About Frank Shawanakaam Wandahsega

Frank Wandahsega is # 427 on the 1907 Wooster Roll where he is identified as the son of 56 year old Peter Wandahsega # 424 (who is the son of 88 year old Mrs. Mary Wandahsega # 428). Wooster reports Frank's traditional name as "Shawanakaam" meaning "South thunder" but that name, its context and meaning require scrutiny and comment by those with expertise in nuances of the Anishinaabemowin language, Potawatomi culture and history of the Wandahsega family.

Wooster reports that Frank Wandahsega was born in Canada but as of 1907 when he was age 9 he was living at Bark River, Michigan where he held NO rights in Canada.
