Friderik Irenej Baraga
Baraga worked among the fur-traders and the Ottawa and, later, Ojibwe Indians from 1831 till his death and wrote a catechism in Ojibwe language as well as guide to its grammar and a dictionary (still in use today). His letters about his missionary work were published widely in Europe, and his book (written in German) History, Character, Customs and Manners of the North American Indians was important in presenting the Native American society to European readers.
Furthermore, he also worked to protect the Indians from being forced to relocate. A county and a town in the state of Michigan (USA) have been named after the bishop.
