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.
