The location is on crystal clear White Otter Lake between the towns of Ignace and Atikokan. The only way to access this heritage site is via canoe or float plane in the summer and by snowmobile in the winter.

Harvesting wildlife for food provide us with an opportunity to bond with family and friends while gaining valuable life lessons that only nature could teach.
