Sarett, born in Chicago of Polish and Lithuanian heritage, became interested early on in Native American culture and traditions, a passion which was reflected throughout his life and writings. He was adopted by the Chippewa Indians of the Lake Superior region and given the name Lone Caribou. Besides teaching English and public speaking at theÂ University of Illinois and Northwestern University,Â he served asÂ adviser on Indian affairs to the Department of the Interior and was a part-time park ranger and wilderness guide, and a horticulturalist. His poetry reflects a deep respect for natureÂ and for Native American culture.
