The French relationship with the native peoples of New France and Acadia: R5-367/1984E-PDF
"When the first Breton and Norman fishermen, following the routes of earlier Norse, Spanish and Basque incursions, arrived in North America, they found it was an inhabited continent. Europeans had been preceded by peoples of many different linquistic and cultural groups, ranging in northeastern America from hunting band societies such as Montagnais and Micmacs to tribal horticultural societies such as Huron and Iroquois. The first extant document concerning this French penetration to 'another world' is dated 1504, but several decades earlier Newfoundland cod and North American furs had made their appearance in French ports, notably at Rouen. It was not long before Amerindians, or Indios as Christopher Columbus called them, would also make their appearance in French coastal towns and major cities. Contact had been made with a New World and with 'new men' whose existence had hitherto not been suspected."--Chapter 1, p. 1.
