Lac La Ronge First Nation


Located in north-central Saskatchewan, is this Ojibway Kasba Reservation community or communities, that make up Lac La Ronge. Below are google earth photos of Lac la Ronge First Nation. Population of Lac La Ronge is 2,017 according to a 2016 census. That does not include Lac La Ronge citizens who live in white communities. They have 480 dwellings with 441 lived in. Average household size is 4.5 persons per household. Around 565 people speak Cree which is corrupted Ojibway Language according to Lewis and Clark. Population of La Ronge is 2,688 according to a 2016 census. La Ronge is predominantly Indian. Air Ronge is also predominantly Indian. It has a population of 1,032 according to a 2006 census. Total Indian population of these communities is over 4,000. These people think they are Cree which is incorrect. They themselves know they came from Grand Rapids, Manitoba. They must read Treaty 5 text. They are Saulteaux Ojibway People. They are closely related to Indian folks at Montreal Lake. In fact, both signed an adhesion to Treaty 6 on February 11, 1889. They'll claim they've lived where they live now for a long a time. However, their 1889 adhesion signing to Treaty 6 indicates they were recent arrivals. They were probably led there by chief Kinistin. Cree is a derogatory name derived from Kwe which means woman in Ojibway Language. You may think by a way they spell kwe, it's pronounced like Kwe as in queen. It isn't. It's pronounced like kway. Whites consider these northern Ojibway's to be women.
