This summer, we traveled to Thunder Bay and enjoyed the view of the city from the top of Mount McKay at the city’s South End. The view of lake Superior and the city itself is magnificent, but what really caught my eye was a sculpture honouring First Nations ancestry. Two wooden carved First Nations women, painted yellow, gaze out to the East towards the sleeping giant, over the Fort William First Nation Reserve. In Ojibway, Mount McKay is called Animiki wadjiw, meaning “Mountain Abode of Thunder,” which sounds pretty impressive.
