Hudson Bay Company and the Northwest Passage
In the 17th century, the white confederation of Europe commenced their quest to find the Northwest Passage. They had only one purpose for finding the Northwest Passage. That was to prevent the Algonquin's from forcing their way back in to Siberia. If the Algonquin's had in fact reached Siberia again it meant the Manchurians would support them militarily. The white Russians had forced their way to the east of Siberia and discovered Alaska. They also forced the Manchurians to commence an all out war to bring China back under their control and strengthen the Great Wall. They defeated China in 1644 and the Qing Dynasty eventually evolved into the Soviet Union. The Qing Dynasty probably has a direct clan relationship with Vietnam. You can easily recognize the similarities in the names. Manchuria also conquered Korea shortly before their conquest of China. They conquered Korea in 1636.
Russia discovered Alaska in 1648. Semyon Dezhnev sailed from Siberia to Alaska and then his accounts were supposedly never forwarded to the central government of Russia. That leaves the door open for another likely scenario which may be the correct one. Manchuria was on the offensive during that time period as we know. After the Manchurian conquest of China, Manchurian leaders, who were bothered greatly by the whites to their northwest who were invading eastern Asia, sent their ships to Alaska and British Columbia after 1648 and continued on without obstruction until 1725. In 1725, Tsar Peter I of Russia sent out an expedition to Alaska. On July 15, 1741, Alexei Chirikov sighted Prince of Wales Island which is located in southeast Alaska, about 40 miles north of the Queen Charlotte Islands which are now known as the Haida Gwaii Islands.
Now, if you are acquainted with Alaska you may be thinking why did Russia land on Prince of Wales Island when the entire Aleutian Islands and the west coast of Alaska were in front of them? Something led to Russia avoiding the west of Alaska. If you look on a good map of the Sea of Okhotsk, you will realize Manchuria is situated along the western shores of the Sea of Okhotsk. All that was necessay for Manchuria to sail to North America, was following the western shores of the Sea of Okhotsk along Sakhalin Island to just north of the Japanese island of Hokkaido. They then only had to follow the Russian Islands to the island of Kamchatka. About midway up the island of Kamchatka, the Aleutian Islands commence to the east. The first of the Aleutian Islands is 111 miles east of Kamchatka. The Aleutian Islands lead all the way to mainland Alaska and the islands off the coast of Alaska and British Columbia.
You now know why the white confederation of Europe was so desperate to find the Northwest Passage. They knew the Mongols, who are Algonquin's, invaded Asia then Europe from some location far to the east of Europe. Manchurian involvement possibly included conflict with the Philippines. Many Chinese people fled to Taiwan after Manchuria conqurered China in 1644. Taiwan is less than 230 miles from the Philippines. And the whites had Asian allies in the Philippines and probably Taiwan. Both the Chinese of Taiwan and the Philippines, probably used the same route to North America as the Manchurians, or they used Spanish routes.
With three different peoples competing for control of western North America, the rivalry eventually became more organized as decades passed. Manchuria likely confined themselves to Alaska and British Columbia, while the white Russians and their Asian allies (the Chinese of Taiwan and the Philippines), kept mainly to the region between California and Washington States, with certain areas in Alaska and British Columbia also under their control. By the early 18th century, the white confederation of Europe intensified their involvement in finding the Northwest Passage.
Hudson Bay Company
In 1670, England formed Hudson Bay Company. White historians claim it was the fur trade which led to the establishment of Hudson Bay Company. That is incorrect. It was the Northwest Passage which led to the establishment of Hudson Bay Company. After learning from the Ojibway's that the northwest border of their vast country was located at a mountain ridge between Lake Superior and the frozen bay, the whites got the message. They knew the frozen bay was the Arctic Ocean. They claim it was Hudson Bay but Hudson Bay does not stay frozen the entire year. The northwest border of the vast Ojibway Nation at the time, was the Great Slave Lake region. To the south are the Caribou Mountains and Birch Mountains even further south. To the west are the MacKenzie Mountains, Rocky Mountains in British Columbia, and the Selwyn Mountains. All are in the Great Slave Lake region. Most likely the mountain ridge is the Rocky Mountains from northeast British Columbia to the southern Northwest Territories, with the Selwyn extension of the Rocky Mountains the likely location of the northwest part of the vast Ojibway Nation.
An Asian people lived to the north. According to Samuel Hearne, the Ojibway's (Chipewyan) led by ogima Matonabbe, became very uneasy after learning about a camp of the foreign Asian people near what is now Kuglugtuk, Nunavut. The site of the July 17, 1771 Bloody Falls Massacre, is at 67 degrees north and 115 degrees west. It is near that part of the Arctic Ocean known as the Beaufort Sea. Supposedly ogima Matonabbe was helping the whites find the Northwest Passage. Since it was July 17 we know something is definitely out of place. White ships were sailing the ice free Hudson Bay (Fox Basin) through a pass that leads to the Gulf of Boothia. From the Gulf of Boothia, they took a short route to the ice free Beaufort Sea. Sailing further south then west, they reached the area where the Bloody Falls Massacre happened. The Ojibway's knew what the whites were doing and killed 20 of them. They kept Samuel Hearne however.
In 1668, Ruperts House commenced the establishments of trading posts (forts according to some sources) along James Bay and Hudson Bay. Moose Factory (the official trading house) next in 1673. Fort Albany in 1679. Fort Severn in 1689. York Factory in 1684. Fort Churchill was the last. It was built in 1717. The process was not peaceful. Ojibway soldiers battled the white invaders. Next in the plans of the white confederation were inland forts. It was not until 1774 when inland forts commenced. It was obviously one of the leading causes of the Revolutionary War.
