Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana






Batchewana First Nation


This band of Ojibway Indians live in northern Ontario. Their Reserve is located adjacent to and north and west of Sault Ste. Marie which was their most important location in 1492. Below is a map of this large Ojibway Reserve and google earth photos. Batchewana, Garden River, Thessalon and Mississagi are one Reserve. Their Reserve covers near 2,000 sq. mi. or near 5,180 sq. km. They are signatories to 1850's Robinson-Huron Treaty. Chief Nebenaigoching signed for Batchewana while chiefs Shinguacouse (Shing-wa-cos), Keokouse and Ponekeosh signed for Garden River, Thessalon and Mississagi. They did not want to leave that area. It was possibly part of Manitoulin Islands around 1492. Ojibway leaders considered 1 mile to be 1 league which is 3 miles. In 1859, they were forced to sign Pennyfather Treaty which is illegal. We don't recognize it. Batchewana communities include Goulais Bay, Obedjiwan (same name as Obedjiwan located in Quebec) and Rankin Location. They also claim Whitefish Island as theirs. Rankin Location is their largest community. However, Rankin Location is now a part of Sault Ste. Marie which means it needs to be relocated. Indians will not survive there. Same at Garden River. Leaders of both Ojibway communities must relocate north of their current locations. Batchewana leaders need to affiliate with Michipicoten Reserve. Their ancestors obviously signed 1850's Robinson-Superior Treaty. On-Reserve population of Batchewana First Nation is, according to a 2018 census estimate, 792. Ojibway is no longer spoken at Batchewana. Garden River has an on-Reserve population of 1,125 according to 2016's census. Thessalon has on on-Reserve population of 124 according to 2016's census. Mississagi has an on-Reserve population of 411 according to 2016's census. Place your detectives at these Ojibway Reserves. Spy on their leaders to find out if they were bribed to help whites exterminate Indians. You already know what happened yet I don't. I do know Indians are not going to survive there. However, they can establish communities well north in their domains. Also preordain 19th century Ojibway Traditionalists to migrate far north, northeast and northwest to avoid possible extermination.
