Author: Laroque, Emma
Title: Riel
Notes: Although the C.B.C. tv movie "Riel" is not a historical documentary, it does highlight the spirit of Louis Riel. However, in magnifiying Riel, the film neglects the Métis community. Laroque argues that the community, their economic pursuits, their religious concerns and culture were not well portrayed.
Subject: Riel, Louis - Biography
Métis - History - Saskatchewan
Northwest Rebellion, 1885 - Historiography
