Native Chiefs and Famous Métis Leadership and Bravery in the Canadian West Amazing Stories by Holly Quan
These inspiring true stories illuminate the courage and wisdom of five 19th-century Native leaders and famous Métis who fought against impossible odds to preserve the culture and rights of their people. The visionary Cree leader Big Bear sought peace and a better life, only to be hunted mercilessly and imprisoned unjustly. Jerry Potts, the legendary North West Mounted Police guide and interpreter, helped smash the whisky trade and negotiate treaties. Persevering through sorrow and defeat, brave and steadfast men such as these left a lasting mark on Aboriginal culture and the history of western Canada.
