Francis Pegahmagabow

The story of Canada's most decorated Native soldier for bravery (and the most accomplished sniper in North American military history) is all at once an adventure story, a book about language and culture,  missing pieces of words and stories that disappeared from his "Nishnaabeg" nation for a time, and a love letter from his great-great grandson.

On this episode of Ojibwe Stories: Gaganoonididaa, UMD professor Brian McInnes talks with host Erik Redix about his latest book project, Between the Lines: The Stories of Francis Pegahmagabow, a biography of his great-grandfather, an Ojibwe man many-times decorated as a WWI soldier.
