The Beausoleil First Nation is mainly a ChippewaFirst Nationsband government located in Simcoe County, Ontario, Canada. There are still people on Christian Island today who claim Odawa parentage. Odawa identity is often submerged in that of the more numerous Ojibwa. In modern accounts they are often ignored as a separate people. On Christian Island itself the band's billboard states that it is a reserve of Ojibwa and Potawatomi people. Only on the Manitoulin Island Reserve of Wikwemikong do Odawa numbers warrant recognition by officials of their separate status. Their small numbers on mixed reserves in the province has made the Odawa something of a forgotten or at least disregarded people in Ontario today. Though small in numbers, they remain among the population of native peoples in Simcoe County and the District of Muskoka.
The First Nation elect their leadership through the Act Electoral System for a two-year term. The First Nation's council consists of a chief and six (6) councillors. The current chief is Roland Monague Sr. The First Nation is a member of Ogemawahj Tribal Council, a regional Chiefs' council.
