Historical Notes
Prior to European contact (circa 1650-1760), the Southeastern Ojibway lived a nomadic existence, depending on trading, fishing, hunting, trapping and gathering for their livelihood. The Shawanaga Ojibway are descendants of the Southeastern Ojibway, and live within the boundaries of the territory described by the Robinson-Huron Treaty of 1850.

Two thirds of the work force is involved in the service sector, divided equally between government and non-government services. The rest is concentrated in the construction and trade industries. Local industries include a tourist lodge and marina.
