Transcript of The Red River Resistance

Historical Perspective
In conclusion the Red River Resistance changed a lot of things and changed what Canada would be today by making Manitoba a province. The Red River Resistance was also definitely one of the main causes of the creation of Canada, because through the Red River Resistance the Manitoba act was passed so Manitoba became a province and the Métis got a lot of what they wanted. We hope you've learned a lot more than you already knew about the Red River Resistance and how Canada came to be. Thank you for listening to our seminar. We hope you have a nice lyfe :)
Historical Significance
The Red River Resistance
Some of the effects/consequences that happened because of the Red River Resistance were that:
Manitoba became a province of Canada
Louis Riel fled to Montana, in the United States to escape English men who were trying to kill him
Thomas Scott was executed by the Provisional government controlled by the Métis
The Métis came up with a list of rights
The Canadian Parliament passed the Manitoba act
Louis Riel was exiled from Canada
Louis Riel was executed
A lot has changed over the years.

Today, Manitoba has the 2nd largest Métis population (6.7 % of Manitoba), next to the Northwest Territories (8%). But according to the metropolitan census, Winnipeg has the largest Métis population (6.5%)

In addition, the language has significantly changed over time. For example, today, French is no longer the mother tongue of Manitoba. Instead, English is the main tongue and French is the third most popular language, next to German.

Finally, instead of Red River Valley, it is now called Winnipeg

The Red River Rebellion
The cause of the Red River resistance was that the Hudson bay company sold Rupert's land to the Canadian government that they thought was theirs but was occupied by the Métis so the Métis had their land stolen from them and sold to the canadian government.

Welcome to our seminar on the Red River Resistance. In this presentation, we will explain the Historical Significance, Cause & Consequences, Continuity & Changes, and Historical Perspective of this event. We hope you will enjoy our presentation.
1869-70 The Red River Resistance - the first conflict after Canada's confederation
November 1869, Louis Riel - a Métis politician, appeared as a spokesperson for the Métis tribe and the commander for the militants who wanted protect their colony from being attacked
December 1st, 1869 - The Hudson's Bay Company sold Rupert's Land (the settlement of many Métis inhabitants) to the Canadian government
December 7th, 1869 - Thomas Scott - a Canadian Government employed surveyer, was sent to negotiate with Louis Riel. He was then captured by Louis Riel and his men
1870 - The legislative agreed to allow the Manitoba Act pass and the Red River colony was then able to enter confederation as Manitoba
Louis Riel was hung for treason on November 16th, 1885 at Regina, Manitoba
Overall, the Red River Resistance brings historical significance to Canada, because it raises awareness about civil rights. Louis Riel fought for the Métis Tribe's rights and refused to give up their land. Also, this conflict helped Canada to become what it is today, and brought Manitoba into confederation.

Today, Manitoba still remains as Manitoba, and continues to be one of the most populated areas of the Métis tribe.

Not much has continued from this rebellion, ever since the Manitoba Act was passed.

for listening!
Let's take a trip to...
The beginning of...
aka Manitoba, Canada
Red River Colony
The Canadian Confederation
Because of past history of the Métis and the Anglo's it was predictable that they would not be friendly with each other.
It was their land which had for generations and they are not willing to give it up for free.
Of course there were reasons for the doings of both oppositions. It was illogical for the two oppositions to act without any purpose. Both parties wanted to achieve their desired goal. However, because of their mutual hatred from the past, it was improbable for them to negotiate at the time. Historical Perspective on the other hand, allows us to see the perspective of both these groups and their reason for their actions.
The Canadian Confederation want's to unite the provinces together to make a unified country.
They had already bought the Rupert's land. If they couldn't get it they would have wasted 1.5 million dollars for nothing.
P.S Don't be bored.
