Proud to be Canadian. A Power Point By: Rachelle && Isaac "I still say the history of Canada is in shoeboxes under people's beds." Joyce Beaton, social historian and publisher, Quoted in The Muskoka Advance 28 Jan 1990

The importance of history History is important to know about your Country because with out it, none of us could call ourselves Canadian. Canada claims to be a multicultural country, but by doing this Canada’s history and culture slowly fades away. Canada isn’t looking back on history. The country as a whole is forgetting what they have done in the past. That’s why Canada has no goals as a country except win the war in Afghanistan. They forgot that they could accomplish anything. A deep tradition in Canadian history was hockey. For this reason, many Canadians play hockey today. By remembering more traditions and history, Canada can advance, rather than lay back.

Canada claims to be a multicultural country, but by doing this Canada’s history and culture slowly fades away.

Canada isn’t looking back on history. The country as a whole is forgetting what they have done in the past. That’s why Canada has no goals as a country except win the war in Afghanistan. They forgot that they could accomplish anything.

A deep tradition in Canadian history was hockey. For this reason, many Canadians play hockey today. By remembering more traditions and history, Canada can advance, rather than lay back.

Canada’s History in a nutshell. (the First Nation) Long, long ago before European settlers came to Canada, there were already a thriving sort of people known as the Aboriginals and the Inuit. They had a very defined culture and way of life, until the settlers came and slowly forced them out of freedom The settlers primarily came from England and France. The English had a larger amount of territory but France’s new settlement (now known as Quebec) was doing well. Later on some refugees from the thirteen colonies (now known as the United States of America) also came to Canada and start new life. They were British as well.

Jacques Cartier, the beginning In France’s attempt to find the Northwest passage that would lead to a more efficient way to get goods from Asia they sent Cartier on a voyage. Instead Cartier voyage lead him to the Gaspe Peninsula off the coast of Quebec. Cartier met with the First Peoples which were the Iroquois. During the meeting Cartier tricked the Iroquois chief; Donnacona, into giving him his two sons. The next voyage Cartier came back with the sons, who showed him the St. Lawrence River. This lead to the settlement of Stadacona, which later became Quebec City.

Meeting of Cultures Europeans came later on in the 1600s, and found that North America was in fact, a prosperous place with numerous riches, mainly furs and fish. Many Europeans traded with the Aboriginals for their useful goods, such as furs. The Europeans traded their normal everyday objects, for high quality beaver furs; beaver furs could be used to make high quality felt, which the Europeans used for stylish hats. This practice between the Europeans and the Aboriginals was quite common, and soon they became regular trading partners.

Long story Short…. Throughout the years, although Canada was mainly a English and French based culture it is now quite diverse. Overall, Canada is mostly an English speaking country, with French being a minority language. There are some small First Nations dialect, and tongues from other refugees. Canada is more layed-back country. Instead of trying to spark up something creative, they just follow the crowd.

Why a shoebox? Why did Joyce Beaton say that Canada’s history is in a shoebox? Shoeboxes are small in size and can easily be forgotten; just like Canada’s views of history. It was influenced by a more modern trend of thought that include all the many cultures of the world Another reason why Joyce could of said shoebox may have been because she was metaphorically speaking with using the shoebox. If she was to be literal, she may have said something like this: “ From my observations it appears that the history of Canada isn’t getting enough gratitude as it should be and not to be forgotten/at the back of our minds.
