Kay-Nah-Chi-Wah-Nung Historical Centre is owned and operated by Rainy River First Nations and offers indoor and outdoor interpretive tours, a collections space with over 16,000 artifacts, a gift shop that showcases artwork by local Indigenous artists, and a restaurant with a menu featuring traditional Anishinaabe ingredients.
Designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1970, the site contains the largest concentration of Indigenous burial mounds in North America. The importance of this site has been acknowledged for generations by all cultures and peoples who have lived, travelled, and admired the majestic Manidoo Ziibi or Spirit River (Rainy River). The Centre is an educational resource for the community, and allows Rainy River First Nations to educate visitors about Anishinaabe history, language, geography, culture, and traditions. Through these activities, the site continues to serve as a gathering place, a role it has played for thousands of years.
