    Description

    Boozhoo. On behalf of the 25 First Nation Communities in the Treaty #3 Territory, I welcome you to our homeland. Our territory covers 55,000 square miles of the Lake Winnipeg watershed in northwestern Ontario and southeastern Manitoba. These lands, forests, and waterways have sustained our people from time immemorial, and even today we continue to live in the forest. These lands are part of our spirituality. We, the Anishinabeg of Treaty #3, accept the responsibility from the Creator to protect these lands, and in the words of your conference, "sustain the land and its resources."
