Rainy Lake and River Bands of Saulteaux (Ojibwe language: Goojijiwininiwag) were a historical Saulteaux (Ojibwe) group located in Northwestern Ontario and northern Minnesota, along and about the Rainy Lake and the Rainy River. Thorough Treaty of Paris (1783) and the Webster-Ashburton Treaty (1842), the Goojijiwininiwag were split between those in the United States and those in the British North America (which later became Canada). The Goojijiwininiwag in Canada became parties to Treaty 3. In Canada, the communities forming the Rainy Lake and River Bands of Saulteaux interacted with the Canadian government with Department of Indian Affairs (today, Indian and Northern Affairs Canada) through the Couchiching Agency, Fort Frances, Ontario, from 1871-1903, after which the agency became the Fort Frances Agency.
