Cherry, Leech Lake Reservation
It is located over a half a mile north of the Chippewa settlement of Luck Lake. It is about 6.5 miles northeast of Cass Lake. Camp Chippewa is east of this settlement. Directly southeast of Cherry is what appears to be another settlement located along the northwestern shores of Buck Lake. It is directly across from Camp Chippewa. It may be a part of Camp Chippewa. Since the settlement is not a cdp, city, town, or village i thought i name it after Cherry Blossom Drive Lane NE which is one of three streets the housing units are located along. It is located within Ten Lake Township which has a population of 1,026 according to the 2010 census. Indians make up 62% of the population but 64% when including Mexicans and mixed bloods. It is made up of two clusters of housing units. Using google earths historical imagery, Cherry does not show up until 2003 which means it's a newer Leech Lake Reservation community. It was not around in 1991. It has an elevation of 1,378 feet above sea level. There are about 25 housing units in the settlement. I don't know the average household size but Chippewa settlements tend to have average household sizes higher than that of the whites. It could be between 4.0 and 5.0 persons per housing unit. The population of Cherry is likely between 100 and 125. Below are a few google earth pictures of Cherry, Leech Lake Reservation.
