Indian Wisdoms

On our trip to the Kawarthas we went to Petroglyphs Provincial Park. It has the largest collection of ancient First Nations petroglyphs (rock carvings) in Ontario. The carvings were created in the pre-Columbian era and represent aspects of First Nations mysticism, including shamans, animals, and the Great Spirit. A documentary center tells us about the beliefs and wisdoms of the native people living in this area. Please click here to go to a short collection of these texts.
