This map represents the Anishinaabe diaspora in the year 2021. Many nations are part of regional historic alliances and have complex multi-layered identities.
The addresses, images and translations are those provided by the nations themselves. The latitude and longitude are based on the address of tribal operations. The Anishinaabe names are those acknowledged by the nations across time or our translation of the current name when no other information was available. We encourage you to communicate directly with the nations for more information.
