Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana






Long Lost Lake, Minnesota


It is located 14 miles north of Pine Point. It is within Long Lost Lake Township which has a population of 43 according to a 2010 census. Originally, Long Lost Lake Township was within South Clearwater Unorganized Territory. There are 121 housing units in South Clearwater Unorganized Territory. Whites make up 64% of that unorganized territory's population of 72. Chippewa's make up 36% of it's population or around 25. Most Chippewa's live at Long Lost Lake. And their population is higher. Nearly all their housing units are located on a peninsula along Long Lost Lakes southern shores, which had around 20 or more housing units. Around a 1/4 are mobile homes. Long Lost Lake (Gir-nos Ba-na-di-si Ga-miiz - in Ojibway long is pronounced as ginosiwin - (gir - long) - (nos - plural) - (si - past tense) - (win - present tense) and lost is pronounced as banadisiwin (ba-na - lose) - (dis - plural) - (di-si - past tense or lost) - (win - present tense), is located along Reservation Highway 22. Using google earth, you can clearly see a flood hit that area. Several homes were submerged by flood waters. Population of Long Lost Lake where that flood happened or peninsula is (it's obviously a permanent settlement), was probably between 40 and 60, before that flood. However, it is lower now as a result of that flood. Possibly between 30 and 40. As many as eight housing units were flooded. Now there may be only 15 or so housing units. Most residents are probably Indian. WER leaders must organize this settlement, name it and construct new housing units along Reservation Highway 22, some distance away from Long Lost Lake to avoid floods.
