Long Point First Nation


Located in Quebec, this Algonquin Reserve known as Long Point First Nation, is an Anishinabe or Ojibway community. Below are links to google earth photos of Long Point First Nation of Quebec. They live in a area in Quebec where few whites live. A forest surrounds their small town. Lac Simard (it's a rather large lake) is a half a mile or 0.90 kilometers to their west. They obviously participated in Treaty 9 negotiations at Abitibi in June of 1906 yet Canada supposedly only included Ojibway People from Ontario. Their on-Reserve population is 104 according to 2016's census. 2011's census reported their population to be 219. Something is not right about that information. At their website, they claim around 400 people live there. If 400 people live there, their average household size is near 5.0 persons per household. They also claimed to have not ceded any of their land. They have 65 dwellings with 59 lived in. However, using google earth, i counted around 70 to 80 housing units. It's probably closer to 75 to 80 dwellings. Average household size is 1.8 persons per household which is way below normal for Ojibway communities. Ojibway Language has died out there. They tend to refer to this Ojibway Reserve as an Indian settlement.
