The Paint Hills Islands are located in James Bay, a part of the Qikiqtaaluk Region, in the Canadian territory of Nunavut. They are southwest of Wemindji, Quebec (Cree for "red ochre mountain"), a Cree community on Paint Hills Bay, and northeast of Solomons Temple Islands.[1]

In 1950, Thomas Henry Manning studied high tide and driftwood strand lines on Paint Hills Islands.[2]
