This Métis octopus bag was collected by James Carnegie, the 9th Earl of Southesk, during his 1859-60 travels from Crow-wing Minnesota to the Rocky Mountains in Alberta. In his journal documenting his seven-month, 4,000-km-long trip across Rupert's Land, Southesk calls this a Red River fire bag, which suggests he acquired it in Red River, in modern day Manitoba, but the initials “WJC” in the beadwork suggest otherwise.

During 1869, Settlers were angry at the HBC for proceeding with a sale of Ruperts land without consulting them. Also angry at surveyors, who were laying out square township with no regard of their traditional strip lots. In an effort to preserve the rights of his people, Riel organized bands of Metis to observe and confront the surveyors in the summer.
