Montreal Lake First Nation
This Saulteaux Ojibway community known as Montreal Lake First Nation, is located within Misipawistik Reserve. Their on-Reserve population is 1,555 according to a 2016 census. They have 395 dwellings with 380 lived in. Average household size is 4.1 persons per household. Around 260 speak Corrupted Ojibway Language which is what Lewis and Clark called Cree Language. They know they came from Grand Rapids, Manitoba. Read an excerpt from Treaty 5 below very carefully. They are Saulteaux Ojibway People. They are closely related to Ojibway folks at Lac La Ronge and Peter Ballantyne. In fact, both Montreal Lake and Lac la Ronge, signed an adhesion to Treaty 6 on February 11, 1889. Later, Peter Ballantyne broke from Lac la Ronge. However, history indicates they originated where Grand Rapids, Manitoba is. They possibly signed an adhesion to Treaty 5 on February 11, 1889. They did not sign an adhesion to Treaty 6 on February 11, 1889. Unless they came from Montana! They have two settlements. Their largest is located along Montreal Lakes southern shores, while their smaller one is located further south about 5 miles or 8 kilometers southwest of Emma Lake, Saskatchewan.
We, the Band of the Saulteaux Tribe of Indians residing at the mouth of the Saskatchewan River, on both sides thereof, having had communication of the foregoing treaty, hereby, and in consideration of the provisions of the said treaty being extended to us, transfer, surrender and relinquish to Her Majesty the Queen, Her heirs and successors, to and for the use of the Government of Canada, all our right, title and privileges whatsoever, which we have or enjoy in the territory described in the said treaty, and every part thereof, to have and to hold to the use of Her Majesty the Queen and Her heirs and successors for ever. And Her Majesty agrees, through the said Commissioners, to assign a reserve of sufficient area to allow one hundred and sixty acres to each family of five, or in that proportion for larger or smaller families-such reserve to be laid off and surveyed next year on the south side of the River Saskatchewan.
Donate to our cause! Money donated will be used to create a government for "Our Selected Land" and other private ventures including agriculture, ect. We are the "Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana." We have to follow chief Rocky Boy, if we are to follow prophesy!
