Metis

1733 - 1736

The French order the extermination of the last Fox (Ojibwa) Indians,
some 50 boy warriors, they are to take no prisoners.

The women and children are to be transported to
Quebec and sold as slaves.

The other Ojibwa tribes are furious and destroy the
French army, killing 60 French and 200 Indian allies.


The French try to instigate war between the Dakota and the Ojibwa.

Some believe the Jesuits are behind this action.


1733

(III)-Rene Bourassa dit LaRonde (1718-1792) was a hired man out of Montreal, Quebec from 1733 to 1735 for Michilimackinac, New France (Michigan), Lac Ouynipigon and Lac des Bois.

Henri Louis Deschamps, sieur de Boishebert, born 1679, reported to (I)-Charles de Beauharnois de La Boische (1671-1749, Governor of New France (1726-1747), that he sent the Saulteurs, Missiagues, Outaouais and Poutouatamis against the Chicachas.

Francois Louis Guyon dit Derbanne b-1666 sent Charles Leduc to the Sioux (Dakota).

Fort Detroit, New France (Michigan), or further west birth Jacques Hamelin son Louis Hamelin (1681-1693) and Catherine Neveu; married Nipissing woman.

Michillimackinac, New France (Michigan) ,birth, (IV)-Marie Anne L'Archeveque et L'Arche died September 19, 1763, Fort Detroit, New France (Michigan), daughter (III)-Augustin L/Archeveque et L'Arche b-1702 and Marie Madeleine Reaume; married Augustin Gibaut.

Fort Detroit, New France (Michigan), marriage, Pierre Levrior born February 22, 1707 son Antoine Levroir (Laferte) (a.k.a. Antoine Theroux) born 1677 died February 22, 1759; Pierre married Rose Poitevin in 1733.

(III)-Louis Pichard born February 6, 1692 Lachine, Quebec son (II)-Louis Pichard (1659-1699) and Marie Fortin, elle epouse April 26, 1700, Lachine, Quebec Jean Chotard; married 1733 Marie Anne Padoka des Ricaras, a Cahokia savage epouse August 22, 1749 (III)-Joseph Dorion, b-1717.

Joseph Robson, a stonemason, spent a three year term in the Hudson Bay, only to return in 1744 as a surveyor and supervisor of buildings.

The once proud Nation of Fox, a.k.a. Renard, Ojibwa Indians, now contains some 100 people and only 50 warriors; some mere boys. The estimate of their numbers on first contact ranges from 2,500 to 10,000 people. The French Governor, (I)-Charles Beauharnois de La Boische (1671-1749), orders Villiers and his sons to exterminate the remaining Fox without the taking of any prisoners. The women and children are to be transported to Quebec and sold as slaves. Their great Chief, Kiala, is to be sent to the West Indies to die under hard labor. All surrounding tribes are horrified and returned their Fox captives to rebuild the Fox stronghold. Sixty French from Mackinac, New France (Michigan) and 200 Indians under Villiers' command are killed in battle. Governor (I)-Charles Beauharnois de La Boische's (1671-1749) extermination plan backfired, forcing the French to again flee the area. The Ojibwa of Lake Superior are also indignant at this French assault. Francois Antoine Lefebvre Duplessis Faber Regnard (1689-1733), commander of Green Bay, New France (Wisconsin), is one of the French killed by the Sauk at their village.

As a result of the French actions, the Mississippi River has become unsafe. It is necessary to build a fort at Cahokia des Illinois with a twenty man garrison; under the command of Montchervaux.

Joseph Adams at Albany Fort, James Bay, called the Lake Superior Ojibwa 'the French Canada Indians' because they traded primarily with the Canadians. Adams had a Cree wife. He claimed her Ye Blood Royal. The Hudson Bay records the Ojibwa as Ocipwe, Echeepoes and Oachiapoia Indians. The Cree carried messages between the English of Hudson Bay and the French of Fort Saint Charles, Lake of the Woods; the round trip being 30 days. La Verendrye reported that the Monsoni and Cree are planning to attack their brothers, the Ojibwa of La Pointe, Ojibwa Country (Wisconsion). (II)-Pierre Gauthier de Varennes et de La Verendrye (1685-1749) reported when he confronted them, not to attack the Ojibwa; that they said they are going to attack the Dakota Sioux. (II)-Pierre Gauthier de Varennes et de La Verendrye (1685-1749) provided guns, powder, knives and other necessities for war. This does not sound like the actions of a man concerned about the Ojibwa. Three hundred of La Verendrye's Indians attacked a scouting party of three Ojibwa and Dakota Sioux, killing one. The others escaped to warn the main hunting party. The results of subsequent encounters are not recorded. Some Ojibwa believe that La Verendrye Company and the Jesuit are getting even for the La Pointe Ojibwa rejecting the missionaries from their Country. Father Messaiger of the La Verendrye party, weakened by privations and sickness, renounced his mission of evangelizing the savages and returned to Quebec, Quebec. Some speculated that he was fully aware of the potential future retaliation and that is the reason for his departure. Future actions of Father Nau, the Jesuit, confirmed their fears that the action is in retaliation for trading in La Verendrye and Company trading territory. The action from a La Pointe, Ojhibwa Country (Wisconsin) perspective, is that a Holy War is in progress. La Verendreye and his nephew, (II)-Christophee DuFrost (Dufros) (1708-1736) de La Jemerais (Jemeraye) returned to Montreal, Quebec.

