Prehistoric Lakeheaders by Alan Wade

Prehistoric Lakeheaders – The 90-Century Story of Pre-Contact Thunderbayans

Six thousand years before Tut was king in Egypt, people came for the very first time to live at the northwest corner of Lake Minong on the body of water we know today as Thunder Bay. This first community of Lakeheaders, the Stone Tool Thunderbayans, migrated from the American Midwest after global warming had melted the glacier that once covered northwestern Ontario and most of the Northern Hemisphere.

About Alan Wade:

In 1967 after getting a History BA from McMaster University in Hamilton, I packed my bags in Welland, Ontario, where I grew up, and headed north to Lakehead to teach that subject at Westgate Collegiate in Fort William, ON (part of present-day Thunder Bay).

After almost losing my sanity at that job, I took an accounting degree at Lakehead University. This led to a job at an accounting firm, but soon after starting I realized this profession was not for me. A few months later, I took a clerical position at the Abitibi Paper Company where I worked for 14 years. After Abitibi, I began teaching literacy skills to adults for 14 years at Confederation College, and 10 years at the Thunder Bay Literacy Group.

After 27 years of rejections from publishers on a number of different topics, I finally had some writing success in two local newspapers telling the story that had been staring me right in my face: my own community’s. I became increasingly interested in the Prehistoric Lakeheaders, which led to this book you have in your hand right now.
