The story was collected by William Jones (1971-1909) from Marie Syrette (originally from Lake Nipigon) at Fort William, Ontario, sometime during 1903-1905. The texts were sent in 1916 to Truman Michelson, who was preparing the Ojibwa stories collected by Jones for publication the following year. According to Ives Goddard the dialect of the Ojibwa text is from the north shore region of Lake Superior (8/19/75).

Cataloger's remark: The detailed descriptive list of the Ojibway material is the result of comparing the texts in the notebooks and English translations with the published account. Many of the tables of contents for the individual notebooks are either incorrect or incomplete statements. The list is more detailed. Informants names have also been supplied from the published texts (which is arranged according to informants).
