Located in northwestern Ontario, far from any white settlements, is the large Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement of Pikangikum. Many of the settlements citizens still make a living by fishing, hunting, and trapping. Many also own cabins throughout the region where they reside. There are 387 total housing units in Pikangikum and a population of 2,482. That would give Pikangikum a household size average of 5.1 persons per housing unit, which is not unusual for Chippewa settlements. I have no idea how many of the settlements citizens speak Anishinabe, but since Pikangikum is located far from any white settlements, it means Anishinabe is spoken by most of the community's population and the population of Pikangikum is probably closer to 4,000 to 5,000. It is common for isolated Ojibwa communities to have several families sharing one home. Pikangikum is pronounced as Pi-kan-g-kum. The "g" is pronounced as you would pronounce such English words as "jeep, job, just and so on." Usually Anishinabe words with "g" starting a syllable is pronounced as such English words as "get, gone, great and so on." Below is a link to a picture of the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement of Pikangikum.
