Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
Located in southeastern Manitoba along the southeastern shores of Lake Winnipeg, is the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement of Hollow Water. It has a population of 984 according to the 2011 census. Hollow Water has year round road access to white communities and around half of the 1,823 citizens of Hollow Water live with the whites now. The population of Hollow Water will continue to dwindle as more of the Ojibwa's leave. The community has 155 housing units and an average household size of 6.1 persons per housing unit. Around 160 continue to speak Anishinabe at Hollow Water. Already the language is fading there. In Anishinabe, Hollow Water is pronounced as Wa-ni-pi-gow. Nipi is the Anishinabe word for water so there is a problem with the Anishinabe word for this settlement. It should be Wa-gow Ni-pi.
