Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana

Makwa Sahgaiehcan

Located in central Saskatchewan about 9 miles to the east of Ministikwan Lake, the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement of Makwa Sahgaiehcan has a population of 972 according to the 2011 census. The community has 170 housing units and an average household size of 5.7 persons per housing unit. Around 515 continue to speak Anishinabe at Makwa Sahgaiehcan. In Anishinabe, Makwa Sahgaiehcan would be pronounced as Ma-gwa Za-ga-i-gan. It means Bear Lake. Ma-gwa Za-ga-i-gan is the correct spelling of the name of the community. I can't find any settlement area for this group of Chippeway's using google earth.
