The Canadian Canoe Museum has been working closely with Michi Saagiig Nishnaabeg knowledge holders to translate the Museum’s name into Anishnaabemowin, the language of the territory, lands and waters on which the Museum is situated.
The name in Anishnaabemowin, “Jiimaan Kinomaagewin” translates to “Canoe Place of Learning” and our new trilingual name will be featured on the building for all to see. Anishnaabemowin has also been incorporated into our logo, which has also been refreshed to reflect our next chapter!
The Canadian Canoe Museum’s new logo pays tribute to the pictograph (mazinaawbikinigin) that inspired the Museum’s original logo, which is located on a rock face at Pictured Lake within the traditional territory of Fort William First Nations. Our new logo features a rock face icon with a ridged top inspired by the Canadian Shield, and waves or snow drifts along the bottom, with the pictograph in the middle.
This design honours the relationship between the Museum, the original pictograph, and the territory on which it lives, as well as the Indigenous origins of the canoe. It is also a beautiful visual representation of the Museum’s vision to connect people to the land, water, canoe, and each other.
