Danièle Montour - or Dany for short - was born to the Chippewa-Cree tribe stationed in the Rocky Boy Indian Reservation found in northern Montana. Dany is a mix of the Ojibwe (Chippewa), Plains Cree, and Métis peoples located on this reservation. Through her Métis ancestry, Dany has French & Scottish fur-trader ancestors who married and procreated with the indigenous Algonquin peoples of North America creating their own unique ethnic group & culture.
