Welcome to featured Wiki of the Day where we read the summary of the featured Wikipedia article every day.

The featured article for Tuesday, 30 May 2023 is Ignace Tonené.

Ignace Tonené (Nias) (1840/41–1916), also known by his Ojibwe name Maiagizis ("right/correct sun") was a Teme-Augama Anishnabai chief, fur trader, and gold prospector in Upper Canada. He was a prominent employee of the Hudson's Bay Company.

Tonené was the elected deputy chief before being the lead chief and later the life chief of his community. In his role as deputy he negotiated with the Canadian federal government and the Ontario provincial government, advocating for his community to receive annual financial support from both. His attempts to secure land reserves for his community were thwarted by Ontario premier Oliver Mowat.

Tonené's prospecting triggered a 1906 gold rush and creation of Kerr Addison Mines Ltd., although one of his claims was stolen from him by white Canadian prospectors.

This recording reflects the Wikipedia text as of 01:04 UTC on Tuesday, 30 May 2023.