Samuel Hearne went on three expeditions to the Arctic Ocean towards Alaska. As to which expedition he found the area where the Bloody Falls Massacre happened, they claim the third. However, that could have been an excuse meant to fool. After the Bloody Falls Massacre, ogima Matonabbe led Samuel Hearne to the west of Great Bear Lake then to the west of Great Slave Lake. Samuel Hearne obviously learned about the MacKenzie River. Samuel Hearne may have journeyed overland but other whites sailed and the Ojibway's knew about it. The whites became convinced the Northwest Passage had no overland route but that may be incorrect. In those times the waterways were larger. Baker Lake would have been the one lake the whites would have used if an overland route to the Arctic Ocean existed then. The white confederation knew the most vital location was the MacKinzie River. After learning about the Mackenzie River they commenced to planning their invasion into that area. They knew a foreign Asian people lived in that region and they also planned to play them.
Fort Cumberland (Saskatchewan 1774)
It was Samuel Hearne who established the second inland Hudson Bay Company trading post. It is known as Fort Cumberland. In 1773, Henley House was established. Henley House was 140 miles southwest of James Bay. Hudson Bay Company used the main river near Fort Albany to sail to the region where Henley House would stand. They then constructed Henley House. They did not like the land. Fort Cumberland was built very close to Cumberland Lake in what is now Saskatchewan, in 1774. These events helped ignite the Revolutionary War. Ojibway leaders knew the whites were expanding (that includes the white invasion into California) and reacted.
Another white fur trading company known as the North West Company commenced to establishing trading houses in what is now northern Alberta and the Northwest Territories, in the late 1780s. It is no coincidence they built them where they did. The North West Company was actually an offshoot of the Hudson Bay Company. The first were Fort Chipewyan (Alberta 1788), Fort Vermilion (Alberta 1788), Fort Edmonton (Alberta 1795), Fort Augustus (Alberta 1795), Lac La Biche (Alberta 1798), Rocky Mountain House (Alberta 1799), and Fort Liard (Northwest Territories 1800).
Though Fort Liard was built seventh, it was among the first to be planned. It's location was strategically the most important. It offered the Ojibway's easy access to the interior of Alaska. It was probably at the northwest part of the vast Ojibway Nation. It sits at the foothills of the Rocky Mountains (the Selwyn part of the Rocky Mountains) in the southwestern part of the Northwest Territories. It is 16 miles north of British Columbia. The Rocky Mountains are 20 miles to the west. Later, other forts were built at Fort Simpson (Northwest Territories 1803), Fort Dunvegan (Alberta 1805), Fort Good Hope (Northwest Territories 1804), and Fort Carlton (Saskatchewan 1810). Later on more forts were established in British Columbia. Fort Good Hope was built by the whites to protect their entrance to the MacKenzie River.
A line of defensive forts had been constructed but the whites knew they had to play the foreign Asian people and non Algonquian Indians. The whites may have offered land to Asians in eastern Asia, if they migrated to Alaska and further east to the Northwest Territories including what is now Nunavut. At the time the Ojibway's (the Chipewyan) were living in the interior of what is now Nunavut. They depended on the caribou and fish for food. They were living in the interior of Nunavut up to the 1950s when they were forced to relocate to the Hudson Bay coastal settlements.
From the forts in the northwest, the white confederation armed the foreign Asian people and non Algonquian Indians with their weapons. If any Manchurian involvement in the Alaska region did actually take place, there was now the whites from the east supporting the whites and their Asian allies in the west. The Hudson Bay Company and other white trading companies, commenced to establish forts in the Pacific Northwest including British Columbia, California, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington in the early and mid 19th century. It caused the Ojibway's who ruled that land great unrest. In the late 18th century, the white confederation commenced to invade California. They became especially attracted to central and northern California. That did not go well with the Ojibway's.
According to an 1856 Hudson Bay Company account of the number of their trading houses (forts to some whites) and the Indian population where the hbc forts were located, 154 trading houses were scattered from Quebec to British Columbia, and also Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington. British Columbia had the largest Indian population surprisingly. Southern Alberta and southern Saskatchewan also had a large Indian population. And the Northwest Territories also had a large Indian population. Hudson Bay Company organized their trading houses into districts. I will include only those west of Quebec. They are the following districts:

New Caledonia District - Forts or Trading Houses Stuart Lake, McLeod's Lake, Fraser's Lake, Alexandria, George, Babines, Conolly's Lake, and Hawaii (Honolulu). It was located primarily in central British Columbia but included Hawaii and obviously New Caledonia (it is an island about 755 miles northeast of Australia), and Fiji, French Polynesia, Guam, New Zealand, Niue, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tokelau, Vanuatu, Wallis and Futuna, West Papua (it's a part of Indonesia and was known up to 2007 as West Irian Jaya), and Australia and many other islands in the Pacific. The whites followed the Ojibway's to those islands which may have included the Philippines also. Population estimate 12,000.
Fort Ross (Russia) - This Russian fort was located 64 miles north of what is now San Francisco. Russia established this fort in 1812. It was the only fort or trading house Russia had in California. It was actually the Russian-American Company which established Fort Ross. Supposedly the whites (Spain) became very concerned about the Russians visiting California in the 18th century. It supposedly led Spain to commence establishing missions in California. It is strong evidence of the Manchurians being established in California long before the whites commenced their invasion.
Now, if you research the Hudson Bay Company's accounts of their districts, you'll learn that they in fact had a district named New Caledonia. The whites have committed horrific crimes out of lust for Greed for Land. During the 18th century, Manchuria probably supported the prophecy driven Ojibway's, by supplying them with ships and other necessities, especially after the whites invaded California.
