Their three sons grew up with both their mother’s hunter-warrior culture and their father’s European roots. After early years spent primarily in the ‘wild man’s land’ of Sault Ste Marie, close to Ojibwa relatives and Metis neighbours, the family moved to the commercial society of Montreal. There and later in other urban communities across Canada, the Ermatingers lived as successful citizens while publicly retaining their Ojibwa heritage” Softcover. (#409) $23.00
