The Original SupplyChain - Indigenous Box

The Original SupplyChain

Did you know that my people were the original supply chain network of this continent? The Indigenous peoples of this continent were responsible for the operation of a vast trading network that spanned turtle island. I’m not talking about just furs though! My people, the Cree people, traded knives, obsidian, metal, fabric, fresh meat, European wares and more. I once read a story about the “Iron Confederacy”, the story of a trade alliance between the Metis and Saulteaux people who sourced and traded much more than furs. This trade alliance was key to the survival of these nations. So trade has always been a part of our way of life and an integral part of our story on the prairies.
