Plaque Text
(transcribed by Wayne Adam)

For thousands of years Aboriginal people have lived and gathered on the banks of the Rainy River at Kay-Nah-Chi-Wah-Nung, "place of the long rapids". Here traces of Ojibway villages are found among the burial mounds and village sites of more ancient Aboriginal peoples. Also known as Manitou Mounds, this place was at the centre of an continent-wide Aboriginal trading network. Kay-Nah-Chi-Wah-Nung is sacred to the Ojibway and to other First Peoples of North America, thus marking an enduring spirituality.
