Belcourt, Turtle Mountain Reservation
It is the largest city on the Chippewa Turtle Mountain Reservation. Belcourt has a population of 2,078. The population dropped dramatically between 2000 and 2010. In 2000 the population was 2,440. Belcourt covers over 6.1 sq. mi. There are 856 housing units in the CDP. If the other Turtle Mountain Nation CDP's show a trend, than Belcourt's population is probably much higher than they claim. Since the CDP of Belcourt is the most important settlement of the Turtle Mountain Nation, it definitely means it attracts many of the Reservations Chippewa's to want to live there.
Belcourt is a census-designated place (CDP), but that is a bit misleading because it does have the look of a regular city or town. From west to east, the CDP has a length of over 1 and half miles. From north to south, the length is nearly 2 miles. More than half (54%) of the settlements population lives under the poverty line. There are few businesses located in the CDP. Many of the CDP's citizens rely on government jobs such as tribal, school, fire and police positions. The CDP does have a public radio station (KEYA). The population of Belcourt is 95% Indian and 4% white. The remaining population is black and Hispanic. Belcourt's elevation is 1,962 feet. Zip code is 58316.
Belcourt has two banks and the Turtle Mountain Shopping Center. And there are several lakes and forests (the forests are located on the city's west side and north) located around the city, which makes the region one that is especially beautiful during the spring, summer, and autumn. The main streets going through Belcourt are US Highway 281, 44th Ave Northeast, BIA Road 10, BIA Road 5, and BIA Road 8. Below are google earth pictures of Belcourt.
