Historia biográfica

Anahareo, 1906-1986, was born Gertrude Bernard to an Iroquois family in Mattawa, Ontario. In the mid-1920s she married Grey Owl (Archibald Belaney), 1888-1938. She encouraged her husband to abandon trapping and to engage in the conservation efforts that later made him famous. They had two daughters, Shirley Dawn (McKay, later Bruce, later Richardson), 1932-1984, and Anne (Gaskell), 1937- . Dawn devoted much of her life to promoting the ideas and reputation of her father. Anahareo and Grey Owl separated in 1936 and in 1939 she married Count Eric Axel Moltke-Huitfeldt, 1906-1963, a member of a Swedish noble family who lived in Saskatchewan and later Alberta. They had a daughter Katherine (Swartile), 1941- .

In 1972 Anahareo wrote the best-seller, Devil in Deerskins : My Life With Grey Owl and she was awarded the Order of Canada in 1983. In 1954 Dawn married La Verne McKay, 1916-1981, and they had two children, Sandra Deane McKay (Woodcock) and Glaze Stansfield McKay. She later married Arthur Bruce. In 1979 she married Bob Richardson, 1927-2007. Dawn's novel, Smoke, was published posthumously (Manotick : Penumbra, 2004). Bob wrote a memoir of their life together entitled A Face Beside the Fire. In 1988 the Historic Sites and Monuments Board of Canada designated Anahareo's cabin at Prince Albert National Park as a National Historic Site.
