Description

From the Government of Ontario, "Ontario First Nations Maps" web page, online: https://www.ontario.ca/page/ontario-first-nations-maps :

The Ontario First Nations map shows the locations of:

  • First Nation communities: listed by band number and cultural affiliation (e.g., Algonquin, Cree, Ojibway)
  • Tribal Councils (a grouping of bands with common interests who join together to provide advice and programs to their members)
  • reserves (land set aside for bands under the Indian Act and treaty agreements)
  • political organizations (e.g., Union of Ontario Indians, Grand Council Treaty 3)
  • land covered by specific treaties

The border shows symbols that have special meaning to First Nations in Ontario.
