Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
Alexis First Nation
This Chippewa Blackfeet Reservation community is located about 35 miles northwest of Edmonton, Alberta. It is connected to the Blackfeet Reservation of Montana. On August 21, 1877, Chippewa leaders signed Treaty 7 (not Treaty 6) which set aside the huge Chippewa Blackfeet Reservation or Treaty 7 Reservation. Chief Alexis who also went by the name Bobtail and Keskayo, signed the treaty. This community is mainly Chippewa but the whites are fooling the citizens of Alexis by claiming they are Lakota. Total population of Alexis is 983. That does not include those Alexis First Nation citizens who live in white communities. Their community is located adjacent to Lac Ste. Anne which is 11 miles north of the Wabamun Lake Ojibwa's. Below is a link to a map of the Alexis Reserve.
