--


In 1885, following the hanging of his friend Louis Riel, M tis Resistance leader and bison hunter Gabriel Dumont fled to the United States. There he was recruited by the legendary Buffalo Bill, founder of Buffalo Bill's Wild West, a gigantic outdoor travelling show that re-enacted life in the American West. Dumont dreamed of putting together a similar show to tell the story of the struggle of the M tis to reclaim their rights.


The creative team behind Gabriel Dumont's Wild West Show - including ten authors, Indigenous and non-Indigenous, French- and English-speaking men and women - brings Dumont's dream to life in a captivating, joyously anachronistic saga with a rodeo vibe.


Co-published with Prise de parole (Sudbury), the work consists of two versions, one predominantly in English and the other predominantly in French.
