Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana






Kitcisakik


Located in western Quebec, the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement of Kitcisakik has a population of 382 according to the 2011 census. The community has 80 housing units and an average household size of 4.9 persons per housing unit. Around 225 continue to speak Anishinabe at Kitcisakik which was earlier known as Grand Lac Victoria. They are located around Grand Victoria Lake. We have learned that it is not a good idea to fish the lake and actually eat the fish. You don't want to do that. The whites are to blame. Kitchisakik is a poor community which has strong ties to it's land. It is almost an isolated community. Both the leaders of Kitcisakik and Canada, are claiming Kitcisakik land. As with the other Anishinabe communities located in southwestern Quebec, you can find little information about them. Most don't have their own websites and what little information about them is very limited. It was only recent when they ended their nomadic way of life if they haven't already. Below are links to pictures of the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement of Kitcisakik.
