Rabbit Rock

A 1903 photo of the Teme-Augama Anishnabai's sacred rock on Rabbit Lake. When the first dam was constructed in 1910, the eight-foot tall rock at Rabbit Point disappeared forever. This is one of only three photos, all in the Keewaydin Archives, known to exist. Little was known of the site until these photos were found. At first glance, the eye appears painted. It wasn't. It was a rare lichen-graph: lichen removed to create the image.
