The Mushkegowuk and Anishinaabe Peoples and Treaty No. 9
Wachiye! (hello) Ni mi nwe nihtn ota e ih tayan (I'm happy you are here)
This is the story of the Mushkegowuk and Anishinaabe Peoples of North-Eastern and North-Western Ontario, Canada and the signing of Treaty No. Nine (James Bay Treaty) in the indigenous territory known as Nishnawbe Aski Nation (People’s Land). Our goal is to provide you with an understanding of the historical times in which Mushkegowuk and Anishinaabe peoples signed Treaty No. Nine, and how this treaty has impacted the lives of our people.
We are very committed to documenting Elder knowledge that is slipping away in so many communities across Canada. Elder and traditional knowledge is a key resource that has been used to create the content for ‘On the Path of the Elders'.
Take your time now and explore the site. Jump right in and play the game, watch a video, view some photos or listen to a story. Read the essay. It contains a great deal of important, cultural information that will give you a firm understanding of the Mushkegowuk and Anishinaabe Peoples. Our hope is that this site enriches your life and you come to appreciate, more deeply, the history and culture of our people.
Walk with us, on the Path of the Elders.
