In 1608 under the leadership of Samuel de Champlain and with the help of an exploration party the City of Quebec was founded in the name of France. Quebec City was located in the St. Laurence River Valley of North America, and along with learning about the new terrain Catholic Missionaries and French explorers had to learn and become accustomed to Native American peoples. In two separate documents different viewpoints are explored about the interactions between Native people and these missionaries, and one about the requests of the French government about how to handle the Native Americans. All of the viewpoints differ greatly and it is a reflection of the authors of the documents, comparing them gives a better understanding of the different types of Europeans exploring and settling this New World.
