HIS30S, First Nations Bibliography, Due Feb. 23

Please read the assignment page in full (below). Choose ONE of the possible First Nations groups, and research how they were involved in and affected by the fur trade.

Instead of writing a report, you’re submitting an annotated bibliography with four good sources. An annotation describes and evaluates a source, and summarizes how it helps answer your research question. Please see the assignment page for a sample (below).

You will have one class period on February 22nd to work on this, but you will need to do a large portion of the work on your own time.
