• 1814 ‐ Governor Macdonnel issued a proclamation forbidding the hunting of buffalo from horseback because it drove the herd too far from Red River. This was the specialty of the Métis.
• There were skirmishes throughout the winter of 1814‐1815 with Cuthbert Grant encouraging the Métis to continue hunting as they always had.
