Located in northwest Ontario, about 13 miles due east of Big Trout Lake, and far from any white settlements and year round paved roads, is the small Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement of Wapekeka. The population of the small Chippewa settlement is 350. Using google earth i counted what appears to be around 90 or so housing units in the settlement. However, an online site claims the settlement of Wapekeka has a good 100 housing units. That would give Wapekeka a 3.5 persons per housing unit size, which is typical for Chippewa settlements. Many of the settlements citizens still rely on fishing, hunting, and trapping for a livelihood. Since they have an endless supply of natural resources, it could mean their population is much higher than is claimed. Many probably have cabins out in the deep woods, they use while out fishing, hunting, and trapping. Their ancestors claimed they did not cede their land to the whites. Below is a link to a picture of the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement of Wapekeka.
