It is one of the highest honours in Canada and awarded to people who have worked in their communities in some way.
The list also includes Norman Mailer, the American author, historian and journalist.
Anishinaabe is the most common First Nations language in the United States. It is spoken by more than 240,000 people – the most in a single community of any language.
Mr Reynolds’ character, Eric Packer, was the protagonist of the 2017 film Deadpool.
Mr Reynolds has said he still considers himself a Canadian, despite his Hollywood career.
“I live in Los Angeles but I get home on Fridays. I love being a Canadian,” he told the Toronto Star newspaper in 2015.
“It was something that was ingrained in me growing up.”
