Storyboard Text

  • You need a licence now to go trade with First Nations!!
  • Uhhh...
  • The coureur des bois were also known as the runners of the woods. They ran through the woods to trade with First Nations people. They often did not have a licence so they were concidered outlaws.
  • Runners of the woods also traveled by canoe, but if they were alone the journey was especially hard to do, such as carrying the canoe on land when needed.
  • Later Jean-baptiste Colbert had to issue a new law that you HAD to have a licence to trade but that did not work out because it illegal trading only escalated in Monteal as did the amount of beaver fur.
