Nelson House (Nisichawayasihk)


Located in north central Manitoba, the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement of Nelson House which is named Nisichawayasihk by the residents, has a population of 2,797 according to the 2011 census. The community has 420 housing units and an average household size of 6.6 persons per housing unit. Around 1,335 continue to speak Anishinabe at Nelson House or Nisichawayasihk. In Anishinabe, Nisichawayasihk means where three rivers meet. In the 1960s and 1970s, Canada was continuing on with their deliberate acts of nuisance, by forcing many of the Nisichawayasihk citizens to relocate. Some were relocated to South Indian Lake. Canada was probably still in the progress of relocating the Chippewa's from the interior of northern Manitoba and the interior of Nunavut, to Chippewa settlements further south in Manitoba. There are four Chippewa Nisichawayasihk settlements which are in close proximity to each other. This is the main one. Though they refer to each settlement by a name, i have no clue to where the settlements are so i used my own settlement names. Below is a link to a picture of this Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement known as Nelson House or Nisichawayasihk.
