Abstract (in English)

The expansion of the fur trade into the northern interior of Canada had an enormous impact on the native people, influencing both their material culture and their way of life. The adoption of the log house was a direct result of the native people's growings involvement in the changing economy, the introduction of new material goods, and the examples of log construction provided by the Euro-Canadian traders.
