Pelican Lake First Nation


These Saulteaux Ojibway's are related to Big River Reserve. They are within Big Bears Reserve. Below are links to google earth photos of Green Lake Village and a map of their Reserve. Canada has an obligation to fulfill. Historically they are known as Jackfish Lake Saulteaux Ojibway's. However, they are Battle River and North Saskatchewan River Saulteaux Ojibway's. Canada named their district The Saulteaux Tribe of the Battlefords District because their agency was located at Battleford. They were with those Ojibway Soldiers led by chief Big Bear, that fought 1885's Northwest Rebellion. Their on-Reserve population is 891 according to 2016's census. They have three locations where they live. Two have small villages we will name Pelican Lake Village and South Pelican Lake. Though there is no lake named Pelican Lake in that vicinity, we can't exclude their name. Most populated is Chitek Lake with a population of 821. Next is Pelican Lake (Sha-sha-gi Ga-mi) 191B with a population of 50. Then Pelican Lake 191A with a population of 20. They have 325 dwellings with 178 lived in. Average household size is 5.0 persons per household. Their Reserves are difficult to ascertain because this map and this map, don't match. Pelican Lake is within that portion of chief Big Bears Reserve we name Jackfish Lake Saulteaux Reserve. Around 280 speak Corrupted Ojibway Language which is what Lewis and Clark called Cree Language. They are not Cree. In 1876, chief Big Bear along with chief Rocky Boy and chief Sitting Bull, fled their native Montana for the Sweet Grass Hills of Montana (north of the Canada boundary) and Alberta's and Saskatchewan's Cypress Hills. Canadian negotiators were sent to Fort Carlton to negotiate a treaty with chief Big Bear about a Reserve. That treaty is Treaty 6.



Chief Big Bear was in fear of being executed for his part in 1876's War in Montana. He signed Treaty 6 in either 1876 or 1877 and agree to lead 1,000's of his Montana Ojibway Subjects 100's of miles north to near Fort Pitt. He possibly did that in 1877. His Ojibway Subjects found many locations to settle at. One is Pelican Lake First Nation which is within Big Bears Reserve. He did not cede his Reservation. They have no proof he ceded Reservation. They only go so far as writing that chief Big Bear wanted a large Reserve which included many districts. Pelican Lake First Nation is an Ojibway community. Do your investigating. Their leaders agreed to sign an adhesion to Treaty 6 in 1889. Though they are known as Pelican Lake Saulteaux Ojibway's, it's not known which Pelican Lake they lived around. There are two Pelican Lakes in Saskatchewan. One is located 18 miles or 29 kilometers northwest of Moose Jaw, while another is located 39 miles or 62.8 kilometers northwest of Flin Flon, Saskatchewan. There is evidence these Ojibway's migrated to Chitek Lake from an eastern location. However, there is also evidence of an Ojibway migration from Montana to Saskatchewan. We have been told by prophecy to find evidence along a trail. That's what we are doing.



They will not accept being Ojibway at Pelican Lake First Nation because they are brainwashed. After 1885's Northwest Rebellion, many Saulteaux Ojibway's took to living life as they always had and remained non treaty. By 1910, whites were invading their land and Saulteaux Ojibway leaders requested for Reserves. In 1909, Canada was up to no good and demanded of Saulteaux Ojibway leaders at Moosoomin/Thunderchild Reserve, that they surrender their Reserve. This is why we know chief Rocky Boy is involved. Another major forced relocation of chief Rocky Boy's Montana Ojibway Subjects happened in 1909. Saulteaux Ojibway's living at Jackfish Lake became concerned. Canada reached an agreement to relocate Saulteaux Ojibway's that lived at Moosoomin/Thunderchild Reserve, to Jackfish Lakes region. In response to an influx of Ojibway People to land around Jackfish Lake, Canada then set aside land adjacent to Witchekan Lake, for Saulteaux Ojibway's from Jackfish Lake and sent many to Pelican Lake Reserve. In October of 1912, chief of Witchekan Lake Saulteaux Ojibway's Kawkaykeesick, sent letter to James McKay for support in getting a Reserve for his subjects. He told McKay that non treaty Saulteaux Ojibway's had lived in that region for about 40 years. This aligns with an Ojibway Exodus from Montana to Canada, in 1876. Supposedly chief Kawkaykeesick was one of four sons of an Ojibway leader named Osawapisk. It is thought that chief Osawapisk traveled by horse from an east location, to Witchekan Lake. Pelican Lake Reserve is located adjacent to Chitek Lake's south shores. How did they get the name Pelican Lake? They don't know who they are! They are from chief Big Bear's Saulteaux Ojibway's.
