It’s a pleasure to provide an introduction to our community on behalf of all of our citizens.
Wiikwemkoong Unceded Territory is a proud, progressive, and prosperous First Nation steeped in the Indigenous culture and language of the Anishinabek.
Our home is centred on Odawa Mnis and the surrounding islands in Lake Huron. Our lands are Unceded.
We have retained these lands for our future generations so that they can continue to be Anishinaabe. We have not relinquished any of our rights to any of the lands in the Great Lakes Basin to any Nation. We continue to govern the waters, air, and lands including Islands, as our ancestors have since time immemorial. These lands are the homelands of the Peoples of the Three Fires Confederacy: the Odawa, Ojibway and Potawatomi.
Like our ancestors before us, Wiikwemkoong continues to move forward, by building partnerships that reinforce our values and traditions with various organizations and local, provincial, and federal governments.
Please feel free to browse around our website and contact any our staff if you would like to know more. Gchi Miigwech.
