Vineland, Mille Lacs Reservation
Located on the western shores of huge lake Mille Lacs, the Chippewa CDP (census designated place) of vineland, has a population of 709. In Anishinabe the name for the settlement is Nay-yah-shiing. There are 189 housing units within the 6.7 sq. mi. the community covers. Vineland has a 3.5 per persons household average size. Most of the housing units (around 100) are located around the main district of the settlement of nayyashiing. Many others lie just north of Vineland, which has a large casino located in the main district of the small Chippewa CDP. You'll notice the casino when you view the pictures the below links lead to. It is the seven story building in vineland. It is the only predominantly Indian settlement of the Mille Lacs Reservation. Around 95% of the population is Indian, while 5% is white. Around 40% of the settlements citizens live below the poverty line, which means the citizens have yet to reap the benefits of the casino, or the casino was just recently constructed. If this poverty problem persist on we will hear of problems occurring at nayyashiing, which will resemble that of Lac du Flambeau. Elevation of the settlement is 1,254 feet above sea level. Zip code is 56359. Below are several links to pictures of Vineland, Minnesota.
