Gabriel Dumont: Li Chef Michif in Images and in Words
Format: Paperback
  • Gabriel Dumont is an iconic figure in Métis and Canadian history. In the
    popular imagination, he is well known for leading the Métis forces during the
    1885 Resistance, and for being a renowned bison hunt leader, a Wild West
    show performer, and a husband to his beloved Madeleine. But outside of
    printed history and a fragmented oral history what do we really know about
    him? How has he been imagined over time? This book answers these
    questions by focusing on visual and journalistic representations of Gabriel
    Dumont through time and space. Compiled together for the first time,
    these eclectic sources provide poignant vignettes of Gabriel Dumont’s life,
    which will greatly contribute to our knowledge about him, and will further
    contribute to his legend.
