Native Society and Economy in Transition at The Forks, 1850-1900
This report focuses on the late 19th century at The Forks on two Aboriginal themes: Native Society and Economy of the Red River Settlement (1850-70), including Métis, Canadiens, Orkney, Scots, and Amerindian interactions, Red River settlement and Hudson’s Bay Company in the 1850s-1860s, and the Red River resistance of 1869-70. Native Society in Transition (1870-1900) includes discussion of the Amerindian people (Ojibwa, Salteaux and Cree) and the Indian Act and treaties, and the Métis in “New Manitoba”. Reproductions of 22 maps and photos of people and places of the era are also included.