(II)-Pierre Gauthier de Varennes et de La Verendrye (1685-1749) said that the Cree had advised him that the Ouachipouennes (Dakots Sioux who go underground) lived 300 leagues from the Lake of the Woods. They have eight villages. They raise corn, melons, pumpkins, beans, horses and cats. They live in dwellings constructed of wood and earth, built like French houses. Some have light hair, some red and some black. They speak a language like French, but not like English. They dress in ox-hide, use earthen pots and have large axes; all worn away by use. Their boats are made from animal skins, and they walk with their feet turned out. The Cree and Assiniboin have captured a number of their children. (II)-Christophee DuFrost (Dufros) (1708-1736) de La Jemerais (Jemeraye) took three captives of the tribe to Montreal, Quebec. These children said that they had horses and cats at home; just like the French. (II)-Pierre Gauthier de Varennes et de La Verendrye (1685-1749) reported the Monsoni, Cree and Assiniboin revealed their iron mines just five day journey from Fort St. Charles, where they manufacture bracelets. This excessive outflow of premises indicates the actions of a man who has made a grave tactical error and is attempting to secure a tenuous position.

(III)-Jean Baptiste Gaultier de La Verendrye (1713-1736) and (II)-Christopher DuFrost alias Dufros (1708-1736) de La Jemerais arrived at Barriere of the Esturgeons on the Winnipeg River. Fort Maurepas, later called Bas de La Riviere, and Fort Alexander or Winnipeg Lake Fort, are established in 1734, near the mouth of the Winnipeg River (Onessipi or Maurepas River). Jean Baptiste Gaultier remained in charge of the Fort until relieved by La Jemerais in 1735. This Fort is located 6 miles (10 km) north of Selkirk, Manitoba.

A great number of people in the North West died this winter of 1733-34 from smallpox.

Prairie Du Rocher (Rock Prairie) (Randolph Co., Illinois) is established this year about five miles east of old Fort Chartres.

1734

Rene Cartier (1685-1767), one of La Verendry's bourgeois or partners, traveled to Lake Winnipeg to construct a trading post- Fort Rouge (Fort Garry, Winnipeg). This would later be called Fort Gibralter, Fort Selkirk and Fort Douglas. This Fort, however would be abandoned in 1738.

Alexander Rene Dagneau Douville (1698-1773/74) is stationed Fort Frontenac (Kingston, Ontario) 1734/36, serving as an interpreter.

(III)-Louis Denis, Monsieur de LaRonde (1675-1741) established a ship building community at Point Aux Pins, near Sault Ste Marie, New France (Michigan/Ontario).

Pierre Gamelin (Maugra/dit Gauche) Jr. b-1697 and his brother, Michel Gamelin, were hiring for Michilimackinac, New France (Michigan) and Poste de la Riviere St. Joseph des Illinois (Pres de Windsor, Co. Lambton, Ontario).

Major de Gruis, a French officer, is stationed at Kaskaskia (Illinois), and is trying to obtain a copper mining permit on the Mississippi River system.

Pierre Hertel de Moncours (1687-1739), son Francois Joseph Hertel de Moncour (1642-1722), is the military commander at Green Bay, New France (Wisconsin), but was recalled back to New France because of his disputes with the fur traders.

Antoine Houle is a boatman hired to go to Sioux Fort.

(IV)-Marie Louis Picard, Metis, b-1734, died July 28, 1757, Cahokia, (Illinois) daughter (III)-Louis Picard b-1692 and Marie Anne Padoka des Ricaras, a Cahokia savage; married August 12, 1754, Cahokia, Illinois, (III)-Etienne Magnan.

Fort Detroit, New France (Michigan), birth, Elisabeth Reaume (1734-1748) daughter Hyacinthe Reaume (1704-1774) and Agathe Lacelle (1709-1778): married 1751 Joseph Poupard dit Lafleur.

