Cockburn Island First Nation & History
This band of Chippewa Indians and Ottawa and Potawatomi, live on Manitoulin Island, which is within the northern part of Lake Huron, in Ontario. Their tribal history included many wars fought against the invading whites, and many of their ancestors fleeing to far northern Ontario to escape from the white threat. They fought in the Beaver Wars, French and Indian Wars, American Revolutionary War, and the War of 1812. Their ancestors signed treaties which set aside all of Manitoulin Island to be their Reserve. However, the whites broke treaty and stole most of Manitoulin Island. Their First Nation or First Nations, were established in the 19th century. The community of Cockburn Island has a population of 63 and a total population of 163. They are also known as the Zhiibaahaasings First Nation. Their Reserve is really all of Manitoulin Island and also Cockburn Island. They have no citizens living on Cockburn Island however. Cockburn Island Reserve covers 958.3 hectares or 2,368 acres. Cockburn Island is just west of Manitoulin Island.
