Riel, regarded by some as a hero and visionary, by others as a madman and misguided religious zealot, fought for the rights of the Métis people and helped establish the province of Manitoba before escaping to the United States. Gabriel Dumont was a successful hunter and Métis chief, a pragmatist who may not have foreseen the impact on the Métis cause of bringing Riel home. Riel's execution in 1885 by the Canadian government still reverberates today. Some descriptions of violence. c2010.
