Kijicho Manito Madaouskarini Algonquin First Nation, as part of the Algonquins of Ontario (AOO) are on a journey of survival, reconciliation, self-sufficiency & self-governance. This journey began in 1772 with the first Algonquin Petition submitted to the Crown.
The AOO are comprised of ten Algonquin Communities in Ontario:
- Antoine Nation
- Algonquins of Pikwakanagan First Nation
- Bonnechere Algonquin First Nation
- Algonquins of Greater Golden Lake First Nation
- Kijicho Manito Madaouskarini Algonquin First Nation
- Mattawa/North Bay Algonquin First Nation
- Ottawa Algonquin Community
- Shabot Obaadjiwan First Nation
- Snimikobi Algonquin First Nation
- Whitney and Area Algonquins
The ten communities of the AOO are represented by sixteen Algonquin Negotiation Representatives (ANRs) who are elected by Algonquin Voters for three-year terms. The ANRs include the Chief and Council of the Algonquins of Pikwakanagan First Nation and one representative from each of the nine other Algonquin Communities.
Based on a Protocol signed in 2004, these communities are working together to create a modern-day treaty with the governments of Ontario and Canada.
