Land Claim

For the last 30 years, Biigtigong Nishnaabeg has been working towards resolving our outstanding land claim where we have maintained that we were not signatories to the 1850 Robinson Superior Treaty. Currently, the Land Claim is in litigation in Superior Court. Through this process over the years, the community has invested a significant amount of money into research, history, genealogy, land use and occupancy studies, and legal costs. The incredible commitment by past and current Chiefs and Councils continue to keep this important project a priority for the First Nation going forward as we continue to assert our Aboriginal Rights and Title within our ancestral lands.
