Unit 1 Lesson 7 - The French and Indian War Lesson Objective:  In this lesson, the student will discuss how the French and Indian War impacted the American  Revolution, including who was involved, causes, turning points, and the outcome. In lesson 3, you learned that European settlement in North America was dominated by three nations:  England,  France, and Spain.  Each of these nations interacted differently with the Native Americans who already lived on the  continent.   Along the Atlantic Coast and in Canada, England and France competed for power.  Both nations established  colonies and traded with the Indians.  The Europeans wanted furs provided by the Indians to sell in Europe.  The  Indians wanted European goods, such as tools and weapons.  The French established trade networks with the  Algonquian and Huron Indians, while the British established a trade network with the Iroquois League.  These  trade networks often led to military alliances, pulling the Indians into European conflicts.   The French and Indian War had its roots in a struggle for the control of colonies and trade routes in North  America.  In North America, the conflict was referred to as the French and Indian War, but Europeans called it the  Seven Years’ War.  Consequences of the French and Indian War British colonists viewed the end of the war as a cause for celebration, because the French presence had prevented  British colonists from moving west. On the other hand, Indians living in the former French territory were threatened
