About Us

The Anishinaabe were here well before the Royal Proclamation of 1763, Treaty
of Niagara 1764 and most recent Treaty 2 1871.

The purpose of this Treaty was to protect the territory and “….to open up to settlement and immigration a tract of country bounded and described hereinafter mentioned, and to obtain the consent thereto of her Indian subjects inhabiting the said tract, and to make treaty and arrangements with them, so that there be peace and good will…” and to be compensated for the land taken!

At an assembly of the Anishinaabe Agowidiiwinan Treaty No. 2 represented by the
Council of Chiefs held at the Lake Manitoba First Nation in June 12 & 13, 2018, after considering the complexities of the situation, the Chiefs resolved that:

Anishinaabe Agowidiiwinan would promote the formation of a collective
consisting of all First Nations in Treaty 2 Territory. The collective would include First Nations who had entered into Treaty 1, 2, 4 and 5. In addition to the Anishinaabe First Nations, the collective would include Cree, Dakotas, Nakota and other cultures and languages.
