Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
North Onigum, Leech Lake Reservation
Located in the southwestern portion of the Chippewa Leech Lake Reservation, is the Chippewa settlement of North Onigum. All four Onigum settlements are located around Agency Bay. In the Chippewa dialect of the Anishinabe language, they would (i'm not certain) refer to this settlement as Gi-way-din O-ni- gum, which means North Onigum of course. Walker, Minnesota which borders the Reservation or even lies partially within the Reservation, is located not too far away. The settlement is located north of Agency Bay. There is a lodge (resort) there where summer vactioners vacation. There is also a trailer court which is a year round permanent resident trailer court. It may have around 40 to 60 trailers. The population of north onigum may be between 180 and 240. Native Americans may make up the majority of the population. However, i am not so certain about this Onigum settlement being predominantly Native American, when compared with the others. This settlement may be a year round white resort.
