Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana






Bearskin Lake, Ontario


This Ojibway Treaty 9 Reservation settlement is located in northwestern Ontario. There are actually three settlements located around Michikan Lake. According to a 2013 census estimate, the three settlements have a combined population of 461. All three settlements have a combined total number of housing units of 125. The average household size is just under 4.0 persons per household. Before 1975, the Bearskin Lake community was affiliated with Big Trout Lake. All three settlements are connected by a gravel road.



Main Bearskin Lake

It is located along the western shores of Michikan Lake. It has the main buildings for the government for the three communities. Though it may not have the most housing units (it depends on if any apartment buildings are located there), it is the more important of the three communities. It may have up to 40 to 50 housing units. I don't know what their population is. Below is a link to a picture of the main Bearskin Lake settlement.

North Bearskin Lake

It is located on the northern shores of Michikan Lake and around a half a mile to the northeast of the main community. About a half a mile to it's east is a cluster of housing units which may number as many as 11. The larger of the two housing unit clusters has about 30 housing units. It may have up to 40 housing units. I don't know what their population is. Below is a link to a picture of North Bearskin Lake.

East Bearskin Lake

It is located on the eastern shores of Michikan Lake. The housing units, which may number between 20 and 30, are located along the road which connects all three communities. I don't know what their population is. Below is a link to a picture of East Bearskin Lake.
