We call ourselves Mitchikanibikok Inik, or in English, Algonquins of Barriere Lake. Our First Nation is one of ten Algonquin First Nations inhabiting the Ottawa River watershed along the border between the provinces of Quebec and Ontario approximately 3 hours drive north of Ottawa. We take our name-" Mitchikanibikok Inik", meaning "the people of the stone fence or stone fish weir"-from our former rendezvous place of Barriere Lake at the headwaters of the Ottawa River. As Barriere Lake people, we speak a distinct local sub-dialect of Algonquin, the Easternmost and most divergent dialect of the Algonquian language family. The historic culture and ecology of our First Nation identifies us as a Northern people, sharing many "boreal" customs with other Northern peoples.Resource industries and businesses, settler governments and their institutions and a rapidly growing population have squeezed our First Nation into an ever more limited world of options for adapting to change. By the late 1980's the combined effect of clear-cut logging, flooding and fluctuating water levels from the operation of dams and reservoirs within our territory, and the depletion of fish and game by sports users, caused us to organize a peaceful campaign of protests and blockades against logging. After a great deal of pressure, the governments of Canada and Quebec responded by agreeing to sign the Trilateral Agreement which provides for Algonquin input in resource management decisions within our traditional territory.
