Subject: RE: Origins: Red Riv Valley, Gaelic?
The red River of the North is north central, not northeast. It is due north of the Red River of the South.

There is no clear indication of location in "Red River Valley." My grounds are that the farms along the southern Red River, and ranches of North Texas, were well-developed and well-known before the Metis and immigrants made much of the Manitoba area.
