Nipissing First Nation


This Ojibway community is located along north shores of Lake Nipissing. Below are links to google earth photos of their town of Garden Village or in Ojibway Kitigan Odena. They are of Algonquin Ojibway origins. North Bay, Ontario is located adjacent on their east and West Nipissing is adjacent on their west. Canada is trying to assimilate these Nipissing Ojibway's. According to 2016's census, Nipissing First Nation on-Reserve population is 1,593 which is too high or incorrect. Most of their population is probably white. They've allowed whites to build 100's of houses along their Nipissing Lake's north shore. In their Reserves extreme west is their town. It has around 200 or so housing units. I would estimate their population is near 500. They have a total of 758 housing units with 684 lived in. Average household size is 2.4 persons per household which is below normal for Ojibway communities. Around 90 speak Ojibway. According to 1850's Robinson-Huron Treaty, chief Sha-bo-ki-shick was set aside a Reserve 6 miles in depth or from north to south. Ojibway leaders considered 1 mile to be 1 league or 3 miles. It means chief Sha-bo-ki-shick's Reserve is 18 miles or 29 kilometers from north to south. It actually extends further north of Tamiko Lake, to Little Pike Lake. Their Reserve is much larger.
