Their history originates in the Selkirk-Winnipeg region. A Reserve known as the St. Peters Reserve was set aside for them in the 19th century. Knowing from prophecy that the whites could not be trusted, led Ojibway leaders to leave the Reserve to relocate to the north and west. So many left, the government of Canada allowed them to be recognized as native to the region in Manitoba where they now live, which is within Treaty 2 land area but may actually be within Treaty 5 land area. Since the Fisher River adhesion to Treaty 5 was dated August 24, 1908, we can include Peguis as being a Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation community. It is very close to Fisher River as is Jackhead or Kinonjeoshtegon. Today, the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation community of Peguis-Fisher River is among the largest Indian communities in Canada. More Ojibway's would live there if they had no road access to white communities. The 2011 census reported that the community of Peguis has a population of 2,609. It increased by 96 from the 2006 population of 2,513. Most of the citizens live along a few roads. The Anishinabe language is not in use at Peguis. The community of Peguis has 771 housing units. It gives the community a 3.3 persons per housing unit average. Below are several google earth photos of the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation community of Peguis.
