The wolf, known as ma’iingan in the Ojibwe language, is considered a brother to the Anishinaabeg and features prominently in their creation story. 

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Ojibwe author Tom Peacock says he started out as a history person. He wrote Native American history books for school students and adults. But he says he had other stories in his head he wanted to get out. So, he turned to fiction — which in time led to “The Wolf’s Trail.”

“In a way it’s historical fiction, I suppose” he told Minnesota Public Radio News. “In a way, it’s not. It’s cultural fiction. I’m not sure what it is. I am not sure there’s a word for it.”
