Artist's Description

BEST VIEWED LARGE
Georgian Bay (French: baie Georgienne) (Ojibway: Manidoowi-zaaga`igan or Waasaagamaa is a large bay of Lake Huron, located in Ontario, Canada. The main body of the bay lies east of the Bruce Peninsula and Manitoulin Island.
The shores and waterways of the Georgian Bay were, and are, the domain of the Anishinaabeg First Nations peoples to the North and Huron-Petun (Wyandot) to the south. The bay was thus a major Algonquian-Huron trade route. Samuel de Champlain, the first European to explore and map the area in 1615-1616, called it “La Mer douce” (the calm sea). It was named “Georgian Bay” (after King George IV) by Lieutenant Henry Wolsey Bayfield of the Royal Navy in 1822.
