Canada | In first-of-its-kind deal, Parks Canada cedes half of its ownership of NHS to First Nation

As Wayne McKenzie leans in to take a closer look at the twisted cedar branches off the coast of Lake Timiskaming in northwestern Quebec, he starts to sing a prayer.


McKenzie's Algonquin ancestors are buried at the foot of these woods. Legend has it that their souls live on in the trees. The trees are usually curved, which is said to be because the elders dance, says McKenzie, who is chief of Timiskaming First Nation.
