The White Cedar is a medium-sized conifer. It was given the name Nokomis Giizhig by the Ojibwa, meaning Grandmother Cedar and was often the subject of scared legends. The Witch Tree, which still stands today, is growing out of a cliff face on Lake Superior in Minnesota. This was first described by a French explorer in 1731.
