Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
Whitefish Lake, Lac du Flambeau Reservation
Located in the extreme southern part of the Chippewa Lac du Flambeau Reservation, is the settlement of Whitefish Lake. Part of the settlements housing units are located along the northwestern shores of Patterson Lake. Housing units are located all around Whitefish Lake, as well as a white resort i have tried to not include in estimating the settlements population. Using google earth, i counted what appears to be between 40 and 50 housing units around the two lakes mentioned. Since Chippewa settlements tend to have household size averages between 3.0 and 4.0 persons per housing unit, the population of Whitefish Lake may be between 120 and 200. Elevation of the settlement is 1,600 feet above sea level. Below are several links to pictures of the Chippewa settlement of Whitefish Lake, Wisconsin.
