Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
Bridge River 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 Salishan 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 (Bridge River) is 192 according to the 2011 census. That does not include those Bridge River citizens who live in white communities.
