Barter Banter

Hosted by: Vanier Museopark

By placing them in a real barter economy,Barter Banter allows students to understand and appreciate the relationships and interactions that took place between the First Peoples and the French settlers. By handling artifacts, students are introduced to the cultural relationships and trade that developed between peoples. Students are encouraged to stress the usefulness of these objects in order to entice the other people to negotiate an exchange.
