From 1634 to 1763, the area that would become Wisconsin was part of the French Empire. Your instructor is a professor of history at UWM-Waukesha, earned a Ph.D. and has published several books on Wisconsin, Midwestern and Native American history. He will bring his expertise to this course and outline how the demands of the fur trade shaped relations between the many Native American nations and the Montreal-based traders, requiring almost constant negotiation among colonial officials, missionaries and Native leaders. Recent scholarship has shed new light on the Native-French alliance and reveals often fraught relationship that finally broke when British traders and settlers pushed into the Great Lakes region in the middle of the eighteenth century.
