The Legend of Mackinac Island
Legend and folklore of the Great Lakes region tell us that long ago, there was a large great turtle who floated quietly and gently upon a world made only of water. His name was Makinauk. One day a great spirit told him that he must lend his back for the creation of a brand new world- a place that has since become known as Mackinac Island.
