Alderville First Nation (AFN), as a part of the Anishinabeg, have a long history in this region of Ontario, dating back centuries through the Anishinabeg migrations to the Great Lakes to the subsequent occupation of Southern Ontario at the beginning of the 18th century. Since The Great Peace of Montreal in 1701 to the present, AFN and its ancestors have been a party to events in Southern Ontario that have helped make the province what it is. With the ratification of the 1763 Royal Proclamation at Niagara in 1764, to the early treaties of the 1780s along the Lake Ontario frontier, and the Williams Treaties of 1923, AFN has evolved along with this history and today proudly resides on the territory it has known consistently as home for over 7 generations.
AFN members are the caretakers of our Traditional Territory as described herein, and possess Aboriginal and Treaty rights over lands and resources within our Traditional Territory.
