Scope and contentGeorge Gwynne Mann was a farm instructor and Indian agent for the government of Canada in Onion Lake, North-West Territories from 1879 to 1900. Mann and his family fled Onion Lake to Fort Pitt after the so-called Frog Lake "massacre," and were later taken as hostages from Fort Pitt and held for two months by Plains Cree warriors. The file contains hand written manuscripts and photocopied documents that detail Mann family's involvement in the 1885 rebellion, and describe aspects of Aboriginal ceremony and culture. The second folder contains several newspaper stories about the 1885 rebellion from the early 20th century.
