Explores the ways in which French and Native men and women reimagine kinship and negotiate cross-cultural encounters in early seventeenth-century New France.

"The book is an in-depth study of four persons who were emblematic in this complex, violent, and creative history of cultural contestation. It is an ambitious and engaging study of colonial documents (records of both explorers and missionaries) within which Poirier reveals the voices of historically muted Wendat peoples. She is not simply reading between the lines, but also ‘against the text,’ discovering a story that we have not heard before. This book promises to be the most important (and corrective) study of the period since Bruce Trigger’s groundbreaking The Children of Aataentsic."—Jennifer I. M. Reid, author of Religion and Global Culture
