Richard, can you recommend any books on Wyandotte history? I hope there’s still a rich oral history but it would be lovely to have it written down as well. As you may remember, it is probable that I have an ancestor from the Wyandotte in Canada. Can you point me to any written resources? And if no such work exists, when will you be publishing! 🙂

a couple of great books on wendat/wandat history of Canada would be “Heritage of the Circle” by Georges Sioui (Wendat Historian)
and the large work by Bruce Trigger called “Children of Aataentsic” .
If you are interested in Wyandot mythology and traditional stories collected in the States in 1800s and 1900s i can send you a .pdf file of
“Huron and Wyandot Mythology” published in early 1900s by C M Barbeau. Its a real collectors item if you find a copy online!
