Miller develops two themes in his book: the first is the reasons that two peoples of different backgrounds have for interacting; and the second is that indigenous peoples have been active agents of commercial, diplomatic, and military relations with Euro-Canadians. Chapter 10 is titled "The Northwest Rebellion of 1885." Miller points out that a proper understanding of the resistance requires careful consideration of at least three distinct elements: the Indians, the Métis communities of the Saskatchewan, and Louis Riel. Miller explains how these three elements came together to cause the 1885 Resistance.
