Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
Broughton Island & History
This mixed Anishinabe-Athabasacan-Inuit band or community, is situated on baffin island, north of hudson bay. Their tribal history may have involved either war with the powerful Anishinabek or an alliance with them. This inuit community of broughton island (it is also known as qikiqtarjuaq), has a population of 490, and is located in Nunavut. For some reason the inuit people of nunavut use the Anishinabe syllabic writing system, which probably indicates a close relationship with the powerful Anishinabek in the past, and a large Anishinabe population in nunavut.
