In May 1897, Almighty Voice, a member of the One Arrow Willow Cree, died violently when Canada's North—West Mounted Police shelled the fugitive's hiding place.
Since then, his violent death has spawned a succession of conflicting stories - from newspaper features, magazine articles and pulp fiction to plays and film.
Almighty Voice has been maligned, misunderstood, romanticized, celebrated, and invented.
Indeed, there have been many Almighty Voices over the years. What these stories have in common is that the Willow Cree man mattered. Understanding why he mattered has a direct bearing on reconciliation efforts today.
