Dreuilletes Gabriel 1610-1681 Studied At Jesuit College Toulouse
In 1643 came to Canada and spent a year in study of Algonquian language.
Soon became proficient in that tongue and accompanied wandering bands on
their hunting trips. In 1646 went on an expedition to the Abnaki tribes
of Maine, who had become interested in Christianity through converts of
the Sillery mission. Remained with the Abnaki one year and then removed
to district of Tadoussac, where he spent three years among the
Montagnais. In 1651 again sent to the Abnaki to form an alliance with
the New England colonies against the Iroquois, but in this was
unsuccessful. Laboured for twenty years in missions of Sillery, Three
Rivers, and other posts. In 1661 had charge of the mission to the Cree
tribes, and in 1672 spent some time in the mission of Sault Ste. Marie.
Died at Quebec. =Index=: (Bishop Laval era) One of the founders of the Sault Ste. Marie
