Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
New Post, Lac Courte Oreilles Reservation
Located in the east central portion of the Chippewa Lac Courte Oreilles Reservation, is the CDP (census designated place) of New Post. It is not really a town but a community that is spread out over 27.4 sq. mi. There is one location where a large group of housing units is situated, which we will refer to as the CDP's main location. That location has around 40 housing units. Native Americans make up 65% of the population. Whites make up 34% of the CDP's population. New Post has a population of 367 and supposedly 425 housing units. That would mean most of the housing units in new post, are cottages owned by non Indians who vacation on the Reservation during the summer months. Financially, the citizens of New Post are doing well. Around 16% live below the poverty line. Elevation of the settlement is 1,329 feet above sea level.
