4 major topics of research are underway regarding Akikodjiwan/Chaudiere Falls and its islands and the Ottawa River.

The first is related to the dismantling of the Chaudiere Dam to free the falls.

The second idea is related to the rezoning of the most sacred area for the indigenous people for 2,000 km - Chaudiere Falls and islands from parkland to a land of mixed-use community (condos, shops, restaurants, parks, and hotels) for the $1.5B Zibi development. freethefalls.ca

The third concerns making the Ottawa River a legal person like the Amazon, Ganges and Whanganui Rivers.

The fourth concerns creating a national conference for indigenous sacred sites.

An archeologist is required to help evaluate a possible serpent mound, a kind of effigy mound, located behind the former Federal Study Centre at 1495 Heron Road. It would be only the second in Canada and one of only 30 in North America out of tens of thousands. There are other possible related sites in the vicinity. The place is to be sold and so there is some urgency to ensure due diligence is pursued. If deemed to be one then a National Historic Site and possible interpretation centre could be developed.
