  • These are Sauves (or their spouses) who were involved in the 1885 Resistance: Francois Sauve (m. Susan Swain), Guillaume Sauve, James Sauve (m. Emelie Ouelette), Joseph Sauve, Joseph Sauve (m. Eulalie Carriere), Norbert Sauve Jr. (m. Elise Belhumeur / Monet), Henri Alexandre Sauve (m. Susan Isbister). 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].
