Located in Northwestern Ontario, far from any white settlements, is the small Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement of
Kasabonika. Since the settlement is located in a region where almost no whites live, it allows many of the Chippewa's of the
settlement to exploit the surrounding land and its resources, which are fishing, hunting, and trapping. There are supposedly
210 housing units in the Kasabonika settlement with only 154 being occupied. Latest population
estimate has the settlements population dropping from the 740 estimate in 2001, to 681 in 2006. However, the population
of Kasabonika is obviously much higher. Of the population 620 (nearly all) speak Anishinabe. Anishinabe is the main
language spoken in the community. All citizens are Indian. Below is a link to a picture of the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation
settlement of Kasabonika.
