If the Earth could speak, she would tell the story of her Stewards in the Kitchissippi Valley, the Omàmiwininì Anishinàbe (indigenous words for the Algonquin people of the Ottawa & Mattawa Rivers Watershed). We moved along the Ottawa River and its tributaries, from Long Sault Rapids up to Lake Nipissing ,for more than 10,000 years before we suffered European contact in 1613.

But as you read about the history of Upper and Lower Canada, and the settlement of the Ottawa River Valley, you will hear little about us. Our oral tradition, beliefs and lifestyle, that had served us well from time immemorial, was rarely understood by the settlers, and so, it was either not acknowledged or treated with contempt.Nevertheless, even after these 400 years of colonialization, we survive, eager to reclaim our land, our culture, and our philosophy of life.
