Biographical Notes:

Member of the Provisional Government of Assiniboia; Position in the Legislative Assembly of Assiniboia:

  • Honourable Member for St. Norbert (south)[1]

The biographical details for the Pierre Parenteau who sat on the Legislative Assembly of Assiniboia as hon. member for St. Norbert in 1870 are difficult to confirm. The problem is that there were at least ten Red River Pierre Parenteaus listed at various times as being of the parish of St. Norbert — at least nine of those referred to were of an age to have participated in the Provisional Government (though some may be duplicate references to individuals listed with a different one of their spouses).

Pending further research, or,  preferably, insights proffered by descendants, all that seems certain is that:

• A Pierre Parenteau ‘Sr.’ served as a Justice of the Peace in St. Norbert in 1869.[2]

• A Pierre Parenteau was elected as a delegate to the Convention of 16 November 1869, and to la Grande Convention/ Convention of Forty of 25 January 1870.

• A Pierre Parenteau served as Honourable Member for St. Norbert on the Legislative Assembly of Assiniboia.

• After the creation of Manitoba, a Pierre Parenteau was elected president of a meeting called in St. Vital to discuss the rumors of Fenian invasion.[3]

• A Pierre Parenteau was working that same year with André-D. Lépine and Louis Riel to address the issue of Canada’s apparent reneging on a promise to grant amnesty to all who participated in the Resistance. (Both Pierre Parenteau Sr. and Pierre Parenteau Jr. signed “Inhabitants of St. Vital, petition protesting the raid of the home of Louis Riel, to Sir A.G. Archibald,  dated 9 December 1871, LAC MG 26-A, Sir John A. Macdonald Papers, vol. 187 (3 pages), 78079-78072.”

• A Pierre Parenteau supported Riel’s bid to win the federal riding of Provencher in 1874.

• In 1878 a Pierre Parenteau was among those working to secure redress from the Canadian Department of the Interior for Red River settlers who had been denied patent on their lands.[4]

There is more than one historical Parenteau whose political activity after 1869 suggests he might be the Pierre Parenteau who belonged to the Legislative Assembly of Assiniboia. In my opinion, the references above, to a Pierre Parenteau actively engaged in 1871 with Riel and Lepine, suggest the vigour of a relatively young man (though the possibility that he was an older man can not be discounted).

Possibility ‘A’ (which I regard as unlikely: because he would have been very young and a new arrival):

Pierre Parenteau’s business premises, St Jean-Baptiste, Montcalm, Manitoba, c. 1895.

Born c. 1851, apparently in Quebec, by 1880 a Pierre Paranteau operated a general store in St. Jean Baptiste, rural municipality of Montcalm, Manitoba. He was a strong proponent of development in his community. In 1886, he was one of nine elected to the newly formed board of the agricultural society, organized under the auspices of the Government of Manitoba to serve the municipalities of Emerson, Montcalm, and Morris.[5] Parenteau remained the leading merchant in St. Jean Baptiste into the 1890s. By 1895 his proposal to build a local grist mill had been accepted, the Grist Mills Elevator Company had been formed, and Parenteau was one of those overseeing construction.[6] Apparently skilled at maintaining “contact with provincial authorities and other municipalities,”  in French and in English, this Pierre Paranteau served as Municipal Reeve from 1892-1897.[7] By 1911 he had left the merchant trade to concentrate on running his hotel. Significantly, this Pierre Parenteau was a member and director of the Société Saint-Jean-Baptiste/St. Jean Baptiste Society (created 1871), whose members, from 1870, had annually observed the Legislative Assembly of Assiniboia’s creation of Manitoba (and St. Jean Baptiste Day), by staging celebrations for the 24th of June.[8]

Possibility ‘B’ (with extensive, though unclear, ties in Red River Settlement — one problem presented to those who would trace family ties is that pertinent records from the St. Boniface diocese were destroyed by fire.

“L. to R,: Johnny Sansregret, Pierriche Parenteau, Pierre Gariépy, Philipe Garnot (secretary), Albert Monkman, Pierre Vandale, Baptiste Vandale, Toussaint Lucier, Maxime Dubois, Jimus Short, Tourond, Emmanuel Champagne.”

A correction to both caption versions above has been offered by Parenteau family descendants: “The third man from the left in the photo, wearing the white beard, is Pierriche PIERRE Parenteau.” [See Comments below].

