Louis de Buade Frontenac (1622-1698) was the governor general of New France in the years when the French courted the First Nations with some success.
This led to The Great Peace of Montreal (La Grande paix de Montréal), a peace treaty between New France and 40 First Nations of North America. It was signed on August 4, 1701, by Louis-Hector de Callière, governor of New France, and 13 hundred representatives of 40 aboriginal nations.
