Rock Art in Ontario

Ontario has many parks with rock art. There are more than eight great sites to visit. It will be a nice introduction to Anishinaabe rock painting.

List of provincial parks:


Agawa Rock

Agawa Rock is one of Canada's most famous pictograph sites, found within Lake Superior Provincial Park. The area is also one of the most visited indigenous archaeological sites in Canada. The majority of paintings from the Agawa site are said to date from the 17th and 18th centuries. Pictographs are survived messages from the past. This is a sacred site where generations of Ojibwe have come to record dreams, visions and events. Agawa Rock is a sacred site. Please respect and preserve the pictographs. Do not touch the paintings.
