Throughout our history, the Chippewas of Rama First Nation have  been known as a caring, sharing people. Our Chippewa territory has been called ‘the gathering place’ where travelers rested before continuing on their journey, where great meetings were held and important agreements signed.  From the earliest of times, our people have been entrepreneurs, artisans, craftsmen, hunters and fishermen.  We later operated as guides throughout the area for tourists, and marketed crafts, produce and services.
We invite you to learn more about our community, whose pride in Ojibwe traditions and restoring traditional ecological knowledge are at the forefront of community visioning.  This stands alongside progressive programs, economic development initiatives and member services.
Music and performing arts, visual arts crafts and story telling.
