I was born in Sault, Michigan, adopted and raised on Wikwemikong First Nation on Manitoulin Island. The only language we spoke in the home was Ojibwe; I didn’t know how to speak English until I started school at 6 yrs old.
I grew up in Hawk Junction, Ontario with my parents Cecile Soulier and Harold Armstrong (WWII), four siblings and a huge extended family of relatives and friends. We all worked hard to help contribute to the family’s livelihood and growth.
