The Sagamok Anishnawbek First Nation, also known as Many Rivers Joining-Human Beings,[1] is a First Nations group located in Ontario, Canada. The Sagamok occupy a reserve approximately 120 kilometres west of Sudbury, Ontario, and have a population of approximately 1400.[2]

In the early years of Canada's development, the French relied on Sagamok's strategic location to trade with the local Anishnaabe people of that time.[1] The French base of operations was the nearby Fort La Cloche.
