Lac La Croix First Nation


This band of Ojibway's live in far western northwestern Ontario, near Minnesota. Their community is part of Rainy Lake Reserve. Below is a Satellite Image of Lac La Croix First Nation and google earth photos of other communities of Rainy Lake Reserve. Canada will not recognize this Reserve they agreed to when they negotiated with Ojibway leaders during 1869-1870's Red River Rebellion. Ojibway leaders wanted a fair treaty and large Reserves for allowing Red River Colony to become independant of Ojibway rule. Canada agreed then lied. Chief Yellow Quill (he may have been chief Big Bear) had stationed Ojibway Soldiers at Portage la Prairie to prevent whites, Eskimos and mixed bloods from expanding west from Red River Colony. That led to those negotiations that led to creations of Rainy Lake Reserve and Lake of the Woods Reserve. Both are quite large. On-Reserve population of Lac La Croix First Nation is 177 according to 2016's census. They have 76 dwellings with 60 lived in. Average household size is 3.0 persons per household. Ojibway Language is widely spoken. Around 95 people speak Ojibway at Lac la Croix First Nation. Their isolation has helped keep their language alive. Today, there are 14 so called Rainy Lake Reserves. However, Canada lied. That original Rainy Lake Reserve is yet in existence.
