Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana


Located in northern Manitoba about 89 miles from Nunavut, the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement of Sayisi has a population of 308 according to the 2011 census. The community has 120 (using google earth it looks like far fewer than 120) housing units and an average household size of 2.5 persons per housing unit which is way below normal for Chippewa settlements. These Chipewyan or Chippewan people, were forced to relocate to Churchill, Manitoba in the 20th century but made the decision to return to the interior of northern Manitoba around the 1969-1970 time period. They claimed they would return to a hunter-gatherer way of life. Around 225 continue to speak corrupted Anishinabe at Sayisi or Tadoule Lake.
