The Communications Department serves to keep our members informed. There are many events and activities going on in and around Rama First Nation of interest to members who live on and off reserve.
We are a dedicated team providing photography, videography, presentation development, brochure, flyer and storytelling. The department is involved throughout the administration, working with other departments, to assist them in communicating across our multi-media network.
Traditional Ecological Knowledge, Ngii Waabmaa "I Saw"
Restoring our traditional knowledge as Anishinaabe people was identified in the 2015 Community Visioning. This project, NGII WAABMAA "I Saw" aims to help us deepen and strengthen our relationship to the land and waters in our territory by helping encouraging us to be on the land and to report what we see for the benefit of all.
It is helpful to map our sightings in order to create a database of who and what we share our territory with, to help determine and predict trends, and to mitigate potential problems in the future. Therefore any and all siting's reported are important. Sightings can include wildlife, edible plants and medicines.

If you have any difficulties in recording your sightings, please contact Shawna McKenzie at 705-325-3611 ext. 1633.
