Riel House is a National Historic Site because it is the house where Louis Riel's family lived for many years. Louis Riel was a Métis politician who fought for the rights and culture of the Métis people by organizing them in uprisings against the Canadian government. He is now considered to be one of the founders of the province of Manitoba. Riel House has been restored to mimic the home of Louis Riel's family following his execution. The house is a museum containing Métis artifacts and shows visitors how a Métis family might have lived back in 1886.
