SON says no shared territory or treaty with Saugeen Métis

In a formal letter, Saugeen Ojibway Nation (SON) laid out its stance regarding its Traditional Territory.  A letter that says that there is no treaty or formal agreement between the SON and the Historic Saugeen Métis (HSM) over “claims of rights and territory overlapping those of SON”.

In the letter, it is stated that, ” SON’s Traditional Territory is bounded on the south by the Maitland River system from Goderich to past Arthur, on the west by the Canada/USA border in the middle of Lake Huron, on the north by a line along the midpoint of the channel between the Saugeen (Bruce) Peninsula and Manitoulin Island, and on the east by a line down the middle of Georgian Bay. The SON also asserts our Aboriginal title over that portion of Lake Huron and Georgian Bay within our Territory”.
