Indigenous Experiences in Peterborough & the Kawarthas

Discover a True First

Before it became known as Peterborough, this area was called Nogojiwanong, Ojibwa for “place at the end of rapids.”

The Odenabe or Otonabee, means “river that beats like a heart.” Today, indigenous culture and history is alive and well, and the descendants of this region’s first people continue to share their knowledge and culture with locals and visitors alike.
