Nagadjitòdjig Akì (Guardians)

Using a two eyes seeing approach, we use traditional knowledge and western science to monitor activities that are taking place on our ancestral traditional territory. It is our cultural responsibility as Anishinabeg to care for our land and waters therefore, Guardians play an important role in the health of our territory. 

What we do
We work with non-government organizations such as Ottawa River Keeper and Water First to monitor the Ottawa river shed which encompasses our traditional territory. Guardians also carry out aerial moose surveys in partnership with the government of Quebec and continuously monitor critical moose habitat. Patrolling, collecting data, working with Species at Risk, participating in Search and Rescue operations, and monitor wildlife habitat and waterways are some of the duties we carry out year round.
