Welcome to

Mikinaak Onigaming School


Welcome to the virtual home of Mikinaak Onigaming School. We are a small First Nations school in Ojibways of Onigaming First Nation in northwestern Ontario. Our school starts in JK and goes all the way to grade 12.

At Mikinaak Onigaming School we follow the Ontario elementary and secondary curricula. We also focus on traditional and land-based learning. Every day, our teachers and community members work hard to give students skills that they need to be successful in the future, as well as an appreciation for traditional skills and land-based teachings. Students graduate with an OSSD and with a better understanding of their language and culture.
