In my November 16 entry, I’ve written a little about Louis Riel and the Northwest Rebellion, and how he was hanged on November 16. Riel had managed to get an appeal on his death sentence, but apparently his eight “co-conspirators” did not.
I found a wonderful site that writes about the Northwest Rebellion, and so I highly recommend visiting Daniel Paul‘s page. His site covers the history of the First Nation Indians. Quite extensive, and well written!
