What exactly is a Gitche Gumee?

If you were a kid living in Michigan during the 50s and 60s you learned the poem ‘The Song of Hiawatha’. “By the shore of Gitche Gumee, By the shining Big-Sea-Water….”

Gitche Gumee is Lake Superior. Superior is the place where the wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald sits on the bottom. Superior is one of the five Great Lakes. With 20% of all of the fresh water in the world Michigan is an amazing place to live. #puremichigan
