Located in southeastern Saskatchewan, is an Assiniboine (they are Ojibway - As-sin-i means Stoney & Bwan means O-jib-bwa) and Ojibway Ocean Man First Nation. Below are google earth photos of their town. An Ojibway ogima (chief) who signed treaty which set aside Moose Mountain Plateau to be an Ojibway Reserve, was probably ogima White Bear (Wa-bi Mak-wa). Another Ojibway leader who was instrumental in having Moose Mountain Plateau set aside as an Ojibway Reserve, was ogima Ocean Man (kii-chay ga-may-win or Kii-chay ga-may-win Na-bay). Adhesions to treaty four on September 9, 1875, established this Ocean Man First Nation. There are 11 Reserves which make up this First Nation. They cover an area of 4,164 total hectares or 10,289 total acres. Total on-Reserve population is 185 according to 2016's census. They have 61 dwellings with 56 lived in. Average household size is 3.4 persons per household. Ojibway Language is no longer spoken there. In 1901, Ojibway's from both Ocean Man and Pheasant Rump, were forced to amalgamate (relocate to White Bear Reserve) with White Bear First Nation. For 90 years they lived at White Bear until they gained Reserve status again in 1992. Their Reserve is actually all of Moose Mountain Plateau, which covers 1,165 sq. km. or 450 sq. mi.
