Mattagami First Nation

The Mattagami First Nation is an Anishnaabe First Nation - mainly Ojibwe, Oji-Cree and some Odawa - in the Canadian province of Ontario. The First Nation members of the community primarily live on the Mattagami 71 reserve in the Sudbury District near Gogama. The on-reserve population is approximately 100 residents.

Mattagami First Nation is part of the Wabun Tribal Council, a political organization which is also part of the Nishnawbe-Aski Nation (NAN), which represents the Treaty 9 area. The current chief of the Mattagami First Nation is Walter Naveau.

The reserve has its own elementary school, while high school students are bused to Timmins.
