Indigenous Voices: Manitoulin Island, Canada

Manitoulin Island, in Ontario, is the largest freshwater island on the planet and is home to six Anishinaabe communities. Anong Beam is a painter who comes from a family of artists, and her creative work is intimately entwined with her home–she collects natural materials from the island to create paints with which to bring Manitoulin to life on her canvasses. “There’s a thrill to be able to share the island,” she says. To Beam, the Manitoulin experience is to be immersed in water, to be surrounded by the life and love of the natural world.

Canada is filled with natural spaces and experiences that inspire and nurture us: stunning Arctic landscapes, rainforest walks with local storytellers, and enchanting Northern Lights viewed from a seat around the campfire. Indigenous Canada’s travel experiences range from the urban to the remote, and they all encompass authentic culture from Indigenous peoples across Canada.
