Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
Cannon Ball, Standing Rock-Cheyenne River Reservation
It is one of only a couple Standing Rock-Cheyenne River Reservation settlements located in North Dakota. Cannon Ball covers an area of 96.8 sq. mi., which means it is a very rural settlement. In fact, it is so rural it does not have a zip code. In the 2000 census the population of Cannon Ball, North Dakota was at 864. It is situated near the Cannon Ball and Missouri Rivers, both of which were the domain of the Chippewa's. Native Americans accounted for 94% of the cdp's population. Whites accounted for 5% of the population. Hispanics accounted for 2% of the population of Cannon Ball. Economically, the settlement is doing poorly. Around 51% of the cdp's citizens live below the poverty line. There is a total of 208 housing units in Cannon Ball, which gives the cdp an average household size of a little over 4.0 persons per housing unit. One area has a large proportion of the cdp's housing units (over 400 of them) as you will see in the google earth photo.
