ACKNOWLEDGEMENT AND COMMITMENT STATEMENT We acknowledge that the land on which The Muse is set is the traditional territory of the Anishinaabe, territory covered by Treaty #3, signed in 1873, and the Treaty Adhesion signed by the Métis in 1875. The Muse commits to embrace and live the values known as The Seven Grandfathers – respect, love, truth, bravery, wisdom, generosity and humility – values we all esteem. It is our commitment that we will, to the best of our ability, live out these values in our work and purposes so that we can build and strengthen relationships with Indigenous communities and individuals; represent their history and culture accurately and respectively; involve their members in our work from a position of humility and an attitude of learning so that what we do and present here at the Museum and at the Art Centre will be honest and honouring. Come and visit the museum to learn more about the intriguing history of Lake of the Woods.
Our daily cruise starts from Kenora’s scenic waterfront which takes you past Coney Island’s beautiful public beach, then heads south on a spectacular circle route of the northern section of famed Lake of the Woods (14,500 islands, 65,000 miles of shoreline). We’ll take you through picturesque channels and bays to luxurious private summer homes, and peaceful, unspoiled, wilderness areas. Watch for resident bald eagles and other wildlife that regularly come into view. The ship is both heated and air conditioned to ensure comfort in any weather. You’ll return through mystical “Devil’s Gap” to complete this 2 or 2 1/2 hour on the water experience. And water is what Sunset Country is all about. Small wonder then, the M.S. Kenora Cruise is the leading attraction for visitors to the Lake of the Woods region