The story of a second Pierre Parenteau supplies a marked contrast to the first:

By 1885, one of the elder Pierre Parenteaus of Red River had relocated to the Batoche area. On 18 March of that year he was selected by Louis Riel to stand as as nominal President of a provisional government.[9] A deposition provided by André Alexis, on Parenteau’s behalf after the latter’s arrest and incarceration at Regina, described him thus:

Pierre Parenteau I have known since I met him in the Red River Settlement, now Manitoba, since 1862. He is a man of 72 years of age, and has eleven children, and since I first knew him he has been a man of peace, and who was remarkable for the good influence he exerted over the people of his race and kindred, who, when on the plains in days now passed, a leader of his people he prevented many a bloody deed between the Indian tribes and half-breeds, and always was on the side of peace and order. This good old man was misled by the wily Riel telling him that the younger men of his race required the soothing and pacifying influence of the old friend and counsellor of their forefathers; that it was his duty to become a leader or counsellor among the people in their peaceful efforts to secure their rights. That it was by such assistance as his that he depended upon avoiding all approach to violence, and to succeed in keeping union and peace among the half-breed people. This poor old man was borne on by the appeal to his heart and conscientiously did what he thought was right. He was not in conscience or in fact guilty of any disloyal thought or action, and stands before God and man to-day, although in a felon’s cell, an honest man. To keep such an aged and respectable man as this any longer in prison must be to strike at the heart of justice and render law a thing of scorn. His house has been burned down and all his horses and some of his cattle are lost or stolen.[10]

This same Pierre Parenteau had served a seven months’ sentence in the Stony Mountain Penitentiary.[11] Reportedly he died shortly after his release.[12]

There is a tradition that contends Pierrre ‘Pierriche’ Parenteau was the Pierre Parenteau of interest with respect to the Legislative Assembly of Assiniboia. Historians George Woodcock and James R. Miller (as author and editor respectively), imply the connection in Gabriel Dumont: The Metis Chief and His Lost World (Peterborough: Broadview Press, 2003), 145.

They state that the Pierre Parenteau who was arrested in 1885 was “a veteran of 1869,” although they do not detail what his participation in 1869 involved, nor do they disclose documentary source evidence.

They might have based the statement on a document such as that printed in From Rupert’s Land to Canada (2001), 174-175.[13] That document, dated 1871, is a petition submitted to the Lieutenant Governor of Manitoba, protesting an attempt to arrest Louis Riel. The petitioners request that “your Excellency … make sure that similar injustices do not occur again against those who found themselves involved in the 1869-1870 disturbances.”  A Pierre Parateau Père/ Sr. signed the petition, but the document does not state whether any of the signatories were among those who had been ‘involved’ in 1869 – 1870.

The tradition that Parenteau Sr. sided with Riel to create a Legislative Assembly in 1870 is passed along in an unverified text, posted 18 December 2004, to a Metis Culture and Heritage Resource Centre forum, that purports to have been forwarded by “A Parenteau descendant in Quebec,” and reads as though written by the Parenteau in question, although no details about the original source are included. The content of the posted text is as follows:

Pierre Parenteau, couramment appele Pierriche, fut un Metis influent et un chasseur repute de bisons.  Il a acquis une certaine celebrite par son role de leader dans les revendications des Metis du Manitoba qui aboutirent a la creation de cette province.  Par la suite, il alla s’installer avec sa famille ed d’autres Metis sure la riviere Saskatchewan a Batoche ou il dut encore defendre les droits de la nation metisse contre le gouvernement federal d’Otawa

Mon nom est Pierriche Parenteau.  J’ai ete condamne a 7 an de prison en 1885 pour des raisons d’abord politiques.  La crise consitutionelle que vous viveq avec le Canada et Ottawa, moi je l’ai ressentie vivement en 1870 au Manitoba et en 1885 a Batoche, en Saskatchewan, les 2 fois aux cotes de Louis Riel.

Je suis metis et fier de l’etre.  Mon pere est un quebecois, ne a Montreal en 1776, dans le faubourg St. Laurent.  Il s’est marie a la mode du pays a une Metisse du Manitoba: Suzanne Cri.  Il etait le petit-fils de Pierre Parenteau et de Madeleine Rondeau et donc l’arrierve-petit-fils de Pierre-Louis Parenteau, du Petit Chenal de Yamaska.  Ma descendance actuelle se trouve principalement en Saskatchewan et en Alberta.

Pour aller au plus court, ma premiere implication politiue avec Louis Riel eut lie au Manitoba, a Riviere Rouge.  Nos terres etaient sur le territoire de chasse de la compagnie de la Baie d’Hudson.  Le Canada en reprit possession et aussitot Ottawa envoya des arpenteurs rediviser nos terres sans nous consulter.  Nous avons revendique patiement1)une assemblee legistlative 2)le francais et l’anglais comme langues officielles et 3) le respect de nos costumes.  Nous avons gagne notre cause en 1870 et ce fut la fondation du Manitoba comme province.  L’annee suivante, en 1871, j’ai combattu les amercains qui voulaient s’empareer de l’ouest.  Je fus remercie par le gouverneru qui vint personnellement me donner la main.  Vers 1883, je suis alle m’etabler sur qui n’etait pas encore une province.  Encoure la, il a fallu defendre nos droits.  Nous avons rappele Louis Riel, car Ottawa ne voulait pas entendre parler de nos revendications.  Louis Riel me nomma president du gouvernement provisoire de la Saskatchewan.  Nous primes les armes, mais apres de durs combat, nous avons du nous rendre.  Le 14 aout 1885, a l’age de 72 ans, je fus condanme a 7 ans de prison.  3 mois plus, tard, Louis Riel etait pendu.

