The left panel represents Mattagmi First Nation.

The inner circle of four colours is a medicine wheel, a symbol of the four races. It also holds numerous teachings both human and spiritual. The cross shows how Christian values and Native spirituality can be integrated into one another. Note the watchword at the bottom of the Panel.

The doves are a sign of the Jubilee year pointing in the four directions.

All of this is surrounded by a braid of sweet grass in the shape of a fish - a very important resource for families in this community. The sweet grass is a symbol of purification and of healing.
