Title: The Cree Rebellion of 1884 or Sidelights on Indian Conditions Subsequent to 1876
Notes: This rebellion or strike, as Innes prefers to call it, was one of the issues which eventually culminated in the Riel Resistance of 1885. Innes points out that the Treaty system, reserves and the destruction of the Indian way of life led to great dissatisfaction. But it was hunger and the government's failure to alleviate these problems that forced the Indians to join the Resistance. Incidents of the Resistance as recorded by the Saskatchewan Herald and some of the participants are also included.
