- Carol Vulliamy




Cuthbert Grant- Metis Leader at the Battle of Seven Oaks.

1793-1854

 

Like other young Metis, Cuthbert loved the fur trade passion

He became a free trader promoting the beaver pelt fashion.

Freedom of trade he sought for the Metis pemmican and furs

A monopoly was counter productive to honest entrepreneurs.

 

1816- Cuthbert waged battle against HBC and Gov. Semple

The Battle of Seven Oaks took several years to engrapple.

Peace re-established- he became “Warden of the Plains.”

His maintained the status quo- quarrelers must refrain.

 

In 1839 he became a Counsellor of Assiniboia- his style

-Next a Magistrate to make his years seem worthwhile.

His effort to maintain peace won him respect and more

A plaque hung at the Francois-Xavier Town Office dιcor.
