West Keweenaw, L'Anse Reservation
Located in the western portion of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, the Chippewa settlement (it is rural) of West Keweenaw is spread out over the northern portion of the L'Anse Reservation, especially along Keweenaw Bay. It covers quite a large area. Using google earth i counted 50 or so housing units over the large area. Since it is common for Chippewa settlements to have average household sizes of 3.0 to 4.0 persons per household, west keweenaw probably has a population between 150 and 200. Though i am not certain that this settlement is in fact a Chippewa settlement, i will for the sake of the Chippewa's of the L'Anse Reservation (the settlement is on the Reservation) claim that it is an Indian settlement. Most of the housing units are situated next to the shores of Lake Superior. Most of the citizens are probably Native American.
