The first nations had been trading among themselves for a long time.

They used the barter system. Trading parties, and many good long distances to trade their neighbours.
I am so exited to open my gift!

Thank you for sharing the peace pipe.
People traded to get what they needed.
2 beaver pelts for 1 knife please.
French people *
Before trade began, those who had travelled a long way would rest for a bit
They would establish feelings of respect and trust with their hosts by exchanging gifts and sharing the peace pipe
When the French arrived, they adopted this way of doing business.
