Métis National Flag

Battle of Seven Oaks.

  • Occurred during late 1815, and early 1816.

  • This was a disagreement between Hudson Bay Company and the North West Company between fur-companies in Western Canada (Winnipeg, Manitoba)

  • The commander for the North West Company was Cuthbert Grant. The commander for Hudson Bay Company was Robert Semple.


  • The two; The Northwest Company and Hudson Bay Company, had been at each other since the establishment of the Red River Colony.

  • The Red River Colony was a colonization project. It was granted by The Hudson Bay Company.

  • The Northwest Company believed the settlement was just a way for Hudson Bay’s Company to gain control of the fur trade in the area.

Importance of Battle of Seven Oak…Which led to nationalism.

  • Cuthbert Grant later became an important figure in the Hudson's Bay Company after its merger with the Northwest Company.

  • The Battle of seven oaks, made the Métis who they are today. Nationalism is the devotion and loyalty to ones’ own nation. And this is exactly what the Métis did.

  • They proved to all the devotion and how much dedication they had in protecting their settlement.
