Dumont could converse in seven languages (although he never learned more than a few words of English); he was an excellent marksman with both bow and rifle; he was a splendid horseman who possessed an extensive knowledge of prairie geography; and, like all Métis leaders, he had mastered the diplomatic culture of the northern plains.
In 1851, at the young age of 13, Dumont was introduced to plains warfare when he fought at the Battle of Grand Coteau, defending a Métis encampment against a large Dakota war party.

In the same year, Dumont was elected president of his community, Batoche, Saskatchewan.
During the 1885 Resistance, Dumont led his people into battle against the encroaching policies and armies of the Dominion of Canada. Printed at the worker-owned Stumptown Printers, Portland, OR.
He also had five goals and five helpers in 20 outings with the Syracuse Crunch of the AHL.
Stamkos was playing great last year before he suffered a torn lateral meniscus.
Gabriel Dumont is best known as the man who led the small Métis military forces during the Northwest Resistance of 1885.
He was born in the Red River area in 1837, the son of Isidore Dumont, a Métis hunter, and Louise Laframboise.
In 1872, he took advantage of the growing traffic on the Carlton trail and opened a ferry across the South Saskatchewan River and a small store upstream from Batoche.
In 1873, his position as a leader was formalized when he was elected as president of the short-lived local government created by the Métis living on the south branch of the Saskatchewan.
Dumont's skill as a buffalo hunter led to his election as hunt chief of the Saskatchewan Métis in 1863, a role he maintained until about 1881, by which time buffalo herds had virtually disappeared from the region.
