Coppermine River, Nunavut, 450 km
Posted January 2003
Copper deposits found along the river were important to the first peoples who lived there. Many important archaeological sites, distinguished by copper artifacts, are found along the Coppermine. It was stories of these copper deposits that brought Samuel Hearne to the area in 1771. Hearne's documented overland journey to the river, and the massacre he witnessed at Bloody Falls, brought the Coppermine into the history books. Other explorers, such as Sir John Franklin, soon followed and the Coppermine became an important exploration and fur trade route. The river continues to support the Inuit subsistence lifestyle. Bloody Fall on the lower Coppermine River is an area of great scenic and historic interest. For more on Bloody Fall, check out this web site . Photo by Michael Peake.

Canada French explorer Jacques Cartier [1491-1557], who reached the Gulf of St. Lawrence in 1534, is generally regarded as the founder of Canada. But English seaman John Cabot [1425-1500] sighted Newfoundland 37 years earlier, in 1497, and Vikings are believed to have reached the Atlantic coast about 1000 AD (Duborg and Isted, 1996). Canadian settlement was pioneered by the French who established Quebec City ( Samuel de Champlain in 1608) and Montreal ( Sieur de Maisonneuve in1642) and declared New France a colony in 1663. Niagara Falls was discovered by French Franciscan missionary and explorer Louis Hennepin in 1678.
In 1692 fourteen-year-old Madeleine de Vercheres , two terrified soldiers, and her younger brother held out for over a week against an Iroquois raid on the St. Lawrence River near Montreal.
Britain decided in 1711 to attack French Canada, but the French sank 10 ships as they entered the St. Lawrence River. News of the naval disaster persuaded Sir Francis Nicholson to call off an attack that was planned against Montreal.

INTRODUCTION 1. Explore the reasons behind some town, city, river, and/or street names in your community. 2. How should names be selected? New buildings, roads and streets require naming. Could we use bird and animal names? Can we draw from our historical and cultural backgrounds to select meaningful names? 3. Select things to name in your community. Decide which new names would be appropriate. 4. Consider reasons based on history, tradition, culture, and geography. Look at some names in northern Canada that tell about that part of the world. Find these places on a map. Search for more information about people who had places named in their honor. NAMES ACROSS THE NORTH What's in a name? Names of some places are based on historical background INDIAN NAMES First Nations peoples have been named by themselves as well as by other aboriginal groups. Those who shared a common territory, spoke the same language, and had similar customs called themselves "we, people". The word for people in Inuktituk is "Inuit". The word for people among the Athapaskan speaking Indians is "Dene", and the Algonkian word for people is "Eno", "Eyo", or "Ewo". Some smaller bands of people would call their neighbors such things as people of the mountains or people of the pointed coats. Enemies were called names which were rude. These included things such as bad people, stinkers, or louse eggs. The Indian referred to Inuit people as Eskimos, or eaters of raw meat. The Cree called the inhabitants living inland as "strangers" hence, the origin of the word "Athabascan". It was the word that white men heard which referred to the many northern Indian groups inhabiting Canada's sub-Arctic.

Captain Juan Bautista de Anza (1736-1788) was a Mexican-born trailblazer and explorer. He was the first person of European descent to establish an overland trail from Mexico to the northern Pacific coast of California (then called New Albion). He found a corridor through the desolate Sonoran Desert. His expeditions brought hundreds of settlers to California. He founded the cities of Los Angeles, San Francisco, and San Jose. De Anza was the commander of the presidio at Tubac. BERING, VITUS J. Vitus Jonassen Bering (1681-1741) was a Danish explorer and navigator who explored the seas off Alaska and northeastern Siberia. Bering was a sublieutenant in the fleet of Tsar Peter I the Great of Russia. From 1725-1730, Bering led an expedition to determine whether or not Asia and North America were connected by a land bridge. Bering sailed through what is now known as the Bering Strait, finding a sea route around Siberia to China. He concluded that Asia and North America were not connected (although he did not actually see North America due to fog).

Tips for living the abundant life
What Do Winston Churchill and Sir Alexander Mackenzie Have in Common
Sir Alexander Mackenzie ranks as one of the most remarkable persons of North American wilderness history and, indeed, as one of the greatest travelers of all time. His transcontinental crossing predated (and indeed inspired) the more famous Lewis and Clark American expedition by twelve years. Even Bernard De Voto, the well-known Utah-born historian said of Mackenzie, "In courage, in the faculty of command, in ability to meet the unforeseen with resources of craft and skill, in the will that cannot be overborne, he has had no superior in the history of American exploration." I remember singing around the YMCA Camp Elphinstone and Camp Howdy campfires: ‘This Land is your Land, This Land is My Land, from the Arctic Circle to the Great Lake Waters,…from the Atlantic Ocean to Vancouver Island, this Land was made for you and me". ’ In Mackenzie was realized the dream of a Canada stretching from sea to sea. Beneath the lion and the unicorn supporting the coat of arms of Canada are the Latin words: A MARI USQUE AD MARE, taken from a Biblical text, ‘He shall have dominion also from sea to sea and from the river to the ends of the earth. Without Alexander Mackenzie (and his Nor’Wester friends Simon Fraser and David Thompson), Canada would have lost her entire Pacific Coast, being shut off from any access to the sea. In 1764, Alexander Mackenzie was born in Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis, a windswept, rugged island in the Outer Hebrides off the west coast of Scotland. When Alexander was ten, his mom died. Neighbours, knowing he had memorized long passages from the Bible, predicted that Alexander would become a clergyman. Through the local pastor’s library, he learned about astronomy and the use of telescopes. At age 13, Alexander tabulated all the animal and plant life in the Hebrides, and he and his pastor tried unsuccessfully to get it published in London.

Roald Amundsen (1872-1928) was a Norwegian polar explorer who was the first person to fly over the North Pole in a dirigible (May 11-13, 1926) and was the first person to reach the South Pole. Amundsen and his small expedition reached the South Pole on December 14, 1911, traveling by dog sled. Amundsen was also the first person to sail around the world through the Northeast and Northwest passages, from the Atlantic to the Pacific (in 1905). He was the first person to reach both the North and South Poles. Amundsen died in a plane crash attempting to rescue his friend, the Italian explorer Umberto Nobile who was lost in an airship. For more information on Amundsen, click here BOYD, LOUISE A.
Louise Arner Boyd (1887-1972), known as the "ice woman," was an American who repeatedly explored and photographed the Arctic Ocean; she was also the first woman to fly over the North Pole. Born in San Rafael, California, (near San Francisco), Boyd inherited the family fortune (made by her father's investment company) when she was 33 years old (in 1920).

U.S. Naval Academy In 1845, the United States Naval Academy Library consisted of 361 books, some of which had been purchased new, but many of which were sent from ships or naval yards around the country in response to a navy-wide request to help build the Library. It is interesting to note that in 1848, Midshipman (and future Commodore) William Penn McCann wrote in a letter to his father: "There is a good library here, especially for Naval scholars." ( Letters from Annapolis: Midshipmen Write Home by Anne Marie Drew, 1998. McCann's original letters are located in the Nimitz Library Special Collections and Archives Division.) The following is a list of some of the books that McCann would have found in the original library collection. These books are now a part of the "Annapolis Collection," located in the Special Collections of the Naval Academy Library.
