Garden River First Nation
This Ojibway Robinson Huron Reservation community, is located just northeast of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontaro. Missanabie and Batchewana are located just to the southwest. Below are links to two communities of Garden River First Nation. Their tribal history probably involved many Ojibway People from Michigan and southern Ontario, fleeing to their land to escape from the whites. Their ancestors obviously fought in the wars against the whites. They signed the September 9, 1850 Robinson-Huron Treaty, but did not cede their land. They did, however, give the whites their permission to build roads and railroads, as well as trading posts, and to lumber and mineral rights. During that time (1850) Canada was far more interested in lumber and minerals. They knew the land was covered by a thin layer of poor quality soil which, to better describe it, was very rocky and not good for agriculture. Ojibwa leaders agreed to the Robinson Huron Treaty because Canada lied to them. Ojibwa leaders left the treaty knowing they had reached an agreement in which Canada recognized the Ojibwa Nation owned the entire land area of the September 9, 1850 Robinson Huron Treaty. The population of the Ojibway Robinson Huron Reservation First Nation of Garden River, is according to a 2011 census, 1,107. They are also known by their Anishnawbe name, which is gi-ti-gan si-pi, which means Garden River of course. They may be related to the Amikwa Chippewa's who are also known as the Nez Perce and Beaver Tribe.
