Great Peace of Mon­treal, 1701

Kayak (Canada) - - FEATURE STORY -

About 40 dif­fer­ent First Na­tions from a huge area stretch­ing from the At­lantic Ocean to the Great Lakes made this Treaty with the French to end years of fight­ing over com­pet­ing fur trade in­ter­ests between the French and the Bri­tish. The pic­tures of an­i­mals are the Chiefs’ sig­na­tures. In 2001, Mon­treal marked the 300th an­niver­sary of the Treaty by re­nam­ing part of a down­town park Place de la Grande-Paix-de-Mon­tréal.
