Storyboard Text

  • This is ridiculous! Why are the surveyors not laying out the land as we want it? We also need help to become successful farmers! What are we supposed to do without Bison?
  • Indeed, even we European immigrants are concerned with title and financial assistance from the government!
  • All that Prairie land. The potential for profit is HUGE!
  • Who cares about them?! We need to get the railroad out there - cut the funding to the "Indians". Deal swiftly with anyone who stands in our way?
  • What about the Metis and the Homesteaders?
  • you were right, Louis! They didn't ignore it! Hooray!
  • Welcome back, Louis Riel! Are you here to help us fight the government?
  • I certainly am! Jackson, let us write a Metis Bill of Rights. This time, our concerns will include Metis and non-Metis peoples. They won't be able to ignore it!
  • I, Lawrence Clarke have a plan. If Macdonald wants Riel to make trouble, and to bring the CPR to the prairies, I can act as a double agent! Through rumours and falsehoods, I can help increase tensions... if there is a rebellion, I'll be able to prosper selling land! I will take the new Metis petition to the government. When I return, I will let the Metis know that the government will be acting with force against them.. and maybe I will tell them that they plan to arrest Riel!
  • Oh No! Thanks to Clarke's information, I, Crozier went to prove to him I wasn't a coward by marching to meet the Metis force at Duck Lake. After some arguments, we shot 2 Metis negotiators. 37 of us we killed or wounded. I need to evacuate Fort Carlton... where are those reinforcements Dewdney send? I thought Clarke wrote them to hurry them along!
  • It is now your turn, to finish the story!
