UNESCO evaluators visited this fall

UNESCO evaluators, one from the U.S. and one from Finland, spent a week travelling by boat, truck, plane, helicopter and on foot across the length and breadth of Pimachiowin Aki to view the land first-hand and to meet the Anishinaabe people in all five First Nations communities in the proposed site.  Their reports will contribute to the final UNESCO decision in 2013.  The nomination document was submitted in January 2012 and a summary of that document is available on-line.

 

International experts spent a week travelling the land and meeting the people who developed the bid to UNESCO.  See some of the lessons Elders taught them about Thunderbirds in this video.
