Located around 40 miles south of Berens River, the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement of Bloodvein has a population of 1,036 according to the 2011 census. The community has 140 housing units and an average household size of 7.2 persons per housing unit. Around 355 continue to speak Anishinabe at Bloodvein. In Anishinabe, Bloodvein would be pronounced as Mis-kwi Si-pi. The "i" vowell sound in Anishinabe sounds like the English letter "e." It means Blood River. Whites from the Hudson Bay Company changed the name of the settlement to Bloodvein for some reason. The Ojibwa's named the area after a major battle. If the planned highway up to Berens River is constructed, it will have a negative impact on the Bloodvein community.
