Anishinabek News

In 1988 the Anishinabek News was launched as a tabloid-format newspaper designed to foster pride and share knowledge about Anishinabek Nation current affairs, culture, political objectives and accomplishments.  The newspaper is published by the Union of Ontario Indians (UOI), which in 1949 was established as the corporate political advocate for member communities of the Anishinabek Nation.

Some 60,000 Anishinabek citizens are members of 40 First Nations communities and account for one-third of the First Nations population in the province of Ontario.The Anishinabek include Odawa, Ojibway, Pottawatomi, Delaware, Chippewa, Algonquin and Mississauga peoples who occupy territories from Fort William First Nation in the northwest, along the north shores of Lakes Superior and Huron to Pikwakanagan in the Ottawa Valley, and across central and southern Ontario to Aamjiwnaang First Nation near Sarnia. Currently, ten annual print  issues are distributed on request at no charge to citizens of the Anishinabek Nation.  It is also circulated to universities, colleges, friendship and health centres, First Nations across Canada, media organizations and by individual subscriptions both nationally and internationally. Advertising sales offset some of the newspaper’s costs.

In 2009, the Anishinabek News began an online presence with current and archived issues being posted on the Anishinabek Nation/Union of Ontario Indians website at www.anishinabek.ca.  That archive can now be found here on the Anishinabek News website.

On April 16, 2013, the Anishinabek News launched its own website – www.anishinabeknews.ca – ushering in a new era for its readers and advertisers. Everyone with high-speed Internet service will have earlier access to an online publication with more timely and legible articles and advertisements, featuring full process colour on every page. Production of a print edition ended with the March 2014 issue.   Every month, Anishinabek First Nations are provided with a pdf of news highlights to provide their own citizens either a community newsletter or print the 4-pager.

As directed by Anishinabek Nation leadership, an 8-page version of the Anishinabek News will be printed quarterly.  Distribution will be limited.  More to come on this new venture.

The Anishinabek News has no full-time employees, and is produced by the Communications Unit of the Union of Ontario Indians at the head office in Nipissing First Nation.
