Islander Online – The Christian Island Cottagers' Association


CICA Land Acknowledgment

The Christian Island Cottagers’ Association serves the cottagers of Christian Island.  We operate virtually and, on the land of the Beausoleil First Nation who call the island G’Chimnissing. G’Chimnissing has been a site of human activity for 15,000 years and the Beausoleil First Nation are Anishinabek custodians of these lands. We would like to acknowledge the sacred domain on which we enjoy our cottages and operate as a community organization.

If you are interested in learning more about the Beausoleil First Nation, you can go to their website: and you can also read their community plan entitled Ge Ni Zhaaying on the home page.
