Patrick Madahbee Grand Council

THUNDER BAY – Leaders Ledger- Grand Council Chief Madahbee offers an update from the Anishinabek Nation.

The Chief is speaking out against the efforts by the Conservative government, and how they will impact First Nations people, treaty rights, and responsibilities.

The Anishinabek Nation incorporated the Union of Ontario Indians (UOI) as its secretariat in 1949. The UOI is a political advocate for 39 member First Nations across Ontario. The Union of Ontario Indians is the oldest political organization in Ontario and can trace its roots back to the Confederacy of Three Fires, which existed long before European contact.

The UOI represents 39 First Nations throughout the province of Ontario from Golden Lake in the east, Sarnia in the south, Thunder Bay and Lake Nipigon in the north. The 39 First Nations have an approximate combined population of 55,000 citizens, one third of the province of Ontario’s aboriginal population.
