The Red River Expedition at Kakabeka Falls

From Canoes: A Natural History in North America by Mark Neuzil and Norman Sims

  • This painting was completed seven years after the Red River Rebellion was put down by British officer Garnet Wolseley. Louis Riel, leader of the Metis provisional government, successfully negotiated the colony’s entrance into the Canadian Confederation as Manitoba, but he was forced to flee to the U.S. by Wolseley’s soldiers.
