On May 7, 1864, Mille Lacs Reservation was ceded except 1 section or 640 acres or 259 hectares. Below are links to google earth photos of Vineland. Shaw-vosh-kung of Mille Lacs Reservation, was fortunate to have a section of land set aside just for him. He did something probably considered illegal by Ojibway Nation, that American leaders were impressed with. Hole in the Day and Mis-qua-dace were also set aside land just for themselves with May 7, 1864's Treaty Agreements. Hole in the Day was set a side 320 acres or 129.5 hectares. Mis-qua-dace was set aside 640 acres or 259 hectares. Shaw-vosh-kung ceded Mille Lacs Reservation while Hole in the Day and Mis-qua-dace ceded Gull Lake (Hole in the Day's assignment) and Sandy Lake (Mis-qua-daces assignment) to the United States. Later, chief Rocky Boy took action for landless Ojibway's in the United States. He sent a letter to President Roosevelt on January 14, 1902, telling him he was leader of landless Ojibway's throughout the United States in need of Reservations. They denied his request for new Reservations yet accepted his proposal to allow his Ojibway Subjects to settle on land not surveyed. Chief Rocky Boy was granted what was Mille Lacs Reservations west portion. It was for landless Ojibway's near Mille Lacs and in Montana. Vineland originated from chief Rocky Boy's actions.
