Story

My family heritage has been taken away from us. We, the Algonquins of Ontario, Canada have so little heritage left. All that is left is the land. What is the land like? I needed to explore that which used to belong to my family since time immemorial. Funny how it's been forgotten

Entry Description

Shot in the early morning mists of summer. This is an image of my family's ancestral land which now a provincial park.
