The Place Where Michigan was Born

“We say life here is about drinking in the atmosphere; of looking up at the sky to see that night sky with the stars and the beauty, or to walk a trail and to think of those a thousand years earlier who walked it before you. It is the center of the Great Lakes, and it always has been.” – Cecil Pavlat, a cultural affairs expert and a member of the Sault Tribe of Chippewa Indians and lifelong resident of Sault Ste. Marie.
