The chief speech

I, the chief of the Aboriginals, am exceptionally pleased to welcome trade with you, the Europeans. We certainly need goods from each other. You have the goods that we need and we have the goods that you need. We are most eager to receive metal tools, pots and other items similar to these categories. We also need to trade for iron-making technology. We have the fur you desire from all the animals that we hunt which will help you in the building of canoes for transportation which is mostly needed and very important for transporting goods and the people. The fur will also be needed for the every year long and very cold winter in order to keep your selves warm under the furry clothes and hats that you will be fabricated beforehand. Fur will be also useful to make profit in your mother country. We, as Aboriginal peoples, really appreciate and thank you very much for your wonderful time. We are looking forward to this trade!

  1. Hey Jess!
    I like the way you made your speech speaking directly to the Europeans! I can actually use this post as a study tool concerning the materials being traded! πŸ™‚
    Good work!
    I was wondering why you thought they would be for trade? to compare with my post since mine was against.
    Thanks!

      Yeah I was wondering the same thing about yours.
      I chose for trade because there are many conveniences and advantages for trading as I’ve mentioned πŸ™‚
      How about you ?

    I really loved your post! You have a great understanding of what was going to be traded between the Aboriginals and the French. Maybe you could have added the fact that the French could have also used the fur to make profit in their mother land.

    I loved this speech. I like how you used so many examples in showing why they should trade.

  4. Good speech! Lots of good points, and I can imagine someone actually saying it. Except of course about the profit, which we know about but the chief’s in those times wouldn’t have understood as well as we do. But it was interesting to hear it there in the speech. I shows you know how to get course knowledge into the assignment to show what you know. Good job.
