The Red River Rebellion was the sequence of the events related to the 1869 establisment of the Provincial government by the Metis leaders Louis Riel in Manitoba. The Red River Rebellion started because the Metis were losing land. Mcdonald did not split up the land he would have less population seperated the land he would have a greater population. It was one of the first violent and failed attempts to get fair representation by those taken over by Canada when Canada purchased Rupert's land.
The Red River Rebellion. In 1869 a rebellion occurred involving Louis Riel and the Red River Métis as they wanted to retain the settlements occupants rights. Riel set up a provisional government to create negotiations with the settlers. The Manitoba Act was eventually created and protects many Aboriginals rights today.
The Northwest Rebellion of 1885, was caused by the CPR who took over the Natives land and slashed the their budget. The Métis fought with the NWMP in the first clash. The Métis last war, Louis Riel was captured, and Dumont got away to the United States. The war was fought in the west coast of Canada and was lost by the Métis. The Northwest Rebellion, Red River Rebellion, and the treaties were all connected to land. The government over time and took the natives land.
Red River Expedition, 1870. In an effort to assert Canadian government authority, then Colonel Garnet Wolseley trekked 1000 troops through the Canadian wilderness with the goal of confronting Louis Riel. As the army approached, Reil fled to the US, effectively bloodlessly ending the Red River Rebellion. The amazing accomplishment of moving so many troops through dense wilderness is part of what earned Wolseley's reputation for efficiency that was the genesis of the phrase "All Sir Garnet."
