This is the story of Ozhaguscodaywayquay, daughter of the Ojibway chief Waubojeeg. Ozhaguscodaywayquay -- the Woman of the Green Glade -- lived in northern Wisconsin until she married the fur trader John Johnston in 1792. After they married, the couple moved to Sault Sainte Marie, Michigan, where they settled and raised a family while John operated a major trading post at what was perhaps the most important crossroads in the upper Great lakes region. The influence of the Johnston's and their children was felt throughout the upper Great Lakes, in both the United States and Canada, and the legacy of Ozhaguscodaywayquay is truly monumental. One of the Johnston's daughters married Henry Rowe Schoolcraft -- explorer, Indian agent, teacher, politician, and ehtnographer. Ozhaguscodaywayquay became one of Schoolcraft's major sources of information about Ojibway culture. In turn, it was Schoolcraft's ethnography that provided much information used by Henry Wadsworth Longfellow in his epic poem The Song of Hiawatha.
