Kettle and Stony Point First Nation & Aamjiwnaang First Nation
We held our 2nd Taking Action! workshop in Kettle and Stony Point First Nation in February 2009. Youth from Aamjiwnaang First Nation and urban Aboriginal youth in surrounding areas were invited and participated as well.
Kettle and Stony Point First Nation is located in southwestern Ontario along the shores of Lake Huron, 35km from Sarnia, Ontario, near the Michigan border. The community has 1,000 members who live on the reserve and 900 who live off the reserve.
Aamjiwnaang First Nation is a community of about 850 Chippewa (Ojibwe) Aboriginal peoples, located in a reserve on the shores of the St. Clair River near Sarnia, Ontario in southwestern Ontario – just across the US border from Port Huron, Michigan. The name Aamjiwnaang, or more fully vocalised as Aamijiwanaang, means “at the spawning stream.”
Our Kettle Point Youth Coordinator, Kim Bressette, did a great job organizing the event.
