Rocky Boy Tribe
Chippewa Indians of
Chippewas of Nawash First Nation
This band of Ojibway Indians territory is located on the Bruce Peninsula in Ontario, Canada. Below are several google earth photos of this Ojibway Reserve. You don't want to know about their history with white leaders who lied to them and still lie to them. Their nation was originally known as Cape Croker Indian Reserve. They also go by Chippewa's of Nawash and Neyaashiinigmiing. Their nation covers an area of 63.81 sq. km. or 24.6 sq. mi. That's after all those broken treaties. They claim chief Nawash fought beside Tecumseh during War of 1812. If he did, he fought on their enemies side. Their enemy being American whites and English whites. Tecumseh was a spy who worked on behalf of whites who paid him, as they did his nephew Spemica Lawba. Chief Sassaba was probably their highest ranking leader during War of 1812. What happened after War of 1812? English demands for Ojibway land. Their nation is a beautiful one that has unique features. At their extreme southwest and southeast, are three mountains that stand out. Their names are Sydney Bay Bluff, Jones Bluff and Kings Point Bluff.
Within their territory are several communities. They include Cape Croker, Clay Hills, Halfway Point, Little Port Elgin, Omeedjilawh Camp, Makataewaukawauk and Nayausheeng. None of them have appearances of organized communities. Their housing units are located along roads. They have no communities yet in their southwest. 2011 census reported their on-Reserve population to be 667. It does not include off-Reserve population. They have 259 housing units. Average household size is 2.6 persons per housing unit. Around 100 or more living at Chippewa's of Nawash, know some degree of Ojibway. However, all speak only English except about 10. They will not follow Seven Fires Prophecy (place your detectives there to find out if they are being paid off) yet do have strong ties to Saugeen Reserve which is 19 miles to their southwest.
