The Serpent River First Nation is part of the unceded lands retained by the Ojibway who traditionally inhabited the North Shores of the St. Mary’s River and the Georgian Bay.
Serpent River First Nation is part of the Robinson Huron Treaty, which was signed on September 5th 1850.
The Serpent River First Nation is also known as Cutler or in the recent past as Kenabutch [sic]. For the past three decades, traditionalists have preferred the Ojibway titles as Genaabaajiing and Chi Kebebek Ziibiing Anishnabek.
The reserve has always been a relatively small community; however, recent years have showed a rapid development of community infrastructure and community services. In addition, the on-reserve population has shown a definite increase.
