Squaw Lake, Minnesota


Located in Leech Lake Reservations northeast, Squaw Lake has a tiny population of 107 according to a 2010 census. Below are several google earth photos of Squaw Lake, Minnesota and links to other Leech Lake Reservation communities. A 2000 census reported that 63.6% were Native American and 31.3% were white. A dramatic change obviously happened between 2000 and 2010. Only 51.4% reported to be Native American, while 46.7% reported to be white, in that 2010 census. I don't know how this city got it's name. It's situated between Round Lake and Natures Lake. This LLN city has 63 (i counted over 70 housing units using google earth - not including businesses) housing units yet only 39 are lived in. If there are 75 housing in Squaw Lake, it's population would be 202. There are two sections of this city. A north one (north of Popple River) and a south one (south of Popple River). Most Ojibway's live in Squaw Lakes north or north of Popple River, while most whites live in it's south or south of Popple River. Most of Squaw Lakes north sections housing units, which number around 40, are located along County Road 149. Natures Lake Path, Smith Point Road, Village Road and a few along Highway 46 and a few more along County Road 163, are where those other housing units are located. It's population is 107. Average household size is 2.7 persons per household. There is a Pow Wow ground adjacent to Eagleview School. I will not include information about those housing units which number 35 or more south of Popple River and those 6 or 7 businessess. Whites are trying to assimilate Ojibway's. Leaders of Leech Lake Reservation must address this issue of whites taking over or construct new housing units north of Popple River and proclaim Squaw Lake north of Popple River, to be a distinct community. Rename it "Man Sip-pi" or Choppy River. This city is supposedly not doing well financially. That could be because of discrimination. There are 10 or so businessess in Squaw Lake. Around 49% of it's citizens live below poverty line. Elevation is 1,339 feet above sea level. It covers less than 0.5 sq. mi. or less than 1.0 sq. km. Zip code is 56681.
