Ebb & Flow First Nation


This Ojibway community is located in southwestern Manitoba, along western shores of Ebb & Flow Lake (aka Lake Manitoba) and is a community of Kasba Reservation. Below are links to google earth photos of this Ojibway Town. On August 21, 1871 Ojibway leaders signed Treaty 2 and ceded land in southern Manitoba. Ebb and Flow leaders were signatories to Treaty 2. Ebb & Flow and O-Chi-Chak-Ko-Sipi (it's really pronounced Ad-ji-jaad-do Sip-pi - O-Chi-Chak-Ko-Sip-pi is Cree), are actually same people. Historically, they were led by ogima (chief) Broken Finger. However, after Saulteaux Ojibway leader Broken Finger passed away in 1874, friction arose between Ebb & Flow and Crane River, which led to most Saulteaux Ojibway's settling at Ebb & Flow. Before 1869-1870's Rebellion, chief Yellow Quill stationed numerous Ojibway Soldiers at Portage la Prairie, to prevent whites, Eskimos and mixed bloods from expanding west. In response to Ojibway demands for a fair treaty, English representatives met with chief Yellow Quill and other Ojibway leaders, and both parties agreed to treaty. However, English leaders did not honor Treaty 2 agreements. On-Reserve population of Ebb & Flow First Nation is 1,341 according to 2016's census. Ebb & Flow has 391 housing units with 376 lived in. Average household size is 3.6 persons per household. They have three communities. Ebb & Flow, Comeau and an unnamed one north of Ebb & Flow. Some 300 speak Ojibway.
