Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana

Fort Resolution

This settlement is located in the Northwest Territories, but more properly, the Akaitcho Nation. The settlement covers an area of 455 sq. km. Fort Resolution is located on the southeastern end of huge Great Slave Lake. The climate of the region, is one in which long cold winters occur every year, and has around three mild summer months which are a few degrees cooler than locations which are further away from huge Great Slave Lake. Fort Resolution's population is officially 484. Anishinabe Indians and Athabascan Indians, live in the small settlement. Officially there are 175 housing units in Fort Resolution. Fort Resolution's average household size is about 3.0 persons per housing unit. However, knowing how native settlements differ from white settlements, it is very likely that Fort Resolution's average household size is closer to 7.0 to over 8.0 persons per housing unit. If that's the case, the population of Fort Resolution must be much larger than claimed. It could be over 1,000, if all those building i counted using google earth, are presently occupied.

Historically, the settlement can trace its roots back to the late 18th century after the whites commenced to invade that region. The whites commenced to barter with the Athabascan and Inuit Indians to the great dismay of the Anishinabe people who warned them about the whites. After the whites commenced to barter with the Athabascan and Inuit Indians, they commenced to use the trade products to launch devastating plague warfare assaults on them. In the matter of a few short decades, the Athabascan and Inuit population had been decimated by about 90%. In all likelihood, the Anishinabe people are the most numerous Indians of the Northwest Territories. They had been warned by the Seven Fires Prophecy that the invading whites would be responsible for new diseases which would completely decimate Indian populations. They took measures to defend themselves, while the Athabascan and Inuit Indians, did not. Below is a link to a map of the Akaitcho Nation settlement of Fort Resolution.
