    Cree hunter with trade gun

  • Francis Marcoux

    This photograph shows a Cree man hunting with a trade gun, clad in Hudson’s Bay Company clothing. I found it to be of interest as typifying the fur trade era. It also typifies life in the transitional Aspen Parkland, which is usually overlooked while emphasis is placed on the horse culture of the open prairie, or the northern forests.

  • Wynnchester Camp & Adventure

    Traditional Gear: "Runners of the woods" was any French-Canadian who traveled in New France and the interior of the North. Early fur trade era this meant circumventing the normal channels by going deeper into the wilderness to trade. Later it involved trading without permission from the French authorities. They ventured into hostile Iroquois territory to trade various European items for furs, especially beaver pelts, and learned the trades and practices of the Native people who inhabited there.
