Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana






Magnetawan First Nation


These Ojibway Indians live adjacent to Magnetawan Rivers south shores. 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. Their community is small and dates from the corrupt 1850 Robinson-Huron Treaty. Their ogima or chief, Pa-meq-uo-naish, was signatory to that Robinson-Huron Treaty which fraudulently detailed what land these Ojibwa's led by chief Pamequonaishcung (since his name ends with a locative or cung, it's really Pa-meq-wo-nash), were left with. Ojibway leaders agreed to cede land provided they were left with large Reserves. Magnetawan was left with a Reserve that commenced 7 miles from Magnetawan Rivers mouth and extended 9 miles from north to south and 36 miles from west to east. In the corrupted 1850 Robinson-Huron Treaty Text, the whites wrote 3 miles from north to south and 6 miles east and west. Ojibway leaders considered 1 mile to be 1 league or 3 miles. They blamed the white secretary for the corruption. Magnetawan First Nation on-Reserve population is 79 according to a 2018 census. They have 38 housing units. Average household size is 2.4 persons per household. No one speaks Ojibway at Magnetawan. These Ojibway's are woodland Ojibwa's.
