Storyboard Text

  • My name is Catherine Sutton, and my life at the Credit Mission began when my family moved there when I was two years old. The Mission is a settlement of about 200 Ojibwa people who have also converted to Christianity.
  • I went to a Methodist school, where I was not allowed to practice my traditional customs. At this point, I had also lost all of my siblings from disease, and one from drowning.
  • Aunt Eliza, why are you so kind to me and the other girls in the Mission?
  • In England, while on a trip with my uncle and his wife, Eliza...
  • My sweet child, when your uncle and I got married, I found out I was not able to have children of my own, therefore I took it upon myself to befriend you. You are the daughter I will never have.
  • Upon my return from England, I married William Sutton, an English shoemaker. I was fifteen at the time.
  • William, are you certain that taking the deal from the Nawash Ojibwa was the right choice? I have heard many talking about merging with the Grand River Haudenosaunee.
  • This will be the best place for us and the children. We will have 200 acres of land, and we can farm food.
  • Two years later, I fell very ill...
  • I shouldn’t have worked so hard on the farm. I’ve overexerted myself. I must discuss a move with my family. I cannot go on here.
