Example: Columbus was aboard La Gallega, the largest of the three vessels. Originally named for Galicia, the town in which she was built, she was known to her sailors as "Marigalante," literally "dirty Mary." Columbus rechristened her Santa María. The others were also known by nicknames: Santa Clara, was known as Niña ("little girl") a play on the name of her owner, Juan Niño; Pinta means "painted one."

During the winter of 1668, La Salle let some Iroquis stay on his land. They told him about two rivers called the Ohio and the Missisippi. They also told him that the rivers flowed to the sea. La Salle was excited by this story. He belived the rivers might flow all the way to the Pacific Ocean. At that time many explorers believed there was a waterway, called the Northwest Passage, which connected the Atlantic Ocean and the Pacific Ocean. They looked for this waterway because it would give them a fast route to China where they could trade furs and silk. The Iroquis agreed to lead La Salle to the great rivers. He had to raise money for an expidition. The Catholic Church asked him to join two missionaries who were going to travel along the Mississippi to convery the Native Americans to Christianity.
