Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
They are the principle Anishinabek and represent a major totem of the Anishinabe people. They be the military and police totem of course. They lived throughout the entire domain of the Anishinabe Nation. Even among the Anishinabe people who forced their way into the New England region and towards what is now the southeastern United States. In fact, nearly all were Chippewa. White historians have dealt with these Anishinabe people as if they were a distinct tribe which they are not. The same can be said for all other Anishinabe people. Within Anishinabe society were at least 4 major totems and many lessor ones. The major ones include the largest who are the military and police totem, who are known as the Bungee, Chippewa, Mississauga, Ojibwa, Ojibway, Ojibwe, and Saulteaux. Then the Ottawa or as their totem is correctly pronounced, the O-da-wah, existed. Next were the Potawatomi who were the keepers of the fire. And then the next was the Mi-de-wi-win. The name Metis (it is pronounced exactly like may-tay) is derived from this major Anishinabe totem. They were doctors, teachers, and the like. The Chippewa's are not liked by the whites. White leaders have a great fear of them because they are the military and police of the mighty Atlanteans. William W. Warren clearly described in his 19th century book "History of the Ojibway People", that the citizens of the military and police totem of the Anishinabe Nation were ill tempered. They were prone to initiating fights and were constantly on the borders of the vast Anishinabe Nation, patrolling to protect and also to clear a way to new lands when Anishinabe ogimak demanded from their brave soldiers that they must bring new lands under Anishinabe control. They refused to leave their original homeland around the Great Lakes region. Thus, the reason Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin have large Chippewa populations. Michigan has the largest Chippewa population.
