Kipawa


Located in extreme western Quebec, is the Ojibway town of Kipawa. Below are links to google earth photos of Kipawa. This Ojibway town of Kipawa has a population of 268 according to 2011's census. Their community has 100 housing units and an average household size of 2.7 persons per housing unit. Kipawa is located adjacent to Lake Kipawa's shores. Since many white settlements are located in this region, very few people speak Anishinabe at Kipawa. These Ojibway People of Kipawa, are related to Ojibways who lived further south near where Alderville, Curve Lake and Hiawatha are. They are also related to Algonquin Ojibways to their east and Atikamekw Ojibway's even further east. Obedjiwan was probably their capital 400 to 500 years ago. Ogima Sagima led Ojibway's to Obedjiwan from Manitoulin Island (Ghost's Island) to what is now Quebec, using Gatineau River.
