Peguis, Manitoba


Their history originates in the Selkirk-Winnipeg region. Below are several google earth photos of Peguis. A Reserve known as St. Peters Reserve was set aside for them in the 19th century. Since Fisher River is near Peguis, it likely means those folks at Fisher River, were among the first Ojibway's from St. Peters Reserve to relocate north. That happened with 1875's Treaty 5 signing. Peguis is one of as many as 10 villages within this Ojibway Reserve. It's a widely scattered settlement or disorganized. About 1.3 miles or 2.1 kilometers southeast of Peguis's main portion, is a cluster of housing units, we will name South Peguis. Another cluster of housing units is located 0.6 miles or 1.0 kilometers southwest of Peguis's main portion, we will name Central Peguis. There are apartment buildings, so calculating Peguis's total housing units is difficult. It's anywhere from 100 to 150 housing units however. Population of Peguis is anywhere from 330 to 500. Average household size for this Ojibway Reserve is 3.3 persons per household. Canada does not include Reserve towns populations during census time. Peguis mean "Profit By" in Ojibway Language. Chief Peguis obviously profited from some sort of endeavor!
