About the Keweenaw


Objibwa for “to portage”, Keweenaw's name is attributed to the route the natives used when paddling birch bark canoes. The Keweenaw Peninsula is technically an island, separated from the rest of the UP by the Portage Canal at it's sister cities of Houghton and Hancock (50 miles south of Copper Harbor).
