Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana






Henvey Inlet First Nation


This Ojibway Henvey Inlet First Nation is located along the northeastern shores of Lake Huron. Below are google earth photos of their community and a map of this large Ojibway Reserve which includes Henvey Inlet, Parry Island and Shawanaga, with Magnetawan. They are probably related to the Amikwa Chippewa's who are known as the Nez Perce and Beaver Tribe. Their tribal history probably involves many Anishinabek from Michigan and southern Ontario, fleeing to their land to escape from the whites. Their ancestors obviously fought in wars against the whites. They signed the September 9, 1850 Robinson-Huron Treaty, under chief Wagemake who signed for them. They were left with a large Reserve that is 9 miles from north to south and 36 miles from west to east. The on-Reserve population of the Ojibway Henvey Inlet First Nation is, according to a 2018 census, 192. About 9.4% speak Ojibway at Henvey Inlet. They have around 60 to 65 housing units.
