The Northwest Rebellion of 1885
This storyboard does not have a description.
Led by Louis Riel, the Metis people set up a government in Batoche, there they wrote up the Metis Bill of Rights.
We deserve these rights! We shall send this to the government of Canada.
Metis Bill of Rights
We will be outnumbered!
The government of Canada hasn't responded to our requests. I suggest we take up arms!
Many Metis respected Gabriel Dumont who supported Riel. This made the Metis want to join the uprising that Riel suggested.
If you say so.
I agree with Riel in this matter.
On March 26, 1885 the Metis fought a group of North West Mounted Police and defeated them, making them retreat.
Not long after the Battle of Duck Lake, a group of Cree people joined the resistance. They killed nine people and captured a police post at a place called Frog Lake on April 2, 1885.
In response to the uprisings, the Canadian government sent many soldiers west on the new railroad.
