Gichigami Lake Superior Map Print
This map is made in remembrance of Anita Rich, a dear friend and vital part of the Lakehead Outdoor Recreation, Parks and Tourism community. She moved her life to Thunder Bay in the pursuit of education with the dream of bettering her community back in Rigolet, Labrador. All proceeds from the sales of this map went towards a scholarship fund in Anita's honour to send more students from her town to post secodary education.
Like all my maps, I want to recognize the traditional territory of the Indigenous peoples we now live on. The North Shore of Gichigami/Lake Superior is the land of the Anishnaabe, and later on, the Métis. I have visited and come to know these places by the names depicted, but would like to acknowledge these places had Indigenous names prior to the arrival of settlers. I wish to acknowledge this reality so as not to further colonial erasure.
