Victoria Callihoo was born before Canada was a nation, and was a grandmother by the time Alberta became a province.

She traveled with her family on the buffalo hunt on a Red River cart when the herds were so numerous they resembled a moving brown sea.

She embraced her Metis heritage and shared her stories with her children and her friends.

Through her stories, she inspires us with the perspective of a strong woman in the early days of our country.

She gives us a window onto the world of the Metis and provides us with an image of what it was like to be a woman during the time of the buffalo hunt.
