Onion Lake First Nation
Located a few miles north of Lloydminster, Saskatchewan and partially in Alberta, is the Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation community of Onion Lake. The population was 3,284 according to the 2011 census. That does not include the Onion Lake citizens who live in white communities. Historically, this band of Anishinabek participated in the 1885 Northwest Rebellion. Their ogima (chief) at the time of the 1885 war, was ogima See-ka-skootch. He was killed during the war possibly by the whites or by the Anishinabek. Ogima See-ka-skootch was evidently attempting to make a peace at the time of his murder. In 1876, the whites appointed one Ma-ka-oo to be this band's chief and he evidently signed treaty six on September 9, 1876. They were set aside Reserves in 1879 according to historical records but a discrepancy in the Reserves history indicates some sort of diversion is in place. After the 1885 Northwest Rebellion, Canada considered them to be rebels. Canada supposedly did not recognize any leader from the Reserves (actually the First Nation) until 1914. In 1914, Canada told them to amalgamate. Many Montana Chippewa's were relocated to the Onion Lake community.
