Who is Louis Riel and his background
Louis Riel was born in Red River Settlement which is now Manitoba. He is the leader of the metis, and they were against the government.

why was he executed
Louis Riel was blamed for killing Thomas Scott, although that the people from the metis group forced him to do so. Louis admitted that he had such a wonderful life before he was getting executed.
Did he have his own right to defend himself?
No he did not have the right because no one was on his side everyone didn't believe, that he was forced to kill Thomas Scott, because the metis has forced louis riel, second reason is the judge did not want him to leave which means the trial was not fair.
we strongly think that Louis should of defend himself as much as he can , because the judge did not have enough evidence to prove that Louis Riel had murder Thomas Scott . however, they were many reasons for putting him on capital punishment, the main reason is he was blamed by metis for committing the crime, like the metis betrayed Louis Riel, but no one knows why.
