They did not flee, they held their ground, putting Canada into the position of purging the land of Metis and other people included in their purchase of Ruperts Land. Canada choose to blame just the leaders who fled to the United States as refugees.

Who led the Metis in the Red River Rebellion of 1870 and the Northwest Rebellion of 1885?

Louis Riel was the most vocal leader or spokesman, though there were other leaders in both rebellions.


Do you have any time lines of the Red River Rebellion?

The Red River Rebellion or "Red River Resistance" are the names given to the events surrounding the actions of a provisional government established by Metis leader Louis Riel in 1869 at the Red River Settlement in what is now the Canadian province of Manitoba.


How much percent of the Red River Rebellion were Europeans?

In 1870, shortly after the end of the Red River Rebellion, a census was taken which showed that the population breakdown of the Red River Settlement was: 5,757 French-speaking Metis, 4,083 English-speaking Halfbreeds, 1,565 European caucasians (overwhelmingly English-speaking), and 558 Indians, for a total population of 11,963. The territory (Rupert's Land) which included Red River was still a British possession. Canada had become an independent nation a few years earlier when, in 1867, the British government passed the British North America Act. Canada wanted to acquire Rupert's Land from Britain, and Britain had agreed to this in principle. Negotiations were still underway, however, as to the finer details of the transfer, when the Red River Rebellion began in the fall of 1869. Even those who were part of the rebellion (overwhelmingly Metis) claimed to be loyal to the Crown. The main issues in the so-called rebellion were the rights of the Metis (and, to a lesser extent, the Halfbreeds), and the terms upon which Rupert's Land, and specifically the Red River Settlement, would become part of Canada. There were very few Europeans who were supporters of the rebellion, no more than a handful and certainly less than one percent of the population. Although some were long-standing members of the Red River community who sympathized with the Metis, most of the Europeans supporting the rebellion were Fenians. (So, your next homework assignment is to tell us, "Who were the Fenians and why did they support the Red River Rebellion?")

Who were the Metis leaders?

Louis Riel became the Metis leader in 1869 with his speech at Saint Boniface Cathedral and the Red Riiver Rebellion.


Was the Metis action led by Louis Riel in 1869 1870 a true rebellion?

Not at all. They were not under Canadian rule, they had not even been invited into the Confederation. Canada calls it a rebellion because they claimed to have purchased the Metis when they bought Ruperts Land. Of course they never asked the Metis or anyone living in Ruperts Land, so no surprise that some decided they wanted to talk about it. In 1869 the people of Western Canada were only resisting a takeover, an occupation. You cannot rebel if you are not part of the country to begin with.
