1     Caption: Mähsette Kuiuab Chief of the Cree indians, 1840-1843 by Karl Bodmer
 
2     Canada has many First Nations tribes, but only one had the numbers and close relationship with European explorers. That one was the Cree.
 
3     When the French began trading and trapping in North America, they allied with many tribes including the Cree. The Cree enjoyed the rewards of trade more than most. First they helped move furs closer to French trading areas for the rewards of guns and powder.
 
4     When the English put their first trading post near James Bay, they also became allies of the Cree. With a source of weapons and powder closer to home, the Cree increased their own power in the area.
