Indian Tent Circle

oil paint, 1996, 38"w x 38"h

On a canoe trip along Georgian Bay, we needed a rest from the cramped state of a loaded canoe and decided to get out and take a look over the small rock wall beside us. As few people would do this, we found the tent circles left by First Nations people, untouched from their summer fishing expeditions. The circles and wonderful barren landscape of flat rock were marked by stones that kept down the canvas tent edges. These must have been used for many years by successive groups and suggested the wholeness of their lives.
