Outline the results of fur trade from the points of view of both the French traders and the Native peoples whom they encountered.

-more demand for types of fur = more wealth to gain
-Trading posts were built
-War begins = French vs Natives
-Trade was interrupted by problems
-New France conquered by the British
-Trade regulations returned to colonies

Ms. Sue what is this really asking me to do? I am really confused. This question is messing me up.

    The advantages of the fur trade for the French traders were that they got to control the main waterways throughout the west, they had a sure supply of birch bark needed for canoes, many of the trade good were well liked by the indians, they also maintained good relationships with the Natives. The disadvantages of the fur trade for the Natives and the French were the start and growth of the Hudson Bay Company, because the heads of companies like the Hudson Bay Company and the North West Company were sent to the Americas on a task of defeat by the monarchic governments and business societies of Europe. This company introduced foreign concepts like money and financial conquest. The Natives did not understand the long
    term effects of accepting foreign ideals, which would have on their people; they could lose control over their national home lands through them. The Hudson bay company was not respected by many french canadian fur traders.

    I don`t know if this is right. There is too much information on this, and I`m unable to shorten that information out, to add it in here.

    Thanks, is there info in there which I haven`t added. I`d like small bits of important info in there which I need. Does this sentence make sense:

    The Natives did not understand the long term effects of accepting foreign ideals, which would have on their people; they could lose control over their national home lands through them.

    "The Natives did not understand the long term effects of accepting foreign ideals, which would have on their people; they could lose control over their national home lands through them. "

    That sentence makes sense. But this is a little better:

    The Natives did not understand the long term effects of accepting foreign ideals; they could lose control over their national home lands because of these foreign deals.
