The Three Fires Confederacy includes groups that make up the Anishinabek Nation: the Ojibway, Chippewa, Odawa, Potawatomi, Mississauga, Algonquins, Delawares, and Oji-Cree. Our interests stretch across territories and borders, from Alberta to Ontario, Quebec and the Atlantic provinces into Michigan, Wisconsin, and Minnesota.

When the Three Fires Confederacy was formed, each Nation had a traditional role. The Odawa were known as the warriors. The Potawatomi were known as the firekeepers. The Chippewas were known as the providers. We are humbled and honoured to follow this tradition by providing opportunities that benefit all our communities.
