Dr. Canon Edward Ahenakew (1885–1961) was a Cree Anglican minister, writer, storyteller, and preserver of the Cree language. Born on the Sandy Lake Indian Reserve (now the Ahtahkakoop Cree Nation) to Baptiste Ahenakew and Ellen Ermineskin, his contribution to Cree literature is foundational and widely respected. Best known for the“Cree Trickster Tales” and Voices of the Plains Cree, Ahenakew was the author of Black Hawk,  believed to be the first novel written by an Indigenous author in Canada.
