SASKATCHEWAN TOURIST ATTRACTIONS
Northwest Rebellion of the Métis & native Indians in 1885 resulted due to diverse grievances , unemployment & social issues. French Canadian trappers had intermarried with Cree and Saulteaux women, their offspring being called Métis. They worked for the North West Company and the Hudson's Bay Company until these companies merged causing mass unemployment amongst the Métis.
Batoche, on South Saskatchewan River, was the last battlefield in this Rebellion. The Batoche National Historic Site preserves several of the original buildings & a multi-media show is well worth watching. It was a decisive victory for the Government forces.
