Ma'iingan ( Ojibwe for Wolf ) is native Indian guide introduced in Season 2 of Murdoch Mysteries.

Appearances and Mentions


  • Ma'iingan, a Native American, who becomes a murderer in his quest for revenge.
  • It is implied that he was a shaman before the time of the missionaries whereupon he became a guide at a hunting lodge.
  • One evening on a full moon, he was accidentally shot but the men involved assumed his wound was fatal and so left him to die without reporting the incident. His anger kept him alive; He 'reclaimed' his identity by dressing in wolf-skin – either to become a shaman again or perhaps because his name means wolf.
  • As Ma'iingan, he executes his revenge, killing five out of the six men who were there on that fateful night. After the last of them is arrested, Ma'iingan allows the police to take his life for his quest has ended, choosing to die in the fight rather than being hanged.
