Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
Located about 68 miles north of huge Lake Superior and about 68 miles east of huge Lake Nipigon, is the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement of Ginoogaming. The population of Ginoogaming is supposedly 175, but the settlements population must be included with the city of Longlac's population because the Reserve is located near the city as well as another Chippewa settlement. There are 66 housing units in Ginoogaming with 55 occupied. It gives the settlement a 3.1 persons per housing unit average, which is about normal for Chippewa settlements. Since the settlement is located around some white settlements, only 30 people in Ginoogaming continue to speak Anishinabe. Longlac is really a predominantly Chippewa city, though the whites claim that Longlac is a white city. Canadians classify Longlac under the Greenstone Municipality which includes Longlac and seven other white cities. Longlac probably has a population of between 2,000 and 2,500, with Chippewa's making up about half of the city's population or more.
