Affirming SON’s exclusive Aboriginal and Treaty rights in our Territory

The Saugeen Ojibway Nation (SON) vigorously defends the rights and interests of our First Nations and members in our Traditional Territory. The SON is the only Indigenous group that has treaty rights in the lands and waters of our Traditional Territory, except for those agreed-upon boundary areas where our Territory overlaps with that of other First Nations. We stand firm against the Crown, project developers, and other groups asserting rights that could conflict with ours. This letter was sent to the group known as Historic Saugeen Metis (HSM), who have been asserting rights in SON’s Traditional Territory. We believe HSM’s claims are in error, have notified them of our opinion, and invite them to prove their claims in court, as SON has done, many times.
