Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
Muskeg Lake First Nation
Located near Marcelin, Saskatchewan, is the Anishinabe Muskeg Lake First Nation. There are 14 Reserves which make up this First Nation. In their history, they obviously were forced by the Seven Fires Prophesy to flee to that location. Their band leaders signed treaty six which established their First Nation. Their Reserves cover an area of 7,535 total hectares or 18,169 total acres. Total population is 1,561, with most probably living away from the Reserve. Many can trace their origins back to Montana, where they originally lived but were driven out by the whites, after the 1868-1886 war. Ogimak Big Bear or Sitting Bull, led them up to Canada.
