West Onigum, Leech Lake Reservation
Located in the southwestern portion of the Chippewa Leech Lake Reservation, is the Chippewa settlement of West Onigum. All four Onigum settlements are located around Agency Bay. In the Chippewa dialect of the Anishinabe language, they would (i'm not certain) refer to this settlement as Nin-ga-bi-yin O-ni-gum, which means West Onigum of course. Walker, Minnesota which borders the Reservation or even lies partially within the Reservation, is located not too far away. There are around 60 or so housing units located in west onigum which is more properly known as Onigum. The population of west onigum may be between 180 and 240. Native Americans make up the majority of the population. Below are several links to pictures of the beautiful Chippewa settlement of West Onigum, Minnesota.
