Author: Morton, Arthur Silver
Title: The half-breed rising on the South Saskatchewan, 1885. 29 July 1926.
Description: 8 pages.
Notes: In 1927 the University hired Cameron to gather material dealing with the early days of settlement. Cameron's chief interest was in the Métis and Native people. Much of his information came from former servants of the Hudson's Bay Company. Cameron wrote "The War Trail of Big Bear," an account of his experiences during the Frog Lake incident of 1885.
This story was told to W. B. Cameron on 29 July 1926, by two of the participants, Patrice Fleury and Charles Laviolette.
