The 1885 Northwest Rebellion
For some strange reason the whites have strongly encouraged their historians to claim that a group of supposedly mixed bloods were responsible for the 1885 Northwest Rebellion which occurred in Alberta and Saskatchewan, Canada. However, when we look back to the historical events of those times, we must focus our attention on Treaty 6 between the Indians of central Saskatchewan and central Alberta, and the whites. Why? If you did research on Treaty 6, you will learn the white point of view of those events. In the 1876-1877 War in the Montana region, the prophecy driven Anishinabe people commenced an exodus up to Canada after losing the conflict. They would meet with white leaders and reach an agreement with them in which a huge area of land in central Alberta and central Saskatchewan, was set aside for the Anishinabe people and their allies. That Reserve is known as Treaty 6. White leaders had no intentions of leaving the Anishinabe people with a huge area of land in central Alberta and central Saskatchewan. And Anishinabe ogimak knew it. It did not take long for the backstabbing to commence.
Many Anishinabek were already living in central Saskatchewan, central Alberta, and northeastern British Columbia well before the whites settled those areas, or well before the 1870s. However, a massive exodus of 10,000s of Anishinabe people from the Montana region multiplied the Anishinabe population in the Alberta, British Columbia, and Saskatchewan region. As part of the Treaty 6 agreement, a medicine clause was included. It was the whites who demanded that in return for setting aside an extremely large Reserve, the Anishinabe people must accept the medicine clause which, according to the whites, was necessary to prevent outbreaks of diseases caused by famine. However, the evil whites had more sinister goals. Actually only one goal with the Treaty 6 agreement. That was to decimate the Anishinabe population of the Alberta and Saskatchewan region, which had grown to probably over 100,000, after the 10,000s of Anishinabe people fled up to the Alberta and Saskatchewan region, from the Montana region, after the 1876-1877 War ended. Within a short while the whites launched their cowardly plague warfare assaults on the innocent Anishinabe people. By 1885 Anishinabe ogimak were enraged with the whites after realizing that the cowardly whites were using plague warfare to decimate the Anishinabe population.
In the early spring of 1885, Anishinabe ogimak knew they had been stabbed in the back again by the cowardly whites and many chose to fight the cowardly whites instead of allowing the cowardly whites to steal their land peacefully. Most, However, did not participate in the conflict. Anishinabe ogimak already knew by early 1885, that the whites were going to eradicate the Promised Land, or Treaty 6. As for the so called mixed bloods, we must first include the Mitewiwin before anything else. Mi-Te in Anishinabe means medicine. Mi-Te-Wi-Win means medicine society. The Mitewiwin were one of the 5 major totems of the Anishinabe people. Ogima Sitting Bull was an Anishinabe Mitewiwin member, or medicine man. You pronounce Mi-Te as Mi which rhymes with the English word me, and Te which rhymes with English words like bay, day, gray and so on. It sounds like Mi-Tay. It is the English whites who adopted the French word for mixed bloods which is Metis, which is pronounced almost identically to Mi-Tay. It is pronounced as May-Tay. You now know about the conspiracy.
What the Anishinabe people who chose to fight, faced during the short 1885 conflict, was a foe who had the fineness modern day weapons of war, including machine guns. That, however, did not stop the Anishinabek from fighting for their land. The casualties of this short war were minimal, and in fact, a total of around 260 for the Anishinabek and their white English enemy. After losing the lopsided war, the whites eradicated the Promised Land, then set aside tiny parcels of land to be Reserves for numerous groups of Anishinabe people. Those Anishinabe people who chose to fight may have been granted the largest Reserves. Below is a list of the battles of the 1885 Northwest Rebellion.
