Mamajuda Shoal is named after an indigenous woman who used to camp on Mamajuda Island during fishing season. The small island and its light house washed away because of erosion. The shoal is now a National Wildlife Refuge. Hennepin Point was once a repository for byproducts of chemical manufacturing. It is named after Father Louis Hennepin, a Roman Catholic Priest and Missionary who accompanied René-Robert Cavelier, Sieur de La Salle on an expedition to the Great Lakes region in the 17th century. I painted this using the Red-Purple/Blue/Yellow Major Chord from the Dudeen Color Triangle.
