Men of Courage from our First Nations

Nations Series for Young Readers profiles ten First Nations men who inspire.
The stories of these men are tales of courage, determination and honesty, often
in the face of racism and adversity. Read about Larry Merculieff, who helped
bring a once oppressed Aleutian people to a position of power and
self-sufficiency, Frank Abraham, an Ojibwe Chief whose wisdom and honesty
helped his tribe to rise from near financial failure, Raymond Cross, a Coyote
leader who won a victory of compensation for the Mandan, Hidatsa and Arikara
people, and Stanley Vollant, an Aboriginal surgeon who fulfilled a 100-year-old
Innu tribal prophecy.
