National Aboriginal Day 2016
By Joshua LeClair

Celebrate Anishinaabe Culture at Pukaskwa National Park! Although traditions may differ throughout Anishinaabe Nation, there is a common thread that runs through them all. This common thread represents a kinship, and a string of lives that go back to the Original Man. Today, we use kinship to give us the strength necessary to keep our traditions alive. Through respect and honour we support each other on our journey of “Mino Bimaadiziwin”, the good life.
