Kettle Point also known as Wiiwkwedong is part of the Anishinabek Nation.

 

kettle-historyKettle Point is unceded territory located in southwestern Ontario along the south shore of Lake Huron. We are officially known as the Chippewas of Kettle and Stony Point. Stony Point is known as Aazhoodena (we will provide more information as this website develops). Our land base consists of approximately 1,096 hectares that accommodates an on-reserve population of 2,108 persons.

Kettle Point is named for its unusual spherical rock formations that erode from the underlying shale beds along the shore of Lake Huron. These rock formations known as “kettles” are unique to only three locations within the entire world.

It is the uniqueness of this First Nation that makes the preservation of the Kettle Point lands a high priority, not only for its “kettles”, but for the first people’s of this community and for the future generations to come.
