Some years ago, this unusual stone was built into a wall of an old home in Beaconsfield, Quebec. The stone had been found nearby on the property, and then incorporated in the wall during masonry work. Barbara Barclay, the owner of the house in question, would like to know if this stone is the result of human art, or whether it was formed naturally. Please contact QAHN if you have any ideas!

Category: cultural heritage My name is Cassidy Decontie-Twenish and I am a member of Kitigan Zibi First Nations. I have chosen to present a picture of our Cultural Center on an early foggy morning located in Kitigan Zibi. Kitigan Zibi Anishinabeg First Nation reserve was established in 1851 by our first Ogima (Chief), Antoine Paginawatik (which means "tree split by lightning”). The Cultural Center has been created to honour, recognize and continue to teach the lifestyles of our ancient traditions.
