Trading Ideas

Come and discover the First Nations of northeastern North America through their great trade gatherings. You will discover the way of life and material culture of the Iroquoians and Algonquians, and in particular their trading activities. Trade was very important for the First Nations. It made it possible for them to exchange their surplus items for resources and items that they lacked, and also to form political and military alliances.

Trading Ideas is a virtual exhibit where you will learn that you can trade more than just objects!
