Temagami First Nation

Temagami First Nation is located on Bear Island, Lake Temagami, Ontario, Canada. It is home to a portion of the Aboriginal (Anishinaabe) community, the Teme-Augama Anishnabai ("the deep water people"). The 1.8-square-mile (4.7 km2) island is the seconed largest in Lake Temagami after Temagami Island. It represents only a small portion of the Anishinaabe's Nindakiiminan ("our land"; locally synocped as Ndakiimnan or "n'daki menan"), which includes ten thousand square kilometers of land in the area. The Band Council of Temagami First Nation is Chief Roxanne Ayotte, 2nd Chief John McKenzie, Councillor Arnold Paul, Councillor Jamie Saville, Councillor Marty Pridham and Councillor Steven Laronde.

Maple Mountain in Lady Evelyn-Smoothwater Provincial Park is a sacred site of the Temagami First Nation. They called the mountain Chee-bay-jing, meaning "the place where the spirits go". It was the most powerful in their realm.
