The colonists idea of expansion was important to make their land a bigger area. However when the french settled in to the ohio river valley it stopped expansion of britain which angered them and caused conflict. The british asked nicely for them to move out but the french were not intimidated

If your talking about when Britain was still in power of the Americans it was because of the french and Indian war.

The hope for gems and minerals was most likely the reason that the French and British made alliances with Native Americans in the early 1700s. The French and British hoped to enslave them if needed.
