Marie of the Incarnation (Marie Guyart) 28 Oct 1599 - 30 Apr 1672 was a French Ursuline nun, at age 22 she came to New France to undertake the mission.   Both the French colonists and the local people of the First Nations sought the education of their daughters by the nuns. The nuns were soon able to teach in the Huron, Algonkian, Montagnais, and Iroquois tongues.  One of these children was my own ancestral grandmother Marie-Olivier-Sylvestre Manitouabeouich.
