Snyder Lake, White Earth Reservation


It is located along County Road 4 within Little Elbow Township, on the southern side of Lake Snyder. Nearly half of the 30 or more housing units, are located along Ponderosa Lane and Water Front Lane. About half of the housing units are mobile homes. To the south is the rural community of Gull Lake. The population of Snyder Lake is probably between 60 and 90. However, Ojibwa communities usually have average household sizes larger than that of the whites. It's common for Ojibwa household sizes to range from 3.5 persons per household, to over 5.0 persons per household. So the Indian population of Snyder Lake could be closer to 100. Little Elbow Township has a population of 161 according to the 2010 census. Indians make up 71% of the townships population but 77% when including mixed bloods. Elevation is 1,485 feet above sea level. Below are several google earth photos of Snyder Lake, White Earth Reservation.



Historically, it is thought that the Mille Lacs Chippewa's were relocated to this location of White Earth Reservation including the area around Twin Lakes. However, the United States Deported many Montana Ojibwa's to Minnesota. It was not the Chippewa's from Mille Lacs who were Deported to the Gull Lake and Twin Lakes region. It was the Montana Ojibwa's who were Deported to the Gull Lake and Twin Lakes region. According to the December 4, 1902 Minneapolis Journal, the Mille Lacs Chippewa's were going to soon arrive to the Gull Lake and Twin Lakes region and take up allotments. At that same time, chief Rocky Boy was negotiating with American representatives about finding land for the Montana Little Shell Chippewa's. Naytahwaush was also settled by Montana Ojibwa's. Below are several google earth photos of Snyder Lake, White Earth Reservation.
