People and Nature

Wahnapitae First Nation’s strongest assets are people and the natural environment. Preservation of both is critical, both for economic development opportunities, but also the preservation of our Anishinaabe culture and traditions. The people who choose to live and work in the community are adventurous spirits with a strong sense of identity and community pride. Attracting more of our members to return to the community will only benefit the WFN. Marketing efforts to attract tourists can use the stunning nature surrounding the community to evoke excitement and adventure in potential visitors.
