Battle of the 7 oaks

Miles Macdonnel issued the Pemmican Proclamation because his group was running out of food and he didn't want them to starve. This caused a lot of troubles and the result was a war....

Could I know more about the war? I already read some things on the net about this, but I understand better when you tutors explain to me in your words, so could you please tell me about the Battle of Seven oaks?

asked by Emma
  1. MacDonnell wanted the food for the Scottish settlers. The proclamation wouldn't let the Metis sell pemmican or hunt from horseback. This meant that the Metis would starve.

    The Metis attacked the company, killed many and won the battle in 15 minutes.

  5. What it says abt him
    He was not involved in the war.

    Selkirk, was moved by the plight of so many of his countrymen that he decided to move some of them to Canada to start new settlements. He purchased land from the Hudson’s Bay Company (HBC) in the area known as Rupert’s Land, and began moving settlers across the Atlantic in 1811
