This Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement is located in western Quebec. It is actually 62 miles east of Ontario which means much of extreme western Quebec must be included as Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation land. It is also known as Pikogan. It was established in 1954 which means they and most other Algonquin's of Quebec, are probably related to the Ojibway's who were forced to relocate from Akimiski Island. Their ancestors probably fled to the island in the 19th century or early 20th century. Though nearly all Algonquin settlements in Quebec did not sign Treaty 9, this one did which proves a connection. The eastern most settlement of the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation will be Oujé-Bougoumou.
Although it is located at 74 degrees east, the western part of the lake known as Lake Opemiska, is at 75 degrees east. Oujé-Bougoumou is located along it's eastern shores, at 74 degrees east. The settlement of Kitigan Zibi sits at 46 degrees north and 75 degrees east. That is the eastern boundary of the southern portion of the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation in Quebec. It will extend up to 75 degees east to where Whapmagoostui is located along the eastern shores of Hudson Bay, at 55 degrees north. According to the 2011 census, the population of Abitibiwinni or Pikogan, is 532.
Supposedly many Cree from the Washaw Sibi Eeyou live at Pikogan or Abitibiwinni, as well as the Anishinabe Lac Simon settlement. They have been brainwashed. One group of Algonquin's in Ontario are known as the Iroquet. It is strong evidence the Anishinabe people are in fact the Iroquois. The settlement has 135 housing units. The average household size is 3.9 persons per housing unit. Around 335 continue to speak Anishinabe at Pikogan or Abitibiwinni, which is unusual since Amos, Quebec is less than a mile away. Below are several links to pictures of the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement of Abitibiwinni or Pikogan.
