Description: One cannot have a complete appreciation of the 1885 Northwest Resistance without
considering the women of the resistance and the matriarchal nature of Métis society. This paper lists the spouses of the resistance fighters. Most of these women were also the sisters or daughters, mothers or aunts, of other resistance fighters.
