|About Aamjiwnaang Families
Please sign in to see more.
The following names are descendants of the original families who settled at Aamjiwnaang at the time of the Treaty of 1827, and those who settled shortly after from The Black River Reserve in Michigan, and other places such as Saginaw. 18 Chiefs and Headmen signed that Treaty on behalf of 440 people, and they settled on Walpole Island, Kettle Point, Stony Point, Sarnia Reserve, and the Black River. Most of the family lines at Aamjiwnaang trace back to 8 of those Chiefs. The information provided is as accurate as possible taken from many sources. Several names have spelling variations as do birthdates etc. I used what appeared most common. There is much work to do before it's complete, however much is done. I welcome any suggested edits.
