Photo: Pictographs Agawa Rock Lake Superior Provincial Park Ontario Canada

Ancient pictographs on Agawa Rock in Lake Superior Provincial Park were a form of communication and story telling by the Ojibwe People of Ontario, Canada.

Likely to be between 150-400 years old, the pictographs of Agawa Rock were created by the Ojibwe people by using powered haematite rock mixed with fish oil or animal fat.

Agawa Rock is like a massive stone canvas where travellers could leave messages about bison hunts or stories of voyages on Lake Superior.

The pictographs of Agawa Rock are situated 8 kilmetres north of Agawa Bay in Lake Superior Provincial Park, Ontario, Canada where a sign on the highway directs visitors to the carpark. From the carpark the rock is accessed by a short trail leading through a forest littered by large split boulders. The trail itself is short but slippery in places especially where small boulders are exposed and are used as part of the trail. Once out at the coastline of Lake Superior, a few more metres brings the visitor to Agawa Rock. ... continue below the picture...

... Caution should be excercised at this point as to view the pictographs one must walk out onto a slippery, sloping rock ledge. The trail is open from Mid May until Mid September and good walking shoes are a must! Note: the pictographs can only be reached when Lake Superior is calm.
