Our Lake St. John community is located on the traditional territories of the Mississauga, Huron-Wendat, and Anishinaabe Nations. The Anishinaabe include the Ojibwe, Odawa, and Pottawatomi Nations, collectively known as the Three Fires Confederacy. We would like to acknowledge the enduring presence of the Indigenous Peoples of this region, specifically, the Chippewa Tri–Council First Nations comprised of the Beausoleil, the Chippewas of Rama, and the Chippewas of Georgina Island First Nations. The Chippewas of Rama First Nation are our closest neighbours and are a part of our community, with part of their First Nation located here on the eastern shore of Lake St. John. We acknowledge that this land is covered by the Williams Treaties First Nations.
We encourage all to engage with and learn about the history of this land and its Peoples.
