Bonaparte First Nation


This Chippewa Treaty 8 Reservation community is located in southwestern British Columbia. It is a few miles to the northeast of Vancouver. They are Chippewa and Shuswap with an admixture of Asian. An Asian people from either China or from the Philippines, invaded western North America centuries before the white onslaught and were defeated by the Chippewa soldiers. The population of this First Nation (Bonaparte) is 185 according to the 2011 census. That does not include those Bonaparte citizens who live in white communities.
