They have 144 housing units with all lived in. Average household size is 2.6 persons per household. Around 70 people speak Ojibway at Aundeck Omni Kaning First Nation. Their ancestors signed 1836's Manitoulin Island Treaty which set aside all of Manitoulin Island to be an Ojibway Reserve. It's yet an Ojibway Reserve because they never agreed to cede all of Manitoulin Island Reserve. They eventually changed their name to Crows Nest which in Ojibway is pronounced as Aandeg'n Waas. Ogima Sagima led Ojibway's to Manitoulin Island (Ghost Island) during very early 16th century expeditions from a western location. From Ghost or Spirit Island, Ojibway people commenced to colonize locations to their north, south and east. They were preparing to fight white invaders.
