Marie Miteouamigoukoué was born around 1632 in the Trois-Rivières area. She belonged to a Christian branch of the Weskarini who lived near the mission in Trois-Rivières under the protection of the French.
Marie’s first marriage was to a member of her band, a man called Assababich. They had at least three children together. However, in 1652 there was yet another horrific offensive on the part of the Iroquois, a raid that turned into a massacre, with the Iroquois winning the day. As a result, Assababich was killed and two of their children taken captive by the enemy. A daughter born in 1647, named Catherine, was baptized in November 1652 in Trois-Rivières, months after her father's death. Updated: 4/16/2016 8:54:34 PM
