    What do YOU think?

    Most conflicts can be avoided -- but someone has to give in. Did the settlers and the Metis gain or lose from this conflict?

  • Metis of the Red River -

    The Metis won. They had to fight for their right, the leader of the settlers wasn't listening *straight*. They could have made deals or something, well they never had a government that time, maybe the government would have provided a law/rules.

    This is what I think.

    Could I hear your opinion please?

  • Metis of the Red River -

    The settlers invaded Metis territory. It's human (and animal) nature to defend one's territory.

  • Metis of the Red River -

    So no peaceful solution could have been found? Unless the leader of the settler wasn't so demanding right?

  • Metis of the Red River -

    But I can't get this off of my head. Why couldn't a peaceful solution have been found?

    Just cause there was no other way to fight?

  • Metis of the Red River -

    If they didn't fight, the Metis would have had to accept a compromise that would have been to their disadvantage.

    Some conflicts and wars are justified.

  • Metis of the Red River -

    Oh okay. So it all depended on the individuals, if they were ready to listen, then fights would not have happened. But since they were not ready to listen, fights were bound to occur.

    Yep.
