Description

Louis Riel and the Creation of Modern Canada: Mythic Discourse and the Postcolonial State by professor of religion Jennifer Reid offers a framework for rethinking the geopolitical significance of the modern Canadian state, the historic role of Confederation in establishing the country's collective self-image, and the narrative space through which Riel's voice speaks to these issues. Politician, founder of Manitoba, and leader of the Métis, Louis Riel led two resistance movements against the Canadian government, Red River 1869 to 1870, and the North-West 1885, in defense of Métis and other minority rights.
