Our Story
The name ‘Matawa’ was originally chosen by the Chiefs because in the Ojibway and Cree languages, it is used to refer to the meeting of the rivers. All of the Matawa First Nations inhabit areas on or near one of the major rivers that flow in the vast Nishnawbe Aski Nation.

Our Logo
The distinctive Matawa logo was designed by artist Deon Peters of Marten Falls First Nation. In the top right corner, the waving lines depict rivers flowing through each First nation community and coming together as one.

The nine feathers refer to the original nine First Nations of Matawa First Nations.

The Sacred Staff reflects the wisdom of our people that has and continues to be passed down through the centuries of our forefathers.

The lone feather represents any other First Nation that may want to join Matawa First Nations in the future. The Corporation shall always be open to any other First Nations and each new member shall receive equal representation and be given equal involvment as a full member.

The smaller circle refers to the Board of Directors of Matawa First Nations Management. This body is charged with the actual implementation of policies, directives and decisions of the Chiefs.
