Namaygoosisagagun First Nation (NFN) is a small remote access community in Northwestern Ontario within the Robinson Superior Treaty of 1850. NFN has been in existence since time immemorial, but has yet to receive official reserve status, although it has applied and negotiated for official band status and reserve lands through the provisions of the Indian Act. NFN members have historically lived near Onamakawash Lake on the north shore of Collins Lake, northwest of Lake Nipigon and continue to maintain a thriving, healthy community in the north. The name “Namaygoosisagagun” comes from Namegosi-zaaga’igan, meaning “Trout Lake”, which is the Anishinaabemowin name for Collins Lake. Access to NFN is limited to train, portage trails, and snow machines in the winter. With limited access comes challenges, but it also makes for a strong and resilient community. There are no stores within the community so many people rely on the land for sustenance. Therefore, protection of their traditional lands is one of the community’s main priorities. NFN has 140 registered members, with approximately 30 members live in the community.
