Our traditional and present day community is within the area of North Hastings County in the Province of Ontario. We have resided here since time immemorial. Historic records and original maps document our presence on the land back to first contact with European settlers arriving in the area. In the past our people adapted to the changes brought to our lands by colonialism. We are still adapting today as we work to build capacity and maintain our identity, renew our culture and express our heritage in both traditional and contemporary ways.
