Kenora, Ontario, Canada 18

Description : This region has been a centre of human activity for the past 8,000 years owing to the plentiful resources available here. The earliest inhabitants were wandering hunters pursuing big game animals. By the time the first European explorers arrived in the late 17th century, the natives living on the shores of the lake were more settled than their ancestors, and relied on hunting, fishing, and gathering for their livelihood. The natives referred to the north end of the lake as Wauzhushk Onigum, which literally translated means portage to the country of the muskrat.
