Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana






Curve Lake First Nation


These Ojibway's live 39 miles or 63 kilometers east of Lake Simcoe. Below are google earth photos of this Ojibway community. Their on-Reserve population is 1,059 according to 2016's census. They have 613 dwellings with 457 lived in. Average household size is 2.3 persons per household which is below normal for Ojibway communities. They are allowing whites to live within their small nation. Their (white) population is 285. Curve Lake First Nation is not their original name. Mud Lake Reserve is. After War of 1812, land cessions to Canada were made. Sure, Ojibway People were allies of whites. Were not stupid. After a land cession was made on November 5, 1818 (it's called Rice Lake Treaty 20) ceding 1,951,000 acres, Ojibway People were left with nothing. After November 5, 1818's treaty, Ojibway leaders were outraged. They didn't agree to treaty. However, English leaders bought Ojibway leaders including one named Peter Jones, to coerce some Ojibways to small Reserves further south, where Alderville, Curve Lake, Hiawatha and Tyendinaga are located. It took considerable time to coerce at least some of them, to relocate further south. Those that stayed, are known today as Ardoch Algonquin's. They are claiming they never ceded land. Even those Ojibway Algonquin's in Quebec are claiming they never ceded land.
