Visit the Kay-Nah-Chi-Wah-Nung Historical Centre (Manitou Mounds) at nearby Rainy River First Nation - the location of a national historic site. An interpretive centre and tour of the ancient burial grounds will give you an appreciation of an ancient civilization. Tours of the First Nation's sturgeon hatchery can be arranged with a reservation. The Rainy River and Lake of the Woods were once considered one of the largest sturgeon fisheries in the world but are now regarded as sensitive breeding waters for this prehistoric fish.
