Call #: Shortt AP5 .W3 v.2
Author: "C."
Title: The Riel Outbreak
Notes: In this sympathetic review of the causes of the Northwest Rebellion, 'C' concludes that "in resorting to rebellion, the Half-breeds are perhaps taking only necessary steps to secure their rights." 'C' describes the development of Métis communities in the Northwest Territories, Métis agitation for rights and titles to their lands, and the failure of Indian agents and other government agents who "represent that they have satisfied Half-Breed claims."
