Title: History of the Halfbreed Claim Commissions
Creator: J.P. or James Brady
Subject: Resistance, Red River, 1885, Riel, Louis, Dumont, Gabriel, Métis, Scrip, Brady, James
Description: In this article, Brady analyses the dissolution of the Métis’ land base in Western Canada, arguing that the Métis unjustly had their birthright taken from them by Euro-Canadian capitalists (through the Scrip System). In the article, he discusses the evolution of government in the West and its colonialist impact upon the region’s Indigenous inhabitants. This article is part of the James Brady Papers, which were donated to the Gabriel Dumont Institute in the 1990s by author and activist, Murray Dobbin. Dobbin used this collection to write his book about James Brady and Malcolm Norris entitled “The One-And-A-Half Men: The Story of Jim Brady & Malcolm Norris, Metis Patriots of the 20th Century”. Transcribed by David Morin and edited by Christine Charmbury and Darren R. Préfontaine. This document has been re-transcribed from the original and includes all spelling and grammatical errors.
