Pays Plat First Nation


This Ojibway community is located adjacent to Lake Superiors north shores. Below are links to google earth photos of Pays Plat First Nation. They are historically affiliated with Lake Nipigon Ojibway's. They are signatories to 1850's Robinson-Superior Treaty. Their leader was Mi-shi Muck-qua or Supreme Bear. He signed 1850's Robinson-Superior Treaty which set aside three large Ojibway Reserves. These Ojibway People of Pays Plat are from Gull Lake Reserve. They could also have been from Pic Mobert yet they are closer to Lake Nipigon. Those other two Reserves are Fort William and Cros Cap or Michipicoten or Pic Mobert. White leaders refused to honor treaty which forced many Ojibway People to leave Gull Bay Reserve. Many eventually settled where they live now at Pays Plat First Nation. Their website is quite goofy. It depicts Ojibway's 7 teachings. They are not following bravery unfortunately. They need to follow Seven Fires Prophecy yet are too scared. Their community has steadily declined in population and will continue to decline in population because they will not follow Seven Fires Prophecy. According to 2016's census, Pays Plat First Nation has an on-Reserve population of 89. They have 35 total housing units or dwellings with 34 lived in. Average household size is 2.6 persons per household. Around 20 speak Ojibway. They must be relocated to Gull Bay Reserve. They will not survive as a race where they live at now. Canada is trying to assimilate them.
