Algonquins of Pikwakanagan First Nation are invited to see how land-claim negotiations are going.
The Algonquins of Ontario (AOO) will be presenting the latest information at an event hosted at the Makwa Community Center in Pikwakanagan. The event is open to all members of the first nation and will take place on Saturday between 9 AM and 4:30 PM and on Sunday from 9 AM until 3 PM.
The weekend will feature discussions about Algonquin genealogy and family connections. There will also be a talk about the benefits of the land claim. An opportunity will be provided to discuss questions and concerns about the land claim.
The Algonquins of Ontario’s land claim includes some nine million acres of land from North Bay to the far eastern point of Ontario and encompasses nine upper tier counties. The AOO says that the treaty will provide certainty about the ownership, use and management of land and natural resources among them and every else in the settlement area. They add it will reaffirm the honour and pride of the Algonquin people, ensure their survival and prosperity, and raise awareness about their history and culture.
