Halfway River First Nation


This Ojibway community is located in northeastern British Columbia, northwest of Fort St. John, and home to Ojibway's and supposedly Beaver Indians who we know are Cree Ojibway's. Ojibway People didn't want nothing to do with Beaver Indians or Cree People. They forced them to retreat from Hudson Bay to north Alberta and northeast British Columbia. This Reserve is not a Beaver Indians Reserve. It is an Ojibway Reserve. They are from Hudson Hope Ojibway Indian Band. Total population of Halfway River First Nation is 172, according to 2016's census. That does not include Halfway River First Nation citizens who live in white communities. They were a part of Hudson Hope Indian Band. They were to cowardly to follow prophecy and broke away from them in 1971. However, they are yet closely related to Moberly Lake Saulteau Ojibway's. They controlled land along them Rocky Mountains well north of Halfway River, south to Intersection Mountain in British Columbia, which is almost adjacent to British Columnia's border with Alberta. Rocky Mountain Trench (real Continental Divide) was possibly their western boundary. To their south and southwest, are Shuswap Ojibway's. We know Athabascan People are Algonquin's.
