South Twin Lakes CDP, Mahnomen County, Minnesota

This CDP (Census Designated Place) is located almost adjacent to and west of South Twin Lakes western shores. It covers about 5.0 sq. mi. Population is 149 according to a 2010 census. Indians make up 66% of it's population (98) but 74% (110) when including Mexicans and mixed bloods. It's located in Little Elbow Township. Ojibway housing units are located just west of South Twin Lake along BIA Road 8, BIA Road 71, Road 104 which leads to South Twin Lake, and along Highway 4. Only a cluster of housing units located along Road 104 resemble a community. Ojibway housing units are located between Snider Lakes northeastern shores and BIA Road 8. There are about 45 housing units. About 18 are mobile homes. Since there are at least 45 housing units, it's Indian population may be a bit larger than 98. Ojibway communities usually have average household sizes larger than that of whites. It's normal for Ojibway average household sizes to range from 3.5 persons per household, to over 5.0 persons per household. So this cdp's Indian population could be closer to 150. WER leaders must organize this community, name it or them and construct new housing units. A resort (Elk Horn Resort and Campgrounds) is located at Twin Lakes CDP which means population increases during summers.
