Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
Blood First Nation
This Chippewa or Treaty 7 Reservation community, is located in extreme southern Alberta. It is connected to the Blackfeet Reservation of Montana. The population of the Blood First Nation is 4,679 according to the 2011 census. That does not include those Blood citizens who live in white communities. Chief Red Crow selected the land for the Reserve and the whites agreed but they illegally eradicated much of the Reserve without consulting with Blood leaders. The Blood are Chippewa. Read the Seven Fires Prophecy. There are several communities within the Reserve. They are Leverne, Moses Lake, Standoff, and North Cardston which is adjacent to Cardston, Alberta. A link to a map of the Reserve is below.
White historians are not being honest about the numbered treaty historically known as Treaty 7. Supposedly Treaty 6 was first carried out. That's according to white historians who insist Treaty 6 commenced in 1876. In the following year, Treaty 7 was negotiated. It don't make sense because Treaty 6 land is north of the land of Treaty 7 in Alberta. On August 21, 1877, chief Alexis took treaty (it was supposedly the one numbered 6) at Blackfoot Crossing which is located on the Chippewa's Siksika Reserve. Almost one month later on September 22, 1877, Treaty 7 was signed by The Blood Chippewa's, Kainai Chippewa's, Blackfoot Chippewa's, Stony Chippewa's, and the Sarcee (Tsuu T'ina) Chippewa's, also at Blackfoot Crossing which is located on the Chippewa's Siksika Reserve. The Sarcee are Athabascan or Dene. The Athabascan or Dene People including the Apache, Chipewyan, and Navajo, are Algonquin. According to the 1832 Edinburgh Encyclopedia the Athabascan or Dene, speak Algonquin. Click here to read the Edinburgh Encyclopedia. We have to include the Montana Reserve which includes the Ermineskin, Louis Bull, Montana, Paul, and Samson as being signatories to Treaty 7 because of chief Alexis who was also known as Bobtail. He signed the August 22, 1877 Treaty at Blackfoot Crossing. He really signed Treaty 7 and not Treaty 6. It also means the O'Chiese-Sunchild are a part of Treaty 7.
