About Chief William Yellowhead

William Yellowhead (1760-1865), known as Misko Aki or “Red Earth”, was an Anishinaabe leader in what is now Southern Ontario. His traditional territory stretched from East Toronto, through Lake Simcoe, and to hunting grounds in Muskoka, Ontario (the township is named after Yellowhead).While a British loyalist during the War of 1812, Yellowhead also led his people through some of the most oppressive periods of British colonization.
