Biographical history

The Pikangikum (sometimes also spelt Pekangekum, Pekangecum, Pikangicum) Indian Mission has existed in the First Nations community of Pikangikum, located in northwestern Ontario, approximately 90 kilometers north of Red Lake, since 1925. A Hudson's Bay Company post was established at Pikangikum in 1900, and the site was originally a preaching point for the Methodist Mission at Berens River. John J. Everett was the first to serve the Pikangikum Charge after Union as a lay supply person in 1927. In 1959, a United Church was constructed there. Pikangikum, now known as St. Stephen's United Church, is a pastoral charge within the All Native Circle Conference with Poplar Hill.
