Author: Payment, Diane
Title: Monsieur Batoche
Notes: François Xavier Letendre, or Batoche as he was called, was a farmer, trader and an example of a successful Métis. Payment discusses the causes of the Resistance inasmuch as they involved and affected the Batoche bourgeoisie, who viewed it more pragmatically than Riel or Dumont. Letendre did not support the armed uprising, which he viewed as futile and self destructive.
