Boozhoo, Aanii, Greetings,
“Our Past – Our Present – Our Future”
Chippewas of Sarnia was our former name, however, currently we are now known as “Aamjiwnaang First Nation”. Aamjiwnaang is commonly known as “the place at the spawning stream – where the water flows spiritually like a braid”. Our unique community has grown to approximately 2,300 members. We are situated along the shores of the St. Clair River, within the boundaries of the City of Sarnia, Ontario.
Our Leaders and Community have worked together to build a strong community which include our Aamjiwnaang First nation Administration Complex, Public Works Department, E’Mino Bmaad-Zijib Gamig Health Centre, the Maawn Doosh Gumig Youth and Community Centre, Chippewa Industrial Developments Ltd. Park & Branch Office, Seniors Complex and Aamjiwnaang Binoojiinyag Kino Maagewgamgoons Day Care and JK/SK Preschool. We welcome you to learn about our growing community, our heritage, our past, our present and our future.
