The Agawa Rock Pictographs are sheer rock faces with paintings said to date from the 17th and 18th centuries. The pictographs include depictions of canoes and animals, including an animal called “Misshepezheiu” which is also known as “The Great Lynx” and “The spirit of the water”. These images demonstrate the connection of the Ojibwe to the surrounding waters in the area. The Agawa Rock Pictographs can still be seen today by visitors who complete the steep hour long hike to the painted rock faces. Visitors are also asked to respect the landmark as it is a sacred site, and to keep from touching the pictographs in order to help preserve them.
