Hi Bob,

Your site is great and I would like to thank you very much for the historical data which are very informative and interesting. Anything you can add about your customs, your language and your culture in general will be most welcome. I have tried to subscribe to the Anishinaabe Blog, but I get an error message. Hopefully, this can be fixed soon as I'd love to learn more about your Nation. I'll be in touch soon!

SEE: The 1st 3D and monumental portrait of Norval Morrisseau changing into "Copper Thunderbird" size 8'x 6' on YouTube Video/ morrisseau murar....a two year project of research and studio work it encompasses the sacred bear, Ojibwa medicine snake and turtle, thunderbird/fish headdress and medicine stick. The portrait was not a commission but a labour from the heart to honour Morrisseau's gifts to our world. It has been photographed in the white clay it was sculpted in and has not yet been cast into bronze. Thank you! Susan Murar/Sculptor "Woman with Courage".

I very much appreciated viewing your website. My anscestors (DeLaronde) are from your area. I have done much geneological research of my family & heritage and I am very proud to say I have native background and want to learn more. I can date my anscestry back to 1765 and have visited North Bay for some of my geneological research information. I have met many family members on line who also are doing geneology on the De Laronde Family.
Thank you so much for your website.

Happy to find your site. Thanks for sharing your knowledge. Descending of Nicolet and Jenne Gissis Bahmaadjimiwin I am eager to learn of Nipissing ways past and present. Through the marriage of Jean Pichet and Marie Magdeleine Euphasie Nicolet I am granddaughter of the above named. My paternal grandmother was Geraldine Pichette, daughter of Adelard Pichette and Melvina Poquette. I was born in Michigan (U.S.), and live on the Michigan - Wisconsin boarder. I very much appreciate your site, especially I liked reading your historical overview of the Nipissing. Love the history!

Hello Bob,

My brother has gotten the bug to do extensive genealogical research. Since our French-Canadian side has been around since the first French settlers, it's hardly a surprise that he discovered some native Indian blood in our background.

Which tribe? The Nipissing? Who? Never heard of them.

And so here I am, a very distant cousin of yours checking in, signing your guest book. Curious to learn more about a tribe that I only became aware of an hour ago and have been reading about since.

It's so heartbreaking. Such a small tribe with such a tragic history that has endured so much hardship- glad you're here to relate that story for me. Fortunately, the story seems safe in your capable hands. Happy somebody in cyberspace is keeping the Nipissing candle lit for folks like me to find our way back to it.

My best wishes,
Jeff Harpe

I have enjoyed reading several of your entries on this site. Having once lived in Caledonia and having occasionally taught at Six Nations, I came to appreciate the people there. I was particularly interested in finding out more about elder Josephine who was mentioned by an acquaintance.

I am also a descendent of Lemuel Jenkins Crabbe of Crabbe Mountain, New Brunswick and, although a different group, I am always interested in knowing more. Happy to have found this site today! Gail

Hi...Thanks to modern science we can learn so much about things.My dad was born in Verner,Ontario in 1906,not far from the annual gathering of the tribes in Sturgeon falls.I was told growing up we were Algonquin and the photo I saw of my grandfather showed him to be 50 percent at least.I have a facebook page,just type in Don Lefevre.For many years I have hoped to visit the area and my heritage.God bless.
