Chiefs of Loyal Bands Visit Ontario and Quebec


Chiefs of loyal bands were invited to visit Ontario and Quebec following the end of the 1885 resistance. The following chiefs attended: Ahtakhakoop, Mistawasis, O'Soup, Kakewistahaw. They went on a guided tour around these two provinces, including attending the unveiling of a statue dedicated to Mohawk leader Joseph Brant

Government officials attempted to encourage loyalty among western bands by providing modest rewards, such as this trip, to chiefs of bands that were deemed to have remained loyal throughout the 1885 resistance.
