    Use the Print command in your browser's File menu to print this page. Exploration is one of the oldest and most widespread of human activities. People in all times and places have engaged in some form of exploration. Even children explore their immediate surroundings. However, the people we usually think of as explorers are those individuals who traveled over long distances and to unfamiliar areas for certain purposes. For example, some explorers have sought to learn more about an unknown part of the world or have traveled for adventure. Others have hoped to gain fame or wealth for themselves or to expand their country's trade or territory. Still others have set out on expeditions to faraway lands for religious reasons. World known by Europeans in the 1500's In many cases, as explorers came upon places that were new to them, they encountered people who had been living in these areas for centuries. When Europeans began arriving in the Americas in the late 1400's, for example, they found the continents to be inhabited by the people who are now commonly called American Indians. Sometimes, the inhabitants helped explorers by acting as interpreters and providing information about geography and sources of food and water. More frequently, explorers tried to conquer or colonize newly found lands. In many cases, fighting broke out between the new arrivals and the local peoples. People have engaged in exploration since prehistoric times. Prehistoric human beings crossed vast areas of land and water and eventually populated all the continents except Antarctica. Later navigators started out from the islands of Southeast Asia and settled Hawaii, New Zealand, and other Pacific Islands.

He entered (c. 1779) a Montreal fur-trading firm and in a short time became partner of one of the firms that merged (1787) to form the North West Company Voyages . . . to the Frozen and Pacific Oceans (1801) won him wide recognition and a knighthood in 1802. Mackenzie was elected in 1805 to the Legislative Assembly of Lower Canada, but he soon returned (1808) to Scotland, where he lived the rest of his life. See his journals and letters, ed. by W. K.

    2-007: SIR ALEXANDER MACKENZIE By Dorthea Calverley In 1787 Peter Pond’s successor paddled into the Peace River country. He was twenty-four year old Alexander Mackenzie, a "brand new partner, recently appointed to replace Peter Pond in the rich Athabasca trade department" of the newly re-organized Northwest Company. He was destined not to be the first white man on the Peace, but the first to leave us a remaining written record of the area. Certainly he became its most famous figure. Little is known of his early life except that he came from Stornoway in the Outer Hebrides as a motherless boy of twelve. At the time the Seven Year War had ended but the American Revolutionary war was about to begin. England was poor; Scotland and the Isles, always poorer after the times of Bonnie Prince Charlie, were poorer still. The crofters or small farmers were being forced off their lands. Many like Mackenzie, father and son, found their way to the New England colonies. When the American Revolution almost immediately broke out the Mackenzies, loyal to the British Crown, were more akin to the Canadians who did not join in the Revolution. His father, a British officer, went back into the army, apparently, and died. He had sent his young son to Montreal for safety in 1779. Alexander probably attended a school of some kind for three years. At sixteen Alexander, and later Roderick, were apprenticed to the Montreal firm of Mr. Gregory, who later traded out of Detroit as the Gregory - McLeod firm and which still later was absorbed by the Northwesters.

Their motivations vary from the desire for wealth and fame to a quest for knowledge. Some expeditions are more successful and others more dangerous, but all are interesting! By completing this unit, the student will have met the following expectations of the Ontario Curriculum Grades 1 - 6 - Social Studies : Grade 6 Aboriginal Peoples and European Explorers. -identify early explorers (e.g., Viking, French, English) who established settlements in Canada and explain the reasons for their exploration (e.g., fishing; fur trade, resulting in the establishment of the Hudson's Bay Company); -identify technological developments and cultural factors that led to the exploration of North America; -identify some of the consequences of Aboriginal and European interactions (e.g., economic impact of the fur trade on Aboriginal peoples; transmission of European diseases to Aboriginal peoples). -construct and read a variety of graphs, charts, diagrams, maps, and models for specific purposes (e.g., to trace the routes of the explorers);

    Main index The Deh Cho Deh Cho Fort Simpson Fort Liard Providence ... Nahanni Butte Aboriginal people lived off the land in the Deh Cho long before non-natives found and exploited the riches of the region. Historians and archaeologists theorize the first inhabitants wandered into the Deh Cho (big river) more than 10,000 years ago, after the last ice age. For more than 2,000 years, the ancestors of today's Dene hunted caribou, moose as well as smaller game. They also fished the flowing waters of the mighty Mackenzie River, using birch bark and spruce canoes, toboggans and snowshoes for transportation. In the early 1700s, the fur trade was booming to the south. In time, it would push its way north to the Northwest Territories. As early as 1715, fur traders were heading to the northern reaches of Alberta. By the 1780s, after Sir Alexander Mackenzie's navigation of the Mackenzie River, the fur trade became a northern enterprise. By 1821, trading posts were popping up everywhere along the rivers and streams of the North - the highways of the fur trade. The 19th century was a period of rapid change for the North, and the Deh Cho was certainly no exception.

    Captain James Cook
    James Cook was born on the 27th October 1728 in the small Yorkshire town of Marton. Unlike the majority of Naval officers of the time he was not the son of rich or noble parents. In fact he was the son of a Scottish farm labourer and a Yorkshire girl. He was intelligent enough to impress his father's employer who paid for the young James Cook's schooling.
    After he finished school his parents apprenticed him to a grocer in Whitby, where he was not especially happy. It was there, however, that he got a taste for life on the sea. In those days the port of Whitby was a bustling place, always busy with all kinds of ships: fishing vessels, navy ships, and colliers. It was on a collier that Cook served first.
    In 1755, the year before the Seven Years War broke out between England and France, Cook left his ship and signed up with the Royal Navy. In the Navy James Cook worked his way up through the ranks, eventually rising to command his own vessel, unusual for an enlisted man. His first mission was to map the estuary of the St. Lawrence River prior to a naval assault on Quebec. It was those surveys that made Cook's name, along with the information he obtained from observing and recording an eclipse of the sun in 1766. The surveys were so accurate that they remained in use until the beginning of the Twentieth Century.
    His surveys and scientific observations, coupled with his own scientific ability and his being in the right place at the right time led to his being chosen to captain the Endeavour in 1768 on a mission to explore the great unknown of the Pacific Ocean and scientifically record everything that was encountered. It was the first of the three great voyages of discovery he led in the South Pacific.

    - Archives: Further information on any of the news pieces listed below may be obtained by contacting the Canadian Heritage Rivers System (CHRS) Secretariat at PROCLAMATION OF CANADIAN RIVERS DAY Posted June 2002 OTTAWA, June 21, 2002 The Minister of Canadian Heritage, Sheila Copps, today signed a Ministerial Proclamation to "declare that the second Sunday of June will be celebrated henceforth as Canadian Rivers Day". Among the groups calling for an annual Canadian Rivers Day was the Canadian Heritage Rivers Board, comprised of representatives from the Government of Canada and all the provincial and territorial governments. Delegates to the 2001 Canadian Rivers Heritage Conference unanimously endorsed the same concept. The idea was first raised in Parliament by Secretary of State Stephen Owen, Member of Parliament for Vancouver Quadra and carried forward in a Private Member's Motion by Karen Kraft Sloan, Member of Parliament for York North. The distinguished non-profit organization Rivers Canada, founded by President Dr. David Goranson, has agreed to undertake a leadership role in coordinating nationwide activities for the first Canadian Rivers Day to be celebrated on June 8, 2003.
