Gamblers First Nation


This community is located in southwestern Manitoba. Chief Gambler was their leader during Treaty 4 negotiations and was possibly put in power by Canada or not a real Ojibway leader. Real Ojibway leaders of those times came from their military and police totem. His name of Gambler, suggests he was a man who had money. On-Reserve population of Gambler First Nation, is 83 according to a 2016 census. That does not include those Gambler citizens who live in white communities. They are signatories to Treaty 4. Their Reserve was originally larger. Canada could not control their greed for land.
