The Mattagami First Nation is an Anishnaabe First Nation - mainly Ojibwe, Oji-Cree and some Odawa - in the Canadian province of Ontario situated along the Mattagami River. The First Nation members of the community primarily live on the Mattagami 71 reserve in the Sudbury District near Gogama. The on-reserve population is approximately 100 residents.

Mattagami First Nation is part of the Wabun Tribal Council, a political organization which is also part of the Nishnawbe-Aski Nation (NAN), which represents the Treaty 9 area. The current chief of the Mattagami First Nation is Walter Naveau.

The reserve has its own elementary school, while high school students are bused to Timmins.
