OUR PURPOSE

To preserve and enhance natural environments and Anishinaabek cultures by securing land free from the Indian Act, stewarding land, and honouring Indigenous Ecological Knowledge. With these teachings, we can provide education and two-eyed seeing for the general public and future generations.


Focusing on and learning about the natural world can reconnect us with ancestral places and who we are. Reconnecting with these lands will build pride in identity, heal us from traumas, and allow us to apply our language to its roots - nature.

A land back initiative to practice and implement Indigenous conservation structures for the protection of priority places and species in Canada.

First Nation and Indigenous community Priority Species projects dedicated to a better understanding of Species at Risk, Culturally Significant Species, or Traditional Medicines on Indigenous lands.

Looking for new members!

We are inviting Anishinaabe to represent their original Clan as a member of the land trust. 
If you are interested in sharing Clan knowledge, and want to practice your Clan responsibilities in a modern space, the land trust is a safe place to do so. We are working towards revitalizing Traditional Governance to lead the organization. To learn more about how we operate please visit ‘How We Operate’

Building relationships, sharing ideas…

We are hoping to build connections with Anishinaabek communities and individuals that may want to get involved in our work. If your organization, group, or community is interested in learning more about the Anishinaabek Land Trust or what we do, we can schedule a meet-up to learn about each other and share ideas.
