Abstract:

When a man lives to be a hundred he has many tales to tell. When that man is Dan Kennedy of the Carry the Kettle First Nation in Saskatchewan, his hundred-year-old memories and personal recollections are a part of Canada's heritage. As Chief Ochankugahe he witnessed the final days of Pre-Contact Assiniboine Sioux society, the turmoil of the Indian Wars, Ghost Dance, the Homestead Era and the Residential Schools. Educated at St. Boniface College, the chief is an articulate, reflective commentator as well as an eye-witness to history. Despite the extreme human trials covered in the book, including famine and war, the Chief uses humour and compassion and is writes without rancour.
