Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
Located in Quebec, the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement of Lac Simon has a population of 1,560 according to the 2011 census. The community has 250 housing units and an average household size of 6.1 persons per housing unit. Around 1,015 continue to speak Anishinabe at Lac Simon. The reason for the high number of speakers of Anishinabe at Lac Simon is few white settlements are located in the region. The settlement is located almost adjacent to Lake Simon. The settlement of Lac Simon probably commenced after 1941. In the 20th century, the whites killed off the deer and probably many of the other wildlife in this region to force the Anishinabe people to end their nomadic way of life.
