Brochet, Barren Lands First Nation
This Anishinabe-Chipewyan (Chipewyan is pronounced the same as Chippewa excepting that a "yan" is added to the last syllable sound in Chippewa which is "yan" of course, which sounds like Chip-pe-wa-yan) settlement of Brochet, Manitoba which is about 50 miles or 80 kilometers south of Lac Brochet, Manitoba, and 55 miles or 88 kilometers east of Lac la Hache, Saskatchewan, has a population that is difficult to correctly estimate. There is a total of around 140 housing units or more in the small settlement we have to first deal with. Since the community is extremely isolated, it is very likely the average household size for Brochet is twice as great as 4.0, or around 8.0 persons per housing unit or higher. That would put the population of the settlement near to 1,200. Many of the settlements citizens still rely on fishing, hunting, and trapping for a subsistence. Below are several links to photographs of Brochet. No road photos. Just aerial.
