Red River
The Red River flows north from its United States origin at Lake Traverse, for nearly 900 km, across the border at Emerson, Manitoba, to the myriad channels that feed into Lake Winnipeg.1 Its banks, at the confluence of the Red and the Assiniboine Rivers, were home to the Red River Settlement.2
