Carole Lindstrom is an Ojibwe/Métis/Cree/Haudenosaunee author, who is a proud citizen of the Turtle Mountain Band of Ojibwe Indians. She writes books for children and young adults. Cuthbert Grant is Carole’s uncle, four generations removed. It came as quite a surprise as she was doing research on her Native ancestry to discover that she was related to him. She was very excited to read his story and discover what an adventurous life he led. She knew right away that she needed to share his story with the world so they could learn about the leader of the Métis people.
