Description In the 17th & 18th Centuries, laborers were called Voyageurs who worked transporting beaver pelts across water & land. In their voyages, they also ran into many other people including North American Indians, so it was very important for these men to carry with them a pouch of items for trade. In these bags they might carry such as cooking supplies, alcohol, beads, trinkets, ammunition, sewing supplies, and salt. Depending on the region where they worked these items would vary according to what locals wanted or needed.This one was found at Fort Vancouver National Historic Site during the summer event called The Encampment.
