About our Community
We are a progressive First Nation with strategic visioning, growth, prosperity and culture that find balance in the modern era of Anishnaabe life with the traditional value of their ancestors.
Boozhoo! Aniin! Welcome!
The Anishnaabe (Ojibway) of Biigtigong Nishnaabeg have lived, worked and existed on the lands off the shores of Chi-gamig (Lake Superior) and the inlands of the northern superior region since time immemorial.
Biigtigong Nishnaabeg is translated to “the place where the river erodes” and describes the unceded lands for which the community is located. A progressive First Nation with strategic visioning, growth prosperity and cultural traditions that strive to find balance in the modern era of the Anishnaabe while honoring the traditional values of their ancestors.
By now you have probably seen information circulating in the community and online about a Fisheries Study that will be taking place on the Pic River over the next 2 years.
Biigtigong Nishnaabeg Sustainable Development is launching a fisheries study on the Pic River. We are asking all community members who have fished the Pic Riv-er, including the mouth of the Pic River to complete a short survey.
If you have been instructed to self-isolate by the Thunder Bay District Health Unit and require any assistance please reach out.
