2022-2023 Virtual Museum of Manitoba - Voyage of the Nonsuch

Application Closed

2022-2023 Virtual Museum of Manitoba – Voyage of the Nonsuch
The “Nonsuch” was the ketch that sailed into Hudson Bay in 1668-1669, under Zachariah Gillam, in the first trading voyage for what was to become the Hudson’s Bay Company two years later.

Originally built as a merchant ship in 1650, and later the Royal Navy ketch HMS Nonsuch, the vessel was sold to Sir William Warren in 1667. The name means “none such”, i.e. “unequalled”. The ship was at the time considered smaller than many others but was specifically selected because of her small size so that when she arrived in Hudson Bay and James Bay she could be sailed up-river and taken out of water so the thick ice of the bay wouldn’t crush her.

Join us for a virtual adventure highlighting the Manitoba Museum’s largest artifact, the Nonsuch (replica). An introductory presentation will highlight the historical significance of this treasure, followed by a live and interactive virtual tour of the Nonsuch trading ship.

Curriculum links – Social Studies:
-Oral tradition as an important way to learn history.
-Contributions of diverse ethnic and cultural communities to the history of western Canada
-Stories of European explorers and traders in their search for new lands or the Northwest Passage.
-European countries that established colonial empires and locate on a world map their areas of colonization.
-First Peoples’ stories of their pre-contact and early contact with Europeans.
-Impact of interactions between First Peoples and European explorers, colonists, and missionaries.
-Factors that led to the development and expansion of the fur trade into the west and north of Canada.
-Global factors that influenced the fur trade in Canada.
-Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC) & The Western Fur Trade
