Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
Ontonagan, L'Anse Reservation
Located in the western portion of the Chippewa L'Anse Reservation, a couple of miles north of Baraga, Michigan which is located on the Reservation, is the Chippewa settlement of Ontonagan. Though i refer to this Chippewa settlement as Ontonagan, which is the name of another Michigan Chippewa Reservation to the west of the L'Anse Reservation which has no Chippewa population, i am naming this area on the L'Anse Reservation Ontonagan, to honor the Ontonagan Chippewa Reservation which has no Chippewa population. There may be upwards to 80 or more housing units located in ontonagan, which is rural. I don't know if Native Americans make up the majority of the population, or if the whites do. If Native Americans make up the majority of the settlements population than the settlement has a population between 240 and 360, because Chippewa settlements usually have houshold size averages between 3.0 to 4.0 persons per household. A couple miles to the south is the city of Baraga, which is supposed to be a Chippewa city (it is on the L'Anse Reservation) but the whites make up 68% of the city's population, while the Chippewa's make up 29% of the city's population. Elevation of the settlement is 810 feet above sea level. Below are several links to pictures of the beautiful Chippewa settlement of Ontonagan, Michigan. You'll notice that the pictures were taken during late autumn when the beauty of spring and summer had disappeared. You will also notice that the first picture includes the city of Baraga which is about two miles to the south of Ontonagan.
