The village of Wiikwemkoong is on the eastern portion of the island and along the beautiful and pristine shores of Georgian Bay. Our vibrant community expresses its Anishinaabek culture through several events that draws visitors from all over the world. Some of those events include the annual cultural festival, fall fair, ice fishing derby, traditional pow-wow, and aboriginal theatre in the ruins of a historic Church.

I invite you all to visit Wiikwemkoong and, also, our beautiful Point Grondine Park which is situated near Killarney, Ontario. Enjoy the wilderness through one of our many private and community operated tourism services. Our land base provides plenty of opportunities for a both a wilderness experience and to enjoy the culture of our people.
