Mahkonce, Minnesota


Located in White Earth Reservations northeastern portion, is Mahkonce (it's pronounced as Mah-koos) which means Little Bear in Ojibway. It is located in Clover Township along County Highway 4. Using google earth i counted around 15 housing units scattered along County Highway 4 up to Road T59. That region is heavily forested with a few farms here and there, as well as a few lakes. It is not a city or town but just an area widely spread out and fortunately has its own name. Most people living there are Indian. I would estimate Mahkonce population being near 30 to 50. Clover Township has a population of 121 according to a 2010 census. Indians make up 66.9% of it's population or 81. Mixed bloods make up 8.3% of Clover Townships Population or 10. Mahkonce is just west of West Roy Lake which is a part of La Prairie Township, and north of Naytahwaush. That region is especially beautiful during spring, summer, and autumn. WER leaders must organize Mah-konce better and build new housing units. Below are several links to google earth photographs of Mahkonce, Minnesota and links to other White Earth Reservation communities.
