Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
Heart Lake First Nation
Located northeast of Edmonton, Alberta, the Chippewan (Chipewyan) Heart Lake First Nation, has a total of two Reserves. They are Heart Lake 167 and Heart Lake 167A. Total area is 4,504 hectares or 11,129 acres. The Reserve population is 183. Heart Lake is within treaty 8 land area but they were brought under the control of Ojibway soldiers during the 1885 Northwest Rebellion. Most stayed nuetral during the conflict which greatly angered the soldiers of the Anishinabe Nation. Heart Lake is only a few miles from treaty 6 land area. Heart Lake is not far from the Cold Lake Air Weapons Range which is not well received. Heart Lake is close enough to Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation land to be included as a community of the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation. Below is a map of the Heart Lake Reserve.
