On the shores of Golden Lake, 10 minutes from The Deakins B & B, lies the first nation community of Pikwakanagan. The first nation Algonquins are proud of their origins and strive not only to protect their culture, language and heritage but to also share the Algonquin community with their many visitors who learn about their rich history at the Spirit of the Canoe museum which is open year-round. The most spectacular display of Algonquin culture is the annual pow wow, a spiritual ceremonial celebration and social event, which attracts countless visitors the world-over during August.
