Kasabonika Lake First Nation

Kasabonika Lake First Nation

Kasabonika Lake First Nation is located 448 kilometres northeast of Sioux Lookout, Ontario and along the Asheweig River. We are a remote First Nation, accessible by air and by winter road. Kasabonika Lake First Nation is a member of the Shibogama First Nations Tribal Council and the Nishnawbe Aski Nation - Treaty No.9.  We are a remote First Nation that is accessible by air only or by winter road.  Kasabonika Lake is located 448 kilometers northeast of Sioux Lookout in Northwestern Ontario and along the beautiful Asheweig River. The Band membership of Kasabonika Lake is approximately 914 people in total, of which the on-reserve population is 866. The traditional language of Oji-Cree is used by many of the elders living in Kasabonika Lake First Nation. Anishininimowin or Oji-Cree (sometimes called Severn Ojibway) is closely related to the Ojibway language, but has a different literary tradition based in Cree. The English language, both spoken and written, is the working language for most of our younger community members. The Kasabonika culture is a mix of modern day festivities and traditional ceremonies and rituals. Our members spend their free time enjoying time-honoured bead working and feasts, as well as joining other community members at the recreational centre for hockey, skating, bingo and dances.
