We strive to make good decisions for the land, waters, and all of Creation based on our Anishinabe worldview. Our decisions are rooted in our teachings, representative of the roles and responsibilities of our Clan System and guided by the principles of the Seven Grandfather Teachings (dabaadendiziwin Humility , gwekwaadziwin Honesty , mnaadendimowin Respect , aakwa’ode’ewin Bravery , nbwaakaawin Wisdom , debwewin Truth , and zaagidwin Love ).
Our management of Shawanaga Island will be based on several overarching goals, including:
- Protect, conserve, and restore biodiversity, ecosystems and culture
- Foster cross-cultural exchange and learning opportunities
- Empower Shawanaga members to continue using and have greater access to Shawanaga Island
As we continue developing our management plan for the Island, we will provide more details and interactive features for you to explore on this page. Check back soon!