An English translation was contributed by another forum member:

Pierre Parenteau, also known as Pierriche, was a influential Metis and a well known buffalo hunter. He gained his reputation from his role as a leader in the recognition of Manitoba Metis rights that lead to the creation of the province. Later, with his family and other Metis, he settled on the River Saskatchewan, at Batoche, where he once again had to defent [sic] the rights of the Metis nation against the federal governement [sic] of Ottawa.

My name is Pierriche PARENTEAU. I was sentenced to 7 years in jail in 1885, mainly for political reasons. The constitutional crisis we are undergoing with Canada and Ottawa, I felt deeply in 1870 in Manitoba and again in 1885 at Batoche, in Saskatchewan, twice at the side of Louis Riel.

I am a Metis and proud of it. My father was a quebecois, born in Montreal in 1776, in the Faubourg St-Laurent [Montreal St.Lawrence Ward]. He was married “in the custom of the country” with a Manitoba Metis : Suzanne CRIE. He was the grandson of Pierre PARENTEAU and Madeleine RONDEAU and great grandson of Pierre-Louis PARENTEAU, from the Petit Chenal d’Yamaska [St.Michel d’Yamaska parish]. My descendance is mainly in Saskatchewan and Alberta.

To be brief, my first political involvement with Louis Riel was in Manitoba, at Red River. Our lands were on a territory owned by the Hudson’s Bay Compagny [sic]. Canada took possession and immediatly [sic], Ottawa sent surveyors to divide the lands in lots, without any consultation. We patiently demanded :

1) a legislative assembly
2) french and english as equal official languages
3) the respect of our traditions

We won our cause and in 1870, Manitoba became a province. The next year, in 1871, I fought against the Americans who wanted to control the West. I was personnally [sic] thanked by the governement [sic] who came to shake my hands. Around 1883, I came to settle in what was not yet the province of Saskatchewan. Once again, we had to defend our rights. We called Louis Riel, because Ottawa did not want to hear our demands. Louis Riel named me president of the Provisional Governement [sic] of Saskatchewan. We took arms, but after harsh combats, we had to surrender. On August 14 1885, at the age of 74 years old, I was sentenced to 7 years in jail. 3 months later, Louis Riel was hanged.

Unfortunately, an account such as that given in the text above is simply too easy to invent. Tempting though it is to take it  at face value, the information cannot be considered without documentation that authenticates and verifies the source.

Based on the debates of the Legislative Assembly of Assiniboia (both their content and the fact that the members were in the settlement from March to June and not away with the plains hunters), the Hon. Pierre Parenteau for St. Norbert seems primarily to have been occupied in farming (though he may well have been an excellent hunter).

This introduces Possibility ‘C’: that Pierre Parenteau, son of Pierre ‘Pierriche’ Parenteau Sr. (the latter recognized as an accomplished plains hunter), was the member of the Legislative Assembly of Assiniboia. That scenario would be in keeping with a pattern of membership repeated in a number of families: the Legislative Assembly of Assiniboia member was the son of a man who had previously acted, and garnered respect, as a leader in the settlement (see for example: Harrison, Bunn, Garrioch, Sinclair, Gunn, Tait, and Riel).

Possibility ‘D’ still remains: that the Pierre Paranteau of the Legislative Assembly of Assiniboia was an individual not described above, but another of that name who resided at the settlement.

Because he died in 1867, The senior Pierre PARRENTEAU below is not a candidate for the Legislative Assembly of Assiniboia representative — though his son, who was about 36-38 years old in 1870, qualifies:

Born January 1842 [SHSB] to Jean Baptiste NORMAND (Metis) and Louise CARRIERRE (Metis); her home parish is also listed as St. Norbert, not Pembina — though she does state her husband’s occupation was farmer. The discrepancy may be due to her having applied for scrip on an earlier date — 19 November 1875 — perhaps the family relocated to Pembina afterwards. Scrip taken out by what appear to be her children indicates a Helene NORMAND married to a Pierre PARANTEAU had also travelled to Batoche, 1872; she was at Batoche again in 1884.

  1. Cameron Parenteau says:

    The third man from the left in the photo, wearing the white beard, is Pierriche PIERRE Parenteau. He was an uncle to my great great great grandpa Alphonse Joseph Parenteau born 1849, son of Joseph Parenteau and Suzanne Daigneault.

    Cameron Parenteau

  2. Jan Canton says:

    Incorrect. Pierre is, as previously identified, the SECOND man from the left.

    Much of this supposition is incorrect. Actual members of this particular line were never consulted.

    While plan B is more truthful, it too is flawed.

  3. mona says:

    The third man from the left with the white beard is Pierre Parenteau / sp. Helene Normand. their daughter Marie married John Baptiste Letendre , they are my grandparents , My father John Baptiste Letendre [same name as his father listed above] has a very strong resemblance to this Pierre in the photo
    . I believe this to be true , however , I am not sure if this Pierre in the Photo is Pierre Sr. and is the father of Pierre Jr . who may be in fact my great grandfather , which would make the Pierre in the photo my GG-grandfather .

  4. Richard Parenteau says:

    Pierre is the 3rd man from left to right. He is the nephew of my GGG Gandfather Pierre Parenteau.