Father L.F. Nau, the Jesuit, of Sault Saint Louis- three and one half leagues from Montreal, Quebec, is elated that four Coureurs des Bois are firmly dealt with, one being sent to the galleys; one fastened to the carcan; and two publicly whipped within the last two months. If these French were not allowed into New France, the missions would be full of Saints- he contends. He believes the officials in Canada are not looking for the Western Sea but for the Sea of Beaver. This is a direct criticism against the La Verendrye Company who is chartered to find the Western Sea.

The French contend that the holy Father, Nau, and his predecessors are encouraging the Iroquois, under their command, to be war like and strike out against their neighbor. This, he claims, is proof of their valor. He especially likes them to attack the Sac and Ojibwa Fox because the Iroquois take slaves for the Jesuits to convert and baptize. Father Nau said; it was this, (slavery) that the Devil himself unwillingly becomes the occasion of these wretched fugitives, by making it less difficult for them to embrace Christianity. Father Nau would not see the cause and effect, as the Sacs and Ojibwa Fox would burn Father Guignas at the stake in 1735. He assumed the Indians were incapable of intelligent thought. This is the prevailing attitude of the Jesuits, according to Father Vivier. They are Savages; hardly believed to be men. The smoking torch is in the Jesuit's hands, and their damnation is in his own hand writing. The Ojibwa Nation considered the Black Robe, especially the Jesuits, to be very evil people, and have avoided them most of last and this century.

Nicolas Joseph de Noyelles, sieur de Fleurimont (1694-1767) led the third French army against the Fox but had to retreat, as their Kickapoo allies would not support the French against their brothers- the Fox. Celoron at Mickinac, New France (Michigan) could muster no support among the Metis or Coureurs des Bois for des Noyelles.

To attempt to control the fur trade of the North West, Father Aulneau is ordered on a 1,200 league trip to the interior. He is to go to Lake Winnipeg and beyond, for some 400 leagues to the south west, and that should place him in California. Father Pe is stationed at Mimakinac, New France (Michigan), and Father Guignas is in the Illinois at this time. It is noteworthy that no official French expedition has reached Lake Winnipeg at this time, but the Coureurs des Bois and Metis have the run of the place and this would inflame the Jesuits.

The Hudson Bay men are amazed at the intimacy that united the Indian and Canadians. They could not, at this time, clearly tell the difference between the French Coureurs des Bois and the Metis. Indian Metis and French Coureurs des Bois now became those Canadians. Some attempted to be more specific of those Coureurs des Bois, using terms like Franco-Indian or Half-French, Naturalized Indian. Resentment against the Quebec French, however, is building among the Indian and Metis.

(III)-Jean Baptiste Gaultier Gautier de La Verendrye (1714-1736) built and commands Fort Maurepas, six miles north of Selkirk, Manitoba on the Red River of the North, until 1735. Marin Urtebise, alias Heurtebise (Hurtebise) (1697-1749) of Fort Pierre, reported that 300 Monsoni and Cree are ready to again start war against the Ojibwa and Dakota Sioux. La Verendrye contends that he warned them that it was alright to war against the Mascoutens Pouanes (Planes Sioux) but not the La Pointe Ojibwa.

La Verendrye intentionally used the name Mascoutens Pouanes, knowing full well they are Dakota Sioux. The obvious reason is to distort current activities. The Bourgeois of Fort Saint Charles begged for war against the La Pointe Ojibwa. (II)-Pierre Gauthier de Varennes et de La Verendrye (1685-1749) allowed his son, Jean Baptiste, to become a War Chief of the 600 Cree and Monsoni, in order to cement the alliance. The war party attacked the La Pointe Ojibwa and their allies, the Dakota Sioux. La Verendrye would later claim that his son did not actually go with the war party. It is becoming very clear that the Jesuit, and some French Bourgeois, have been distorting history to instigate war between the Dakota Sioux and their neighbors, the Ojibwa, Assinboin and Cree.

January: (III)-Jean Baptiste Gaultier Gautier de La Verendrye (1714-1736) is left by his father to live among the Cree who adopted him as one of their own.

January 28: Fort Detroit, New France (Michigan), death, Francois Fafard dit Delorme (1654-1734), farmer and interpreter and 1st wife Magdeline Marguerite Jobin, 2nd wife Barbe Loisel.

