Hi! I'm Jacques Cartier, and I'm an explorer that helped found Canada.
One day Jacque decided that he wanted to sail to the already discovered americas and bring back all the gold and riches that he could find.
Jacque crossed the atlantic in 20 days and started looking for a place to land in Labrador.
When Cartier landed, he saw that there were natives and that they wanted to trade. at first he refused and shot at them but then when they kept following he decided to trade them trinkets of small value such as knives, glass beads and combs.
Cartier claimed the land and established a spot that would be theirs for the next 200 years. the natives saw this and realized he was claiming the land
The natives did not want the europeans to claim their land, but after being pacified by gifts and food and drink they had accepted them. Cartier want to bring some of the natives home so he asked for the chiefs two sons and offered gifts if he could bring them. Then they departed
