Maple Grove Township, White Earth Reservation
It is located in Becker County, Minnesota, and in the southern part of White Earth Reservation. Maple Grove Township has a population of 455 according to the 2010 census. Indians make up 56% of the townships population but 69% when including Mexicans and mixed bloods. Most of Strawberry Lake is located within this township. All of White Earth Lake is in Maple Grove Township. Maple Grove Township covers 37.0 sq. mi. Nearly all land between Strawberry Lake west to Birch Lake, up to Bad Boy Lake, Net Lake, Bass Lake, Little Bass Lake, and Black Earth Lake, down to Chain Lake, then back to Stawberry Lake, is an undeveloped land. The whites have been allowed to settle along the shores of Strawberry Lake, White Earth Lake and Net Lake. Most may live along the shores of White Earth Lake. Many Live along the western and southern shores of Strawberry Lake. However, many of the housing units are used by vacationers. Indian settlements are located at Jack Haw Lake, the eastern and southeastern shores of Strawberry Lake along Reservation Highway 23, near the southeastern shores of Net Lake along Reservation Highway 20, and probably near Bad Boy Lake along Highway 34 and John Sullivan Road. Another small Ojibwa settlement may be located along the northwestern shores of White Earth Lake along 295th Ave. The principle road going east to west in that area, is Cherry Lake Road. Using google earth you can see many areas where lakes have recently dried up. And there are many of them. It is one of the most important locations within the borders of White Earth Reservation. We must worry about that land area because it is not protected. It is almost entirely a wilderness. And since we know it is undeveloped, it means that land area was never sold to any non Indians. It must be protected and allowed to be exploited by the Indian citizens of White Earth Reservation. Below is a link to a photograph of Maple Grove Township, White Earth Reservation.
