Storyboard Text

  • You have caused too much chaos because of that stupid proclamation! You are going to trial!
  • Oh no! I thought my plan would go smoothly
  • Semple
  • I'm the best governor! I'm not going to listen to Roberston. Why should I? I'm just going to attack the Métis and NWC, and show them who's boss.
  • Pemmican
  • Pemmican
  • Alright, make sure to take all of the boxes guys!
  • Grant
  • Métis
  • Afterward, Cameron convinces the colonists to go to Fort William. He then finally arrests Macdonell and takes him for trial at Fort William. By the summer's end, the colonists return to the Red River under the command of Colin Robertson, an HBC trader.
  • I guess I wasn't as mighty as I thought...
  • Métis
  • Robertson is different from Macdonell in that he makes peace with the Métis and NWC. A new governor arrives and his name is Robert Semple. As arrogant as he is, Semple does not listen to Robertson and conflicts with the Métis and NWC. Semple wants to show his power and attacks Fort Gibraltar. Undoubtedly, the NWC and Métis see this belligerent intention as to declare war on them.
  • This is a great trade guys! Win-win situation for all of us!
  • You get land and we get tobacco? What a terrible trade!
  • Ojibwa
  • Angered by this attack, a man named Cuthbert Grant leads a group of Métis and raids HBC boats. They take a supply of pemmican; a reasonable compensation for Macdonell's proclamation.
  • Defendant
  • London Court
  • Semple, being arrogant and bigoted, regards the Métis as inferior. He decides that the only way they will understand him is by violence. He and twenty-eight other men confront a group of Métis who are approaching their settlement. The Métis split into two groups and essentially surround Semple and his men. Within minutes, Semple and twenty of his men die along with one Métis. This skirmish is called the Battle of Seven Oaks.
  • A year after, Selkirk ignorantly makes a treaty with the Ojibwa and Cree nations, thinking they are all Métis. He gains possession of the Red River Valley and pays them one-hundred pounds of tobacco per year. He believes that he has settled the conflicts between the colonists and the Métis and NWC.
  • Unbeknownst to Selkirk, the HBC and NWC are still conflicted. When he returns to London later that year, he is confronted by many lawsuits because of the actions of his employees in the Red River. He battles the NWC for a few years and dies from exhaustion.
