The community is accessed by a 25 kilometer gravel road from Highway 64 leading to the two nearest urban centers of North Bay, via Highway 17 and Sudbury via Highway 69. Both centers are approximately 120 kilometers from the community.

Next Monthly Band Meeting

Dokis Community Complex
The purpose of the project is to research those who actively served in WW1, WW2, Korean War and/or more recent wars. In addition, the project would also like to research those women/men who have made contributions to the war effort ie. those who may have worked in munition plants, worked in factories building planes/ships or those who volunteered in other capacities.
These stories need to voiced and validated so that our community, our children and future generations can be proud of their own family heroes and ancestral contributions. A local historical booklet will be created to recognize our veterans and those who played a significant part in our history. The booklet will also be included as part of the curriculum at the Kikendawt Kinoomaadii Gaming school.
A Cenotaph will be erected on the museum site and a plaque listing of those who served will be affixed to the monument. The monument itself, will be one the natural rock formations obtained from the Chaudiere Dam site; and an official unveiling ceremony will conclude this project shortly thereafter.
