South Indian Lake
Located in northern Manitoba, the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement of South Indian Lake has a population of 1,062 according to the 2011 census. The community has 160 housing units and an average household size of 6.6 persons per housing unit. Around 495 continue to speak Anishinabe at South Indian Lake. In the 1960s and 1970s, Canada forced many of the Chippewa's living between South Indian Lake and Nelson House, to relocate. Many were forced to relocate to South Indian Lake. However, this group of Chippewa's at South Indian Lake may be related to the Chippewa's who relocated to the interior of northern Manitoba (Sayisi or Tadoule Lake) in 1969-1970. In Anishinabe, South Indian Lake would be pronounced as Shaw-an An-ish-i-na-bay Za-ga-i-gan.
