Native Americans account for 51.4% of Squaw Lakes population. Whites 46.7%. Asian 0.9%. Mixed bloods 0.9% also. However, there's a discrepancy most don't know about. There are two distinct areas. One is located on Leech Lake Reservation owned land, while another is located on "Private Land." When Minnesota Forest Reserve (now known as Chippewa National Forest) was created on June 27, 1902 or about same time chief Rocky Boy was first mentioned in newspapers, nearly all of LLR was included within Minnesota Forest Reserve. What American leaders did on June 27, 1902, was restore Leech Lake Reservation created on May 7, 1864. Chippewa National Forest nearly has the same boundaries as Leech Lake Reservation from 1864. However, they excluded certain areas as "State Land" or "Private Land," so whites could invade and colonize LLR illegally. Though they include housing units south of Popple River as being within Squaw Lake city limits, we don't. South of Popple River land is 'Private." North of Popple River it's LLR owned land. There are 63 housing units, with 39 lived in. Average household size is 2.74 persons per household. That's for all of Squaw Lake. North of Popple River there are 40 or more dwellings including businessess and a school. There are 35 or so houses. Ojibway communities usually have average household sizes of 3.0 persons per housing unit or higher. That portion of Squaw Lake north of Popple River has a population of between 100 and 125. Squaw Lake south of Popple River has around 35 dwellings. As many as 10 are businessess. It's population is around 50 or so. Most Ojibway's live north of Popple River, while most whites live south of Popple River. There is a Pow Wow ground adjacent to Eagleview School. Squaw Lake has a land area of 0.84 sq. mi. or 2.18 sq. km. Elevation is 1,339 feet above sea level or 408 meters. Zip code is 56681. 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-na Sip-pi" or Choppy River.
