About W.I. Heritage Center
Walpole Island and the surrounding region is called Bkejwanong or "where the waters divide." It has been home to aboriginal people for over six thousand years. The Walpole Island Heritage Centre or Nin.da.waab.jig, (meaning "those who seek to find"), was officially founded in July 1989 as the research arm of the Walpole Island First Nation, dealing with land claims, environmental protection, and heritage conservation. Through the effective practices incorporated by the Centre, Walpole Island has become one of the first Native communities in Canada to take on a leadership role in the field of environment and sustainable development.
