History of the Anishinabek News
Each month the Anishinabek News is distributed compliments of the Union of Ontario Indians to citizens of the Anishinabek Nation. It is also circulated to universities, colleges, friendship and health centres, First Nations across Canada, and by individual subscriptions both nationally and internationally. Readers are invited to submit letters, articles, and photos for publication. All submissions are reviewed for publication based on priority of interest and edited for clarity of thought, taste, brevity and legal implications. Remuneration will be paid for submissions approved in advance by the editor.
The Anishinabek Nation established the Union of Ontario Indians (UOI) as its secretariat in 1949. The UOI is a political advocate and secretariat to 40 member First Nations across Ontario.
The Anishinabek Nation territory encompasses First Nations along the north shore of Lake Nipigon, the north shore of Lake Huron, Manitoulin Island, east to the Ottawa River valley, and through the south central part of Ontario to the Chippewas of Aamjiwnaang First Nation.
Tribal groups represented within the Nation include Odawa, Ojibway, Pottawatomi, Delaware, Chippewa, Algonquin and Mississauga. The 55,000 citizens of the Anishinabek Nation represent about one-third of the total First Nation population in Ontario.
Launched in 1988, the Anishinabek News is a tabloid-format newspaper designed to inform Anishinabek Nation citizens about Union of Ontario Indians' initiatives and activities, as well as provide a sampling of Indigenous current affairs from around the globe. About one-tenth of the 11,000-copy press run is distributed to businesses, government offices, media organizations, and paying non-Native subscribers.
The monthly newspaper has no full-time employees, and is produced by the Communications Unit of the Union of Ontario Indians out of the central office in North Bay.
