Ancient pictographs grace the steep rock faces of a number of islands located near Duck Bay Lodge. These curious remnants of early native culture are believed to be up to 1,000 years old. Both the substances used to make the paint (berry juice, spruce gum, fish oils or tallow, and certain minerals) and the subject matter of the drawings themselves, present mysteries to scientists.
