Lac du Flambeau, Lac du Flambeau Reservation
Located on the Chippewa Lac du Flambeau Reservation, the CDP (census designated place) of Lac du Flambeau, is very difficult to learn correct stats about. The Chippewa CDP of Lac du Flambeau has a population of 1,969 according to the 2010 census, with Native Americans making up 85% of the community's population, while the whites make up 10% of the CDP's population. Elevation of the community is 1,590 feet above sea level.
The settlement supposedly covers 127.7 sq. mi., which means Lac du Flambeau covers the entire Reservation. However, that is according to the whites. The google earth pictures below tell another story. Lac du Flambeau looks like it's doing better economically than the normal white city of about 1,000, which means the information is incorrect. The cdp has to have a large white population.
Belcourt is larger but does not compare to Lac du Flambeau economically. Lac du Flambeau is similar to Cass Lake which has a large white population but is obviously doing better than Cass Lake. Whites account for far more than 10% of Lac du Flambeau's population. The whites actually account for around 40% of the population of Lac du Flambeau. The area of 127.7 sq. mi., the cdp covers, is really the Reservation. It is located away from the cdp of Lac du Flambeau.
The area in the first google earth picture below covers a little less than 2.0 sq. mi. The number of housing units in that area is around 250 or more. The population is between 750 and 1,000, or about equal to the population of Cass Lake. There are up to 40 businesses in that area. Below are several google earth links to pictures of the Chippewa settlement of Lac du Flambeau.
