Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana

Churchill, Manitoba

Located in northeastern Manitoba adjacent to the shores of Hudson Bay, Churchill has a population of 813 according to the 2011 census. The community has 395 housing units and an average household size of 2.1 persons per housing unit. About half the population is Indian and the other half non Indian. Churchill was an important location to the white confederation of Europe who established a trading post there in the 18th century. Ojibway Soldiers were stationed in this region and kept the white invaders from expanding inland until shortly after 1800. The whites relocated foreign Asian people to the Churchill region. Churchill was one of the locations the whites used to relocate the Ojibway's from the interior of Nunavut and northern Manitoba to, in the early and mid 20th century. Many returned to the interior of northern Manitoba in the late 1960s and early 1970s. That be Tadoule Lake. Below is a link to a picture of the Ojibway Treaty 5 Reservation settlement of Churchill.
