Today we will learn…
• History Objective –
•
We will examine the
role the Mountain Men
(fur trappers) played in
exploring Utah & the
contributions they made.
Language Objective –
We will listen for
important information
to include in our
notes.
• Behavior Objective – Work ethic: Stay on-task
during the lesson and take good notes.
Around the time when…
• Dominguez and Escalante
are exploring Utah, a
trade is growing in
popularity and profitability
in the East.
• Many fur trappers were
exploring the interior of
the North America hunting
for more pelts.
Who were the Mountain Men?
• These fur trappers come
from a variety of
backgrounds.

–
–
–
–
English
French
Spanish
Indian
African Americans
Etc.
• As the animals they
hunted became more
scarce in the East, they
moved west into the
Rocky Mountains where
they become known as
Mountain Men.
Fur Trappers
• Some trappers were
traders, who bartered
with the Native
Americans for pelts.
• Others worked for trading
companies, like the
Hudson Bay Company.
• Still others were
independent trappers,
who sold their pelts at
rendezvous.
Surviving in the Wilderness
• About 3,000 men, and
a few women & kids,
went west to trap.
• They dressed like and
often lived with Native
American tribes.
• It was not an easy
life.
Caches
• The trappers would
tend their traps in the
fall, winter, and
spring.
• If they had too many
furs, they would bury
them in a cache.
• Cache Valley was a
popular place to
deposit furs &
supplies.
Cache
• This is a
reconstruction of a
cache at a
museum.
Rendezvous
• During a rendezvous
a trapper would sell
his goods and get
supplies for the
coming year.
• It was also a time to
cut loose and have
fun.
• One of these
rendezvous was held
in Cache Valley.
Trapper-Indian Conflicts
• Sometimes the trappers
would get along well with
Native tribes.
• Many spent the winter
with the local Indians, and
even married Indian
women.
• However, the trappers
were disturbing the
Natives way of life and
sometimes would attack
them and take their
supplies.
•Historians used to say that
the Mountain Men were a
positive influence in the west.
Now they take a more
balanced approach, noting
how they benefited the
colonies but hurt the Indians.
Reading for Important
Information

about several famous
mountain men who
worked or traveled
