OJIBWAYS OF PIC RIVER FIRST NATION  (16 July 2014) – The Begetikong Anishnabe (Ojibways of Pic River First Nation) submitted to the federal government, a proposal for development of hydro potential at Chigamiwinigum Falls, a site located in Pukaskwa Park.

“We believe that projects like the Chigamiwinigum Falls project are consistent with the Park mandate, and in particular, with the mandate of Pukaskwa Park as an prime example of Canada’s boreal forests. Hydro electric development and the retention of the forest ecology values are completely compatible objectives.” said Chief Duncan Michano. “We continue to assert our Aboriginal title to the traditional territory of the Begetikong Anishnabe, because we did not sign the Robinson Superior Treaty”, he continued.
