About Us

The Aamjiwnaang First Nation (formally known as Chippewas of Sarnia) is a First Nations community of about 2300 Chippewa (Ojibwe) Aboriginal peoples  (850 of which live on Reserve). We are located on the St. Clair River, 3 miles south of the southern tip of Lake Huron in the city limits of Sarnia southwestern Ontario, Canada – just across the United States border from Port Huron, Michigan.

Our heritage language is Ojibwa.

The name Aamjiwnaang, (pronounced am-JIN-nun) means “at the spawning stream.”
