A Not At All Complete Guide to the Saugeen Ojibway Nation (VIDEO)

June is Indigenous History Month, so let's talk a bit about history and a bit about today.

Our farm is located within the Treaty lands and Territory of the Saugeen Ojibway Nation

I am very grateful to the Chippewas of Saugeen, and the Chippewas of Nawash, known collectively as the Saugeen Ojibway Nation, as the traditional keepers of this land. 

Part of my personal journey as a farmer and a Canadian is learning (and often unlearning) about Indigenous Peoples, their histories, cultures and current contexts. In particular, I am interested in upholding the commitments of treaties and supporting Indigenous resurgence. 

So, I wanted to share this video produced by the SON Environmental Office. It's described as "a brief introduction to the Saugeen Ojibway (SON), its culture, and a very brief, and not at all complete, history of the SON and its Territory".

It's only 30 minutes long but incredibly informative, and totally worth your time.

If you're not sure whose traditional territory or Treaty lands you reside, take some time to do a little research. is a great place to start.
