Mountain men were most common in the North American Rocky Mountains from about 1810 through the 1880s (with a peak population in the early 1840s). Approximately 3,000 mountain men ranged the mountains between 1820 and 1840, the peak beaver-harvesting period. While there were many free trappers, most mountain men were employed by major fur companies. The life of a company man was almost militarized.

Confilcting Ideas of the Past in Canada He has been called a prophet, a traitor, a martyr, a visionary and a madman, but whatever one thinks of him, Louis Riel, remains one of the most controversial figures in Canadian history. Does this man who has continued to haunt Canadian history for more than a century after his execution, deserve all of those descriptions? After reading three different interpretations of the rebellions, it is still difficult to decide which is closer to the truth.
"We must cherish our inheritance. We must preserve our nationality for the youth of our future. The story should be written down to pass on." (Louis Riel, 1884). Louis Riel, a man of great nature and abiding love for his western Métis heritage, is proven to be one of the most revolutionary men looked upon in the chronicles of the Dominion of Canada.

I think that no sane man would think of such things. He had travelled between Ottawa and The United States as well as knowing the powers of Britain. For him to think that he would be able to train
In North America during the 19th century, European-Canadians begun encountering conflicts with the Aboriginals when they wanted to take over more land further west from their original settlement. In Saskatchewan, previously referred to as the Northwest Territories in the 1880s, the Aboriginals and Canadian government entered into treaties after much negotiation which permitted expansion to the west. These treaties opened the Northwest Territories for European-Canadian agricultural settlement, which
It is the cause for much distress on both the rebel and the side of the government of Canada. This tail includes different rebellions which intertwine together; the Red River Rebellion, and the North West Rebellion. The Red River rebellion itself dates back to 1869 and ended in 1870, while the North West Rebellion occurred in 1885; which was a quick and deadly revolution (New, 2002:826). The lead up to these historic event date back much earlier than 1869. Multiple events collided together resulting
