Manitoba's capital city and the largest in the province, Winnipeg is situated at the confluence of the Assiniboine and Red Rivers. These rivers were important canoe routes for Aboriginal traders for decades. The first European's, namely the French, arrived in 1738 and built the first trading post. Later the British arrived under the Hudson's Bay Company banner.

Many French and British men married Aboriginal women and their off-spring who lived here, the Métis, where skilled hunters and traders.
