Leech Lake Reservation Home


Boy Lake, Minnesota


Using google earth you can see that the area has at least eight house foundations. Using google earths historical imagery, those 8 house foundations were not around in 2003. They first show up in 2004. For some reason the government of Leech Lake Reservation halted the construction of the 8 housing units. It may have been because of the new settlement located at Black Duck. Today, the area probably has around 22 housing units with nearly all being mobile homes. Most of the housing units are located in Boy River Township which had a population of 100 in 2000. At least 7% of Boy River Townships population was Indian. As for the other housing units, they are located in Rogers Township which had a population of 43 according to the 2000 census. Indians made up 4% of the townships population. In 1991, only 6 housing units were located throughout this area. In 2003, there were 10 housing units. Today there are 22. So the Indian population is now probably significantly higher at Boy Lake. As for the 8 house foundations, they are there and it's up to the government of Leech Lake Reservation to either resume construction of those 8 houses or do something else with the 8 house foundations. Money could be an issue. To the south by almost one mile, is Black Duck. In Anishinabe, they would call Boy Lake Na-bay-zes Za-ga-i-gan. There are actually two words for boy in Anishinabe. One is Gwi-way-zes, while the other is derived from Na-be. Little in Anishinabe is usually zes or zis. So Na-bay-zes can be used. Elevation of the settlement is 1,318 feet above sea level. Below are several google earth photos of Boy Lake, Leech Lake Reservation.
