George Copway

George Copway (1818 – June 27, 1869) was a Mississaugas Ojibwa writer, ethnographer, Methodist missionary, lecturer, and advocate of indigenous peoples. His Ojibwa name was ''Kah-Ge-Ga-Gah-Bowh'' (''Gaagigegaabaw'' in the Fiero orthography), meaning "He Who Stands Forever". In 1847 he published a memoir about his life and time as a missionary. This work made him Canada's first literary celebrity in the United States. In 1851 he published ''The Traditional History and Characteristic Sketches of The Ojibway Nation,'' the first published history of the Ojibwa in English. Provided by Wikipedia
