Pet­ro­glyphs and Pic­tographs

Kayak (Canada) - - BACKYARD HISTORY -

Although there are First Na­tions paint­ings on rock faces in nearly ev­ery prov­ince and ter­ri­tory, the largest num­bers of these pic­tographs are found in cen­tral and north­east­ern On­tario and in the south and along the coast of Bri­tish Columbia. Known as The Teach­ing Place, peace­ful Pet­ro­glyphs Pro­vin­cial Park in cen­tral On­tario is the best place in Canada to see these an­cient rock carv­ings.
