  • Misc.: 
  • 1. There were ten Nolins (or their spouses) involved in the 1885 Resistance. They were: Adolphus Nolin (m. Elise Letendre), Andre Nolin, Caroline Nolin (m. Jerome Racette), Charles Nolin (m. Marie-Anne Harrison), Duncan Nolin (m. Caroline Harrison), Joseph Nolin Sr. (m. Marie-Anne Gaudry), Joseph Octave Nolin (m. Marie-Anne Gaudry), Joseph Octave Nolin Jr. (m. Marie Villeneuve), Lucie Nolin (m. Patrice Tobie Lepine), Marie-Anne Nolin (m. St. Pierre Parenteau) and Pauline Nolin (m. Bernard Belanger). The 1885 North-West Resistance by the Metis and the Cree, Kainai, Piikani, Saulteaux and Siksika peoples took place against a backdrop of starvation, broken treaties and encroachment by new settlers in Saskatchewan and Alberta. The resistance fighters eventually lost and Canada’s federal government asserted its control over the area.   [Source: Veterans and Families of the 1885  Northwest Resistance, Lawrence Barkwell, Louis Riel Institute].
