QUESTION 3: Were First Nations people treated equally after the war?
QUESTION 4: If there were any technologies used during the war, are they used nowadays?
QUESTION 5: how has the war changed the way first nations been seen today
Is the way the war was caused similar to how wars are caused today?
The way the war was caused is similar to how wars are caused today because, the cause of the war was because the métis/First Nations people were unhappy with the way they were treated by the Canadian government. Like, not accepting their law petitions, taking their land and changing their culture, so the First Nations of red river, rebelled. Also, the First Nations were not aloud into the government and all the hired surveyors to chose land, were all white. It is similar to how wars are caused today because, a rebellion was started due to racial discrimination because the settlers/white male we “higher than them” and First Nations people according to the Indian act, were not perceived as a “person”. The Palestinian and Israeli war cause is similar, because the Israel did not want to share land with them so they created separation and didn't want to share land with the Palestinians. In conclusion, the way the war was caused is similar to how wars are caused today because many wars were caused of the same racial discrimination reasons.
Were First Nations people treated equally after the war?
No, not directly after the war were the First Nations people treated equally, because after the war, Riel was arrested, and the whole rebellion fell apart and they had to live under Canadian government again. Also, later after the war the Canadian government created “Residential Schools” where First Nations children/métis were forced to attend a school to learn how to be like the British, forced to speak English and throw away their known culture and tradition. Residential schools were closed in 1996, which is pretty recent. In conclusion, First Nations people were not treated equally after the war, the discrimination actually got worst.
If there were any technologies used during the war, are they used nowadays?
A lot of the technologies that were used in “The Red River Rebellion” aren’t used today some of the only are used now for example they still use trains to transport goods and people also still use horse but now horses are trained better because of new methods that humans would come up with and that have taught them to be more obedient and not so wild.

What ware tactics were used back then that is also used today?
War tactics used back then that are also used today are, the leader of a war group appointing a general/head of an army to instruct/handle the war things. Example; Louis Riel (the leader of the red river rebellion) appointed Gabriel Dummont as the “general” to be the head of the war battles. The style of battle Dummont uses is called “Guerrilla warfare” or “guerrilla tactics”. It was very effective for the red river rebellion because it was a way to ambush enemy's by surprise, especially since they were low in soldiers.
how has the war changed the way first nations been seen today
Yes the way that the first nations are seen today is drastically different back then they used to think that the first nations were not on the same level as the Canadians that is why the “Indian act” was made to try to give the first nations the illusion of freedom but in reality it did the opposite of that and gave the Canadians more power over the reserves. Over time the first nations have been given more freedom because the Canadian government has realized their mistake and tried to do some right even though the “Indian act” hasn’t been abolished it has been changed in a drastic way to respect the First nations and their culture
How has the "Red River Rebellion" affected our lives today.
