Exploring the Great Lakes Fur Trade, Highlights at the Wisconsin Historical Society

Exploring the Great Lakes Fur Trade, Highlights at the Wisconsin Historical Society

Would have been an honour to have been invited to this event seeing I'm an original descendant of Hon. William McGillivray. I have only been broadcasting this on the internet since the beginning of the year. He had twin Metis sons that have grown up in Alberta, Saskatchewan & Manitoba & were never informed of their rich past. I have located he had bought a residence at 149 Broadway, in New York! Anybody send me pictures? Where can I find out who took over this place?

One of the Schooners that was sunk in the late summer of 1814 was the Nancy.

It was sunk at the mouth of the Nottawasaga River. I mention this because someone a few days ago was enquiring where the North West Company schooners were sunk. If they find it, I'd like to see it, for posterity sake or possibly to put at the McGillivray NorthWest Museum, should it ever be built. I will put more information how much the NorthWest Company contributed much more to the building of this nation. Hudson Bay Company did not participate as much as my ancestor, nor was he compensated enough for the country we so enjoy.

Another matter I want to point out to the ingrates at the Museum of Civilization who falsely portray our outstanding Metis community & First Nation people read this excerpt for yourself & tell me if your view changes on how you portray my ancestors.

I believe a film should be made about the truth of Canada.

As a direct descendant of Hon. William McGillivary, Chief Director of the NorthWest Company, I wish to have a video produced publishing the real truth of how much the NWCo contributed to the building of Canada. It was a fur-trading company but in the War of 1812 it contributed 150 members of the Corps of Voyageurs & 6 schooners of its own company to protect the Canadian borders along the Great Lakes. The Chief Director was a Lt. Col and his twin son, Joseph McGillivray (my ancestor) fought as a Lt. He is buried somewhere on Mont Royal & should be put in the family tomb of Simon McTavish, where Duncan McGillivray (William's brother) & 2 infant McGillivray children are buried. For 20 years the Lachine (National Historic Site) operated importing & exporting the trade of goods to Fort William. Fort William is where my maternal ancestor is buried at Mountain view Cemetery at Thunder Bay. Fort William every year had an important meeting called the Great Rendezvous July 7 to 10th to renew trade relations. Montreal canoes had to portage 26 times to get there. From there smaller brigades of canoes where used to get the goods to the prairies. On June 19, 1816 the so-called Battle of Seven Oaks left 22 settlers of Lord Selkirk's men dead. McGillivray was charged for inciting this massacre but was never charged.  Often NWC Metis & traders would feed & take care of HBC men who had been warned by Simon McGillivray in England not to come to the prairies but for 3 years despite  hunger & promises of good housing & tools they came to try settling the Red River area. Selkirk had imposed a Pemican Tax to stop the flow of buffalo meat which was badly needed to feed everyone in the region. Thus it was called the Pemican War. It only lasted 15 minutes but this what was needed for Selkirk to have HBC promoted. They were also in dire straits with the Bank of England & easily could have been the ones who had gone under at the time of the amalgamation of 1821. This is part of the story I would like to get out. Canada paints my ancestor as greedy but in fact had a generous heart towards Canada. I therefore consider him the Father of Canada & Susan his Metis Wife as the the First Lady.

Northwest Passage


North West Passage was discovered by explorers of the North West Company! McGillivray's map is at Toronto McGill University. I want this back.
Detroit was taken by the NWC.
