Welcome To Garden River First Nation

The Creator's Garden

 The Name 


The name takes one back to the fur trade. The people living in this area were well known for their vegetable growing along the route the voyagers and explorers followed. Charles Church, established a store on Sugar Island next to the St. Mary's River. Church purchased vegetables from the First Nations and sold them to the voyagers as they passed through.

Garden River was a place where our people could farm and hunt - "The Creator's Garden."
