Du Vernet’s diary tells many stories about the people and places of the Rainy River, filtered through his missionary interests. The Ojibwe have long had their own stories of the river, and here we share videos from storytellers we have met on our visits to Kay-Nah-Chi-Wah-Nung. Art Hunter, our host on the river, told us how Kay-Nah-Chi-Wah-Nung is meaningful for him and helps him remember his people’s history. We will continue sharing stories on this page in the future.
