potato and also constructed the Pa
    which was typically a fortified settlement. Growing the sweet potatoes was so valued and given
    that there was scarce land, it was commonplace to have a scramble for resources that often
    culminated to wars and fights. The Maori also had sophisticated structures of storing the sweet


    potatoes and thus ensuring that they had a good supply in times of scarcity. Potato farming was
    hugely important that during the planting season, there was no war despite the propensity of the
    tribe for war. In addition to sweet potatoes, the Mari also relied on food such as berries, dogs,
    birds and rats. Fishing was also a significant food source and they would turn to human flesh
    especially when there were prisoners of war.
    The Industrial revolution was largely impactful on the state of England. There was a drop
    of the death rates which was coupled with an increase in the population. There was also an
    abrupt shift from agrarian life which led to the evolution of a new social order which was
    associated with increase in people’s poverty and frustrations. There was a pertinent need of
    restarting afresh and the pioneers who went to New Zealand and Australia brought and
    encouraging report of the state of the lands. The preconceived land of these places as beast
    infested were banished and new notions of places that were worthwhile for a fresh start
    developed. The steam engine was also central to aiding the shift in notion of the Maori people
    and emigration to New Zealand. The longstanding reputation of the Maori as man eaters was at
    this time extinguished and New Zealand was seen a haven for those needing a new lease of life.
    War and fighting was a common feature among the Maori and sometimes they just fought
    for prestige. The most popular fighting is a wrestling match that took place on a beach for almost
    18 hours. While fighting over land was common, it was not mainly the primary cause of the
    fights. Typically, they fought to avenge insults, and also obtain human flesh for eating. They
    were also ever in fear of war and therefore it was c...
