MESSAGE FROM OGIMAA DUKE PELTIER WIIKWEMIKONG UNCEDED TERRITORY

The Anishinaabek people of Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory have lived on Manitoulin Island since time immemorial. The village of Wiikwemkoong is on the eastern portion of the island and along the beautiful and pristine shores of Georgian Bay. Our vibrant community expresses its Anishinaabek culture through several events that draws visitors from all over the world. Some of those events include the annual cultural festival, fall fair, ice fishing derby, traditional pow-wow, and aboriginal theatre in the ruins of a historic Church.

I invite you all to visit Wiikwemkoong and, also, our beautiful Point Grondine Park which is situated near Killarney, Ontario. Enjoy the wilderness through one of our many private and community operated tourism services. Our land base provides plenty of opportunities for a both a wilderness experience and to enjoy the culture of our people.

Point Grondine Park is operated as a recreational park and has over 7000 hectares of scenic natural wilderness landscape, old growth pine forest, stunning river vistas and eight interior lakes explore. The picturesque water trails flowing along the coast of Georgian Bay invite you to many canoe routes, hiking trails and backcountry campsites located throughout the interior of the Park. Hike, canoe or sea kayak along the traditional routes of the Anishinaabek people and be ready to be captivated by this historic and majestic place.

We are conveniently accessible by road and by boat. Our Tourism Information Center is centrally located and provides travellers with in-depth information pertaining to Manitoulin Island. Take part in our guided historic experiences or stop in our gift center for authentic locally hand-made crafts.

We look forward to having you as our guests!

Stars over Killarney A Great Success

Point Grondine Park and Killarney Provincial Park collaborated in a Star Gazing event dubbed "Stars Over Killarney"

The event synchronized the science of Astrology and Anishinabek Constellation Teachings that have been passed down since we've been able to watch the cosmos pass by mother earth.

"The event was hosted at Killarney Provincial Park with presentations made by Elders and guides from the Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory, Wikwemikong Tourism, and Point Grondine Park (kudos to Naomi Mishibinijima from Wikwimikong Tourism, who greatly assisted in the organization of the many elders and guides)! Will Morin, professor of Indigenous studies at the University of Sudbury, was a key organizer and presenter. We were also privileged to have the Waasa Naabin Youth Centre join us as highly enthusiastic guests.
