The second photograph is of the Ashkewe brothers. Frank Ashkewe (Pedequahum, COMING THUNDER) and Albert Ashkewe (Weesug) arrived at Shingwauk on October 6, 1878, from Cape Croker, Ontario. Frank and Albert were the sons of Solomon Ashkewe of the Ojibway tribe and Methodist Church. Frank trained to be a mason while Albert trained to be a carpenter. When he arrived at Shingwauk, Frank spoke little English but made fair progress over a year and a half. In May of 1880, Frank left Shingwauk and by 1889 he was married
and farming. Albert was idle and had a bad disposition. At the age of 13, Albert broke into a store and
then ran away from Shingwauk. He spent three years at the school. In June of 1882, Albert left
Shingwauk and was shortly after sent to the penitentiary for stealing horses.
