Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana

Sugar Maple, Minnesota

It is another tiny Leech Lake Reservation settlement located deep in them woods. This LLR settlement has no name so i thought i name it after a street about a fifth of a mile to it's south, which has a name of Sugar Maple Lane Northeast. No housing units are located along Sugar Maple Lane. Sugar Maple or in Ojibway As-sa-na-mish, housing units, which number as many as 10, are located just west and east of Forest Route 2177. Nearly all housing units are mobile homes. This LLR settlement may actually have more housing units. A thick forest may conceal other housing units. It is located in Sugar Bush Township, Beltrami County, Minnesota which had a population of 247 according to a 2010 census. Indians make up 25.5% or 63, of it's population but 28.3% or 70, when including Mexicans and mixed bloods. About half of this township is off Reservation. Sugar Maple is located ten miles north of Cass Lake and one mile from Big Lake. Population of Sugar Maple may be between 20 and 30. Elevation is 1,344 feet above sea level. Residents may get edgy when they encounter strangers. They are, after all, located in them woods.
