Weenusk First Nation

This Ojibway Kasba Reservation settlement is located in extreme northern Ontario. It is 20 miles southwest of Hudson Bay and Winisk. They are Winisk Sippi (River) Ojibway's. In 1985, flooding where Winisk is located, which is nearly adjacent to Hudson Bay, forced residents of Winisk to relocate further southwest. This Weenusk First Nation location, has strong ties to Anishinini People who are Ojibway. Anishinini means same thing as Anishinabe. In Ojibway, "nini" means man while "Nabe" means male. Their language is North Ojibwe or Severn Ojibway. According to a 2016 census, Weenusk First Nation on-Reserve population is 195. They have 82 dwellings with 68 lived in. Average household size is 2.8 persons per household. Around 85 speak Severn Ojibway Language at this community. Weenusk First Nation is an isolated community which depends on planes and possibly a winter road for food and other supplies to be brought in.
