Louis David Riel (the son of Louis Riel Sr. and Julie Lagimodiere; and the husband of Marguerite Monet dit Bellehumeur) - Chipewyan/French Canadian (aka Métis) - 1884

in 1882, Riel actively campaigned on behalf of the Republican Party. He brought a suit against a Democrat for rigging a vote, but was then himself accused of fraudulently inducing British subjects to take part in the election. In response, Riel applied for United States citizenship and was naturalized on 16 March 1883. With two young children, he had by 1884 settled down and was teaching school at the St. Peter's Jesuit mission in the Sun River district of Montana.
