In many Indigenous protocols, it is a sign of respect to offer gratitude to the land and people of the territory you are visiting.

The Families of the Temagami First Nation have occupied the lands and waters in the Temagami area as stewards for thousands of years. The Temagami First Nation is the Body Politic of the 800 Teme-Augama Anishnabai, who are presently recognized as Indians under the Indian Act of Canada. The Bear Island Indian Reserve community, which includes 250 permanent residents and the government institutions of the Temagami First Nation, preserves the integrity of Teme-Augama Anishnabai as the stewards of n’Daki Menan.

Temagami is known for deep clear lakes, ancient rocks and last surviving stands on Earth of old-growth white and red pines
