In 1885, following the hanging of his friend Louis Riel, bison hunter Gabriel Dumont fled to the United States. There he was recruited by the legendary Buffalo Bill, founder of Buffalo Bill’s Wild West, a gigantic outdoor travelling show that re-enacted life in the American West. It made a huge impression on Dumont. Gabriel Dumont’s Wild West Show is a creative work of fiction based on Gabriel Dumont’s desire to have a Wild West show tour France to tell the story of the Métis people and the settlement of the West.
