Batchewana First Nation
The Batchewana First Nation of Ojibways is an Anishnaabe community located near present day Sault Ste. Marie. Their traditional lands run along the eastern shore of Lake Superior, from Batchewana Bay to Whitefish Island. They were reserved this land in the 1850 Robinson Huron Treaty, but surrendered most of it under the 1859 Pennefather Treaty. Through purchase and land claims, it has reclaimed some traditional territories, including the distinct communities of Goulais Bay 15A, Obadjiwan 15E, Rankin Location 15D and Whitefish Island.
