Kay-Nah-Chi-Wah-Nung has deep cultural and spiritual meaning to the Ojibway of the Rainy River First Nations and all Indigenous peoples throughout North America. These lands hold the record of 8,000+ years of recurring use or habitation and contains the largest group of burial mounds and associated village sites in Canada.

The Centre is owned and operated by Rainy River First Nations and offers interpretive tours and galleries, a collections space with over 16,000 artifacts, a gift shop that showcases artwork by local Indigenous artists, and a restaurant with a menu featuring traditional Anishinaabe ingredients. The Centre is an educational resource for the community, and allows Rainy River First Nations to educate visitors about Ojibwe history, language, geography, culture, and traditions. Through these activities, the site continues to serve as a gathering place, a role it has played for thousands of years. The history and culture of Rainy River First Nations are integral to the decisions and overall approach at Kay-Nah-Chi-Wah-Nung.

Designated a National Historic Site of Canada in 1969, its importance has been acknowledged for generations by all cultures and peoples who have lived, travelled, and admired the majestic Manidoo Ziibi or Spirit River (Rainy River). The Place of the Long Rapids has deep cultural and spiritual meaning to Indigenous peoples throughout North America. The Anishinaabeg of Rainy River First Nations are the guardians of this rich heritage, a legacy that has been passed on through the generations and will continue through our grandchildren.
