Northwestern Ontario was a very different place when Dedibaayaanimanook Sarah Keesick Olsen was born in Namegosibiing Trout Lake back in 1922. Raised in a close-knit Anishinaabe community that lived off the land, she was guided by her parents and extended family in the traditional teachings of her people. Over time, though, as their ancestral homelands in the Lac Seul–Red Lake region were overtaken by settlers, the Anishinaabe faced greater challenges in carrying out their customary ways of life.

A resourceful and competent young woman, Dedibaayaanimanook adapted to the new and ever-changing world around her. She met a European man and raised a family that shared the values of both their cultures. Following Nimishoomis recounts the life of this extraordinary woman.
