Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
South Leech Lake, Leech Lake Reservation
Located along the southern shores of Leech Lake Reservation, is what appears to be another Chippewa settlement on the Leech Lake Reservation. If you view the pictures the links below lead to, you will notice small red markers. They indicate white owned resorts. Since there are three resorts around this settlement i refer to as South Leech Lake, i really can't tell for certain if the settlement is in fact another Chippewa settlement. However, since the settlement is located within the boundaries of Leech Lake Reservation, it likely means the settlement is predominantly Chippewa. Using google earth, i counted what appears to be 60 or 70 housing units in the small settlement. Since Chippewa settlements tend to have household size averages between 3.0 and 4.0 persons per housing unit, the population of South Leech Lake may be between 180 and 280. The settlement may be similar to North Onigum, which may be a year round white resort. Below are several links to pictures of the Chippewa settlement of South Leech Lake, Minnesota.
