Welcome to the website of the Chippewas of Nawash Unceded First Nation. This website is a platform for our local governance to communicate with the Band membership, and a resource portal for issues of the Saugeen Ojibway, including joint resource management, fisheries and land claims.

In this challenging period, Chief, Council and Band governance understand how important it is for us to keep the community informed about the pandemic and our efforts to keep the community safe. We will post news, updates and instructions here as frequently as necessary. Please check back often.
