Lac des Mille Lacs First Nation (LDMLFN) Reserve 22A1 is located approximately 135 km west of Thunder Bay, ON. LDMLFN Reserve 22A2 is located approximately 20 km west of the township of Upsala, Ontario. The First Nation is governed by a duly elected Chief and Council. Chief White Cloud – Judy Maunula is supported by Councillors Tracy Morrison, Carmel Zoccole, Julia Rusnak, Clark Chapman, and Garry Kishiqueb who have a three year mandate.

LDMLFN is a signatory to Treaty #3 under the Shebandowan-Adhesion in 1873. The First Nation is the furthest east of the communities within the 55,000 sq miles of Treaty #3 territory which begins near the Height of Land. Much of the First Nation’s Traditional Lands are located and overlapping within the Robinson-Superior and NAN Treaty lands. The current population of registered Band Members is 603.

The First Nation is comprised of two separate and distinct parcels of land, one being Lac des Mille Lacs First Nation Reserve 22A1 (Farmlands) and the other being Lac des Mille Lacs First Nation Reserve 22A2 (Wildlands) designated as such at the siginig of the Treaty. The Ojibway name is Nezaadiikaang, which means Place of the Poplars.

“Historical research confirms that the Lac des Mille Lacs Ojibwe saw their lands flooded by dams since the building of the Dawson Dam during the construction of the Dawson Trail and the Red River Road in 1872. Flooding would continue to affect the people of the LDMLFN with the building of the Bakus Dam in the 1920’s and the Ontario hydro Dam in the 1950’s.
