My Three Main Points On
Why Louis Riel was an
Influential Person in History
 He had an impact on Manitoba joining confederation
 He was one of the first major influential Métis
leaders
 He helped make Métis recognized first nations
He Had an Impact on
Manitoba Joining
Confederation
 He wanted the colony to enter confederation with
institutions much like Quebec
 Riel demanded that Red River enter confederation
as a province, and that the local inhabitants
possessed the same rights as all Canadians
 This allowed for Manitoba to exercise constitutional
power in its own right
He Was One of The First
Major Influential Métis
leaders
 Louis is known as the father of Manitoba but he is
also known as the man who stood up for the rights
of the Métis people
 Louis Riel’s fight for equal rights for Métis allowed
him to become a symbol of leadership to many Métis
and non Métis individuals in that time and in the
modern day
 Louis showed that the preconceived idea of Métis
people as dirty unintelligent half breeds was wrong
He Helped Make Métis
Become Recognized First
Nations
 He believed that the French speaking Métis were
belonging to neither the French community nor the
native community, he believed that they were their
own nation.
 Louis Riel pushed strongly for land rights and
received them in the form of script.
 Because the government of Canada, acknowledged
the Métis and gave them script it was an
acknowledgment that they were a native people
His Major
Contribution
His Major Contribution was his
hand in Manitoba joining
confederation
