Michipicoten First Nation


This community of Ojibway Indians live along Lake Superior's northeastern shores. Wawa, Ontario is a few miles to their east. Below is a correct map of their Reserve or nation and google earth photos of their land. Their tribal history obviously includes war with whites and allowing large numbers of Anishinabek from Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin to live on their land in 19th century. 1850's Robinson-Superior Treaty was agreed upon by Ojibway leaders who were lied to by whites. White leaders knew land north of Lake Superior was nearly all wetlands and contained an incredible number of small and large lakes and it's soil was and is, rocky. They didn't like it. As one goes further north, more unappealing land is. Below are those links to google earth photos of their land. Below that is more information about Michipicoten.

White leaders sent their negotiators to Ojibway leaders and reached a treaty agreement in which three Reserves were set aside. One at Michipicoten, another at Gull River and one at Fort William. Michipicoten, under leadership of chief Totominai, were set aside a Reserve that was 4 sq. mi. by 4 sq. mi. However, Ojibway leaders considered 1 mile to be 1 league or 3 miles. Michipicoten is 12 sq. mi. by 12 miles sq. mi. or over 144 sq. mi. or over 373 sq. km. However, Ojibway's of Missanabie 62 and Chapleau Reserves near Chapleau, Ontario, are affiliated with Michipicoten. An indication Michipicoten Reserve is much larger. Batchewana may also be affiliated with Michipicoten. Whites treated these Ojibway People with disrespect. Leaders of Batchewana First Nation need to affiliate with Michipicoten because an obvious discrepancy surrounds their histories. Look at Michipicoten map below. Place your detectives at Michipicoten including Chapleau Reserves, to spy on their leaders. They are not looking out for Indians best interests. Also preordain 19th century Ojibway Traditionalists to gather their people to migrate north and northwest, to escape what happened. Michipicoten or First Naton, has an on-Reserve population of 77 according to 2016's census. No one speaks Ojibway there.
