Rocky Boy Tribe
Chippewa Indians of
The Pas is located some four miles to the east of Moostissoostikwan, Manitoba. With The Pas in close proximity, many of the Chippewa's from Voostisvoostikwan are employed. Their village is a beautiful small community. However, many of the people are probably white. Moostissoostikwan is considered to be a part of the rural municipality of Kelsey, Manitoba. According to the 2011 census, Moostissoostikwan has a population of 2,272. It decreased by 181 from the 2006 census. Kelsey covers 867.64 sq. km., or 335.0 sq. mi. I have no idea what the demographics of Moostissoostikwan are. In the 2006 census, it was reported that 1,055 of the municipality's population of 2,480 was Indian. The village (the entire rural municipality of Kelsey) has a total of 981 housing units with 851 occupied. The average household size is 2.7 persons per housing unit which is way below normal for Chippewa settlements. Few Chippewa's speak Anishinabe at Voostisvoostikwan.
