Aanii - Welcome to the Wahnapitae First Nation website.
Our traditional name is Wahnapitaeping "That place where the water is shaped like a molar tooth".
Our vision for this website is to provide information to our band members, stakeholders and others interested in our community. We are proud of our rich heritage and culture and want to share that information with you.
The site will hold a wealth of accurate information about Wahnapitae First Nation and our history as well as additional up to date information in our members section.
We invite you to comment on what you see here as well as provide us with suggestions to provide a balanced website experience for you.

WFN and Sudbury Integrated Nickel Operations Scholarship Fund
Both Wahnapitae First Nations (WFN) and Sudbury Integrated Nickel Operations (Sudbury INO), a Glencore Company, believe in the importance of a good education for Community members for the betterment of both Wahnapitae First Nation and operations in the Sudbury area. Sudbury INO, through a formal agreement with WFN in 2008, has sponsored an annual scholarship fund to support post-secondary education and training programs. The scholarship fund is aimed at assisting community members of WFN to pursue careers in the mining related and mineral processing related fields.
Both WFN & Sudbury INO have established a joint Human Resources Working group to develop the criteria and mechanisms to select candidates and to administer this scholarship fund.
All requirements/documentation must be submitted together no later than September 15, 2016 to be considered in the up-coming semester & year scholarship (2016-2017).

Did you know that Wahnapitae is positioned perfectly to receive energy from the sun, as many community homes face south and southwest? The Community Energy Planning team is using a computer software program called RETScreen to measure just how much energy can be captured from the sun.
