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.
We invite you to comment on what you see here as well as provide us with suggestions to provide a balanced website experience for you.

Community Energy Plan - UPDATE
Did you know that Wahnapitae is positioned perfectly to receive energy from the sun, as many community homes face south and southwest? The Community Energy Planning team is using a computer software program called RETScreen to measure just how much energy can be captured from the sun.
Rainbow District Animal Control and Shelter Services is responsible for stray or nuisance dogs and their owners.
Please call to report roaming dogs, if you have found a dog, or to report anyone who is allowing their dog to be a nuisance to others.
