The Parks / Ontario / Georgian Bay Islands National Park



 

According to native legend Kitchi-Kiwana, the last of a race of giants, fell with a mountain in his arms which shattered into the 30 000 islands. The indentations of his shoulders can be seen on his favourite island, Beausoleil, where he returned to sleep each night. When he died, the natives covered him with rocks to form what is now called Giant's Tomb Island. The flickering northern lights can be seen whenever his spirit visits the islands and the Great God Manitou lights fires to guide him.
