Archibald Belaney (Grey Owl)

1936

“The English gentleman Archie Belaney became so obsessed with the culture of Native Americans that he transformed himself into Grey Owl. He lived as a tribesman, taking an Indian wife, and described vividly the life and everyday struggle on the Indian reservation. Derided by some and misunderstood in his lifetime, he is now considered the father of Canadian ecology.”
