Description From Owner:

  • Pop. 1,000. In Strathy T., Dist. ofTemagami, on the NE arm of L. Temagami and Hwy 11,92 km NW of North Bay.
  • In 1834 the Hudson's Bay Company opened a small trading post on nearby Bear I. The site was first known as Sandy Inlet.
  • A community grew on the lakeshore, and when a post office opened, it was named Temagami after the 86-square-mi. (225 sq. km) lake of the same name.
  • Temagami is a First Nations Peoples word meaning 'deep water.' Immediately south of Temagami in tiny Finlayson Point Provincial Park, a plaque honours Grey Owl, a conservationist, author, and lecturer who was also an unrepentant imposter.
  • He claimed to have been born in Mexico of an Apache mother, but it is believed he was born in England in 1888, son of George Belaney, a Scot.
  • He emigrated to the Temagami and Biscotasing area in 1906 and became a trapper, guide, and forest ranger.
  • He adopted First Nations Peoples ways and in 1925 married an Iroquois woman. He became well known through his writing and as a lecturer who used his woods lore for the cause of wildlife conservation.
