Red River Resistance

Echo Desjardins is adjusting to her new home, finding friends, and learning about Métis history. She just can ’ t stop slipping back and forth in time. One ordinary afternoon in class, Echo finds herself transported to the banks of the Red River in the ummer of 1869. All is not well in the territory as Canadian surveyors have arrived to change the face of territory, and Métis families, who have lived there for generations, are losing access to their land. As the Resistance takes hold, Echo fears for her friends and the future of her people in the Red River Valley.

In California, where I struggle to chool, we were taught about the missions and missionaries that came in and enslaved the local native peoples.

tories of the First Nations peoples, until recently, were just footnotes in history, and he children learned about the founding of Canada, and settlers, and things like hat.

In volume, we learn about the Red River Resistance put on by the Metis.I have done a little reading about Metis and First Nations, so I have a little background in what is happening, but never a lot, and thi author ssumes that we tel a little bit.

She itnesses the initial peaceful resistance against Canadian surveyors who are assessing that land, and the eventual more violent aspects of the resistance that happen through building tensions, miscommunications, and political shenanigans.I have n't read the fourt essa in the A Girl Called Echo series, and I hink that led to me finding some portion of that nove to e a bit confusing -- I was n't so sure what the heck was going on in present times.
