Imagine if the government told you to pack up your things and move away from everything you knew to live on land you had never seen. That is exactly what happened to the family of Mountain Wolf Woman before she was born. Eager to return to Wisconsin, her family traveled hundreds of miles by canoe to the land they considered home. Once back home, however, they did not stay in one place, going to the same schools and jobs every day. Instead, they followed the seasons to hunt and gather food.
