Early Wars in Canada
The wars of First Peoples, the French and the British shaped Canada and Canadians.
The first gallery introduces the concept of war and its relevance to Canadians and Canada. Visitors explore the Canadian experience of conflict from Aboriginal warfare and post European-contact Canada, to Louis Riel and the Northwest Resistance of 1885.
