Gathering Communities Making Connections
A Guide for Indigenous Families and Children
Indigenous Regional Programs, Band Offices & Councils: Ardoch First Nations and Allies
Ardoch Algonguin First Nation is an Anishnabek community that is located in the Madawaska, Mississippi and Rideau watersheds. Historically the communities’ roots are in the families who wintered where these rivers come close together. Our use and habitation of this location originates in time immemorial. Over thousands of years Algonquin people developed intimate relationships with all parts of the Natural world within our homeland and historically our ancestors shared in the cyclical life of the Ottawa River and its tributaries. Our people have continued to maintain our relationships and responsibilities in the Kichi Sìbì.
ARDOCH ALGONQUIN FIRST NATION IS COMMITTED TO A VISION THAT CREATES OPPORTUNITIES FOR MEMBERS TO ACCESS AND ENGAGE WITH TRADITIONAL KNOWLEDGE, LANGUAGE AND CULTURE. WE RECOGNIZE THAT HAVING A SENSE OF COMMUNITY AND BELONGING IS IMPORTANT FOR BUILDING AND MAINTAINING A STRONG SENSE OF SELF AS AN ALGONQUIN PERSON.
