The North-West Rebellion (or the North-West Resistance, Saskatchewan Rebellion, Northwest Uprising, Métis Resistance, or Second Riel Rebellion) of 1885 was a brief and unsuccessful uprising by the Métis people. Saskatchewan Métis took up arms under Louis Riel and Gabriel Dumont in the North-West Rebellion of 1885. There was an associated uprising by First Nations Cree and Assiniboine of the District of Saskatchewan against the government of Canada. Despite some notable early victories at Duck Lake, Fish Creek and Cut Knife, the rebellion ended when the Métis were defeated at the Siege of Batoche and led to the dispersal of Western Métis.
