General background of Métis history One of the human effects of the fur trade is the development of a new race of people. They are the descendants of French fur trappers and the Indian women they married. Because of the antagonism of the indigenous communities and the withdrawal of the French governmental interests from Canada, these mixed race people are forced to form separate communities. We know them as the Métis.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
