The Ojibwe are one of the largest groups of Native Americans and First Nations on the North American continent. Sault Ste. Marie is a cross-border region in Canada and the United States. Paul Kane (September 3, 1810 - February 20, 1871) was an Irish-born Canadian painter famous for his paintings of First Nations peoples in the Canadian West and in the Columbia District. A self-educated artist, Kane trained himself by copying European masters on a study trip through Europe. The first trip (1845) took him from Toronto to Sault Ste. Marie and back. His second trip (1846-48) from Toronto across the Rocky Mountains to Fort Vancouver and Fort Victoria. Kane produced more than 100 oil paintings, although he often embellished them, departing from the accuracy of his field sketches in favor of more dramatic scenes.
