Legend and Lore
“With the first snow, the Ojibwe begin a new season of storytelling to their children. Nanabozho, one of their greatest mythical figures, tells that he gave the tortoise a shell so that it would not be eaten by the otter and he covered the porcupine’s back with clay and stuck thorns in it to protect it from bear attacks.”
In the early 1900s, English trapper Archibald Belaney discovered our vast wilderness. Unable to return to his conventional way of life, he became one of the most effective apostles of the wilderness and even adopting a First Nations identity of Grey Owl.
Today, First Nations are a proud and powerful people, protecting and defending this beautiful Canadian wilderness in which we now can all discover and enjoy.