April: Sieur de la Verendrye is informed that the King of France will not incur any expense to aid in his discovery. La Verendrye obtained a map from Ochagaca that named the Rocky Mountains, Montagnes de Pierres Brilliantes or Mountains of Bright Stones, which was later changed to Shinning Mountains. It is noteworthy that the Spanish named them Sierra Nevadas in 1556. It is very doubtful if any of Verendtye's men actually saw the mountains themselves at this time.

Louis Cesaire Dagneau, sieur de Quindre (1704-1767), son of Michel Dagneaux and Marie Lamy dit Defond, was hiring men from 1735 to 1741, primarily for Michilimackinac, New France (Michigan) and Michipicoton, for the trading of furs.

Philippe Thomas Dagneau de la Saussave (1700-1758) is trading with the Chaouenons/Shawnees on the Ohio River.

Paul Louis Dazemard (d'Azemar), sieur de Lousignan born 1691 and died after 1746, is hiring voyagers for the west.

Father (I)-Jean Baptiste de St. Pe (Saint Pie) (1686-1770), a Jesuit, is stationed at Missilimakinac, New France (Mackinac, Michigan). Father (I)-Luc Francois Nau, (1703-1753), a Jesuit, is permanently stationed at the Iroquois Mission of Sault St. Louis 3 1/2 leagues S.W. Montreal, Quebec.

Father (I)-Jean Pierre Aulneau (1705-1736), a Jesuit, noted that Father Kino, a German Jesuit, in a map showing north of California is listed as Rio Colorado or Del Norte where lives the European like Indians.

A Fort located on Lac Rouge (Red Lake) is called Pointe des Bois and appears to be built by the Indians or Metis. Red Lake is an ancient rendezvous point for the Assiniboin, Cree, Dakota and Ojibwa. The Cree informed the Hudson Bay at York that the Canadians (Metis and Coureurs des Bois) had established a fort on the North bank of Lake Winnipeg.

Francois Marie Lemarchand de Lignery (about 1703-before February 1760) was with the Nicolas Joseph de Noyelles, sieur de Fleurimont (1694-1767), campaign against the Fox People.

Father Jean Pierre Aulneau, the Jesuit, arrived from Sault Saint Louis to spend the winter at Fort Saint Charles learning Cree. He wrote that the Cree acknowledged the immorality of the soul and would never think of renouncing their faith for fear of being stricken by God (Great Spirit) with death. The Indians did not believe God was a evil God who would cause hurt to his people. Aulneau begs God to enlighten the Cree about Hell and touch their hearts. This is the party line, and may not reflect Father Aulneau's personal beliefs. Hell and damnation is the Jesuit strategy to introduce fear into the Natives in an attempt to make them dependent on the Jesuit for the forgiveness of sin. The Native had no concept of hell and sin, and the Jesuit, therefore, had to create sin so that their service to forgive sin would be in demand. He thinks that the Cree are not as numerous as the Dakota Sioux in this region.

Fort Detroit, New France (Michigan), at this time, is a French Canadian settlement of 70 families. They produced 1,300 to 1,400 bushels wheat, and some went for export.

Father Guignas is in Dakota Sioux country, unaware that Father L.F. Nau of Sault Saint Louis, near Montreal, Quebec, is agitating the Iroquois to attack the Sac and Ojibwa Fox in his back yard and that it would lead to his death next year.

Father Jean Pierre Aulneau is planning to be some four hundred leagues north of Guignas at Lake of the Woods by next year. The Reverend Father de Lauzon is the Superior General.

Thomas Maclish, Chief Factor at Albany, James Bay, received English Brandy and a bottle of tincture (iodine) to color a pint to look like French brandy. Later, molasses would be used, which also gave the brew a touch of sweetness. On Christmas day the newly rebuilt Moose Factory is ravaged by fire. Factor Richard Staunton said that drunkenness and debauchery had caused the misfortune which began in the cookhouse. He contends that vice and ignorance predominated to a monstrous degree of wickedness. He reported that the Indians brought 12 Indian women into the Post and thereby gained influence over the English who learned much villainy. It is noteworthy that the Hudson Bay's Policy was to ignore any Indian liaisons and subsequent offspring. The inevitable mixed blood children will not be recorded for the next sixty years.

The burning of H.B.C.'s Moose Factory is attributed to drunkenness and debauchery.

(III)-Jean Baptiste Gaultier Gautier de La Verendrye (1714-1736) spent the winter of 1735-1736 at Fort Saint Charles.

The first vessel constructed on Lake Superior is built at Point Aux Pins, north of Sault Ste Marie New France (Michigan/Ontario), for Louis Denis, Sieur De La Ronde. It was a 25 ton, rigged with two sails.

