Chapleau Ojibway First Nation
This Ojibway Indians settlement is located 3.0 miles south of Chapleau, Ontario. Below are several google earth photos of Chapleau First Nation. In 1905, Treaty 9 commissioners reported that Ojibway People from around Chapleau, did not need to sign Treaty 9 because they belonged to Ojibway's from Moose Factory and English River, who had signed Treaty 9 which is an indication of a cover-up. They are actually signatories to 1850s Robinsin-Superior Treaty which created three Reserves. One is Fort Williams Reserve. Another is Nipigon Reserve. The third is Michipicoten Reserve which Chapleau is a part of. Canada refused to agree to accept their part of the 1850 agreement. Ojibway leaders gathered many of the people and left the area or followed prophecy. The Michipicoten Reserve is very large and includes Chapleau along with Henvey Inlet, Magnetawan, Parry Island and Shawanaga. According to a 2011 census, Chapleau Ojibway First Nation has a population of 31. They have a total of 11 housing units or dwelling places, with 10 lived in.
