RHW is an initiative undertaken by the 21 First Nations of the Robinson Huron Treaty to create a treaty-level body capable of addressing many issues that have, until this time, been addressed within Canadian government-created agencies and systems of governance. The goal is to develop a collective Anishinaabe decision-making body processing the interests and inherent rights of our people's interests and inherent rights. We recognize that the Treaty helps protect our inherent rights and can build on the strength of this collective to enhance and foster health and wellness for our people.
RHW also conducts treaty-based research, facilitates community engagement in Robinson Huron Treaty communities on treaty-related matters, and develops treaty education tools, including detailed use and occupancy research of the treaty area.
"...and to fish in the waters thereof, as they heretofore been in the habit of doing.”