Fort Cakokia (Ste-Famille) (Cahokia, Co. St. Clair, Illinois) on the Mississippi River, maintained marriage records (1735-1839) and death records (1784-1794).

A trading post is built at Prairie de Chein by the French, but some believe that this was an old settled town at this time.

Rene Bourassa (born 1688 of Michilimackinac, New France (Michigan)), whose daughter Charlotte married Charles Langlade- a Metis and the first 'alleged' settler in Wisconsin, is traveling the Lake of the Woods. This, however, is a most ridiculous claim. Rene is married to a female (Dakota) Sioux Slave who saved his life and the lives of his hired men when the avenging alliance band of Ojibwa and Sioux wanted to kill the party. It is noteworthy that women play a significant influence in the death or freedom of captured slaves. It has been contended that the Sioux Slave said that (II)-Pierre Gauthier de Varennes et de La Verendrye's (1685-1749) sons and Father Aulneau's party is on the Lake of the Woods. The war party attacked Fort Saint Charles but it is deserted, and the war party searched for the hiding La Verendrye party.

Pierre Girard (4th generation of guides) suggests, "The French were killed on Massacre Island on Lake of the Woods, not far from Fort St. Charles. The priest and the body of Le Verendry fils (son) were buried at Fort St. Charles on the Lake of the Woods. Girard's great uncle was present. Pierre Girard, Anishinable and French (also English, Menominee, Huron, Dutch and Norsk)." Pierre's father says, "It was the (Dakota) Sioux who killed the French, not the Ojibwa. The (Siouian) Assinibois and (Dakota) Sioux were enemies. La Verendry was trading weapons to the (Siouian) Assinibois who were attacking the (Dakota) Sioux. The (Dakota) Sioux massacred the French in retaliation."

Jacques Legardeur, sieur de St Pierre (1701-1755), is still commander at Lake Pepin (Fort Beauharnois) with Father Guignas. (II)-Pierre Gauthier de Varennes et de La Verendrye (1685-1749) tries to say it is because the party is trading ammunition to other tribes in the area and not the (Dakota) Sioux. This is absurd, as the attacking band consisted of Ojibwa (see above that makes more sense) from Post of Monsieur de la Ronde, La Pointe; Prairie Sioux of the Post of Jacques LeGardeur, Monsieur de Saint Pierre Fort Beauharnois on Lake Pepin; and Lake Sioux who had also received ammunition from the French.

The authorities prompted by the Jesuits suggest that (II)-Pierre Gaultier de Varness et de La Verendrye (1685-1749) is more engaged in fur trade than exploration, which is a kindly way of saying he is engaged in intrigue. It is also said that he has been in the field for nearly six years and has yet to reach Lake Winnipeg. He became a liability to the French, and a way must be found to effectively replace him without losing the Native's alliance. (II)-Pierre Gauthier de Varennes et de La Verendrye (1685-1749) temporarily retains his lease for three years but is only allowed to sub lease to other merchants, provided he doesn't engage in trading. It is apparent that the authorities do not believe that (II)-Pierre La Verendrye and associates are not behind the Cree and Ojibwa-Sioux wars.

Jacques LeGardeur, Monsieur of Saint Pierre, is in charge of the Sioux Post at Lake Pepin on the Mississippi (near Lake City, Wabasha County, and Minnesota). He abandoned his Post when a Dakota Sioux arrived at Fort Beauharnois, Lake Pepin with the seal of Father Aulneau; or so he claimed. He probably had reason to believe the Ojibwa and Dakota Sioux had reason to end his existence. The authority's question concerning his departure tends to support this contention.

Rene Bourassa, born 1688, of Michilimackinac, New France (Michigan) and Eustache, with 12 men, are wintering at Vermilion River, east of Lake Namakan on the Grande Portage route, to trade with the Ojibwa from La Pointe, Ojibwa Country (Wisconsin) who are now in the area to the injury of Fort Saint Pierre. Sieur Dourer, a clerk of the La Verendrye Company, ventured to the Bourassa and Eustache Fort on the Vermilion River. This action supports the contention that the La Verendrye Company is behind the war actions of the Cree.

Pierre Paul Margane, Sieur de la Valtrie (born 1679), Commander Lake Nipigon, sent 30 men to Fort St. Charles as warriors against the La Pointe Ojibwa and Dakota Sioux. Chief La Colle (Monsoni) and Chief La Mikoubnne (Cree) are at Fort Saint Charles to plan vengeance against the La Pointe Ojibwa, or so claims La Verendrye.

Sieur Daniel Le Gras (born 1698) son Jean arrived Fort Saint Charles from Kaministikwia with two canoes of merchandise.
