Cree Chiefs- Battle of Loon Lake- June, 1885


The Battle of Loon Lake concluded the 1885 Rebellion

Hiding peacefully, the Metis not prepared for ammunition!

Small numbers, short supplies, now in a poor position…

A Metis peacemaker advanced and was shot on mission.


Metis hid in dug outs while others saw futility in motion.

Metis fled, Wandering Spirit surrendered, no emotion.

Big Bear left undetected until the July 2, 1885 demotion.

No troops lost- Metis loss heavy in this battle not chosen.


The Battle of Loon Lake marked the end of Metis Resistance

Years later the government took a backward glance.

Canadian hearts knew the devastation inflicted in advance

-Recognition to those who dared to take a strong stance.
