Pic Mobert First Nation


This community of Ojibway Indians live 34 miles east of Lake Superior, along the southern shores of White Lake. Kichidabadik Inlet is to the north. They are woodlands Saulteaux Ojibwa's. Their land has a rocky soil, countless lakes and is a bit hilly or mountainous. Their tribal history obviously included war with the whites. Below are google earth photos of their domain. According to Edinburgh Encyclopedia (it's from 1832), the Ojibwa's migrated east in two groups. One group came up from the southwest, from probably what is now Kansas and Oklahoma. Another group sent their soldiers east from a location in the west which was probably the Alberta, Montana and Wyoming region. It is the second group that migrated east soon after the southern group commenced their east migration, that Pic Mobert Ojibwa's are from. White historians refer to these two Ojibwa groups as the Northern Arapaho and Southern Arapaho and Northern Cheyenne and Southern Cheyenne. They are better known as the Swan Creek and Black River Chippewa's. Another name they are known by is Wichita including the Kit-chi, Ta-wak-o-ni, Ta-o-va-ya and Wa-co. Below is an excerpt from Edinburgh Encyclopedia:



The general tradition of the Lenape is, that their family originally came from the westward, taking possession of the whole country from the Missouri to the sea, and destroying the original inhabitants, whom they name Allegewi. In this migration and contest, which continued for many years, they say that the Iroquois moved in a parallel line with them, but in a more northerly course and finally settled on the St. Lawrence.



Now, you may think it was the Iroquois who forced their way east from that westerly location but your wrong. White explorers visited the St. Lawrence River in the early 16th century and found non Algonquians living there. When the whites returned in the very early 17th century, they found the Algonquians living along the St. Lawrence River, in what is now Quebec and New York State. Ojibway leaders followed prophecy and soon after learning the evil people mentioned in the Seven Fires Prophecy had invaded, they sent their soldiers and their familes east to fight the white invaders. It was the Leni Lenape who first reached the east coast. Thus, they are considered by Ojibwa's as grandfathers. Soon after the Leni Lenape eastern migration, large numbers of Ojibwa's from the Alberta and Montana region reached the St. Lawrence River. That happened sometime during the mid 16th century.



The 1850 Robinson Superior Treaty was agreed upon by Ojibwa leaders who were lied to by the whites. White leaders knew the land north and east of Lake Superior was nearly all wetlands and contained an incredible number of small and large lakes. They didn't like it. As one went further north, the more unappealing the land is. White leaders sent their negotiators to Ojibwa leaders and reached a treaty agreement in which they left the entire land area of the 1850 Robinson Superior Treaty, to the Ojibwa Nation. Per treaty agreements, Ojibwa leaders agreed to allow the whites to build roads including railroads, establish trading posts, and to lumber and mineral rights. Besides Long Lake No. 58, this is the only other Ojibway Robinson Superior Reservation community located well inland away from Lake Nipigon and Lake Superior. In 1990, citizens of Long Lake blocked CNR or Canadian National Railway, from going through their land. They told the whites they never ceded their land. Other Ojibwa Robinson Superior Treaty Reservation communities supported Long Lake. They included Pays Plat, Pic Mobert, and Pic River. Long Lake is located further north of Ginoogaming which is an Ojibwa Treaty 9 Reservation community. Ginoogaming is a couple of miles south of Long Lake 58. The Ojibwa Robinson Superior Reservation community of Pic Mobert or First Naton, has a population of 339 according to a 2015 census. They have two communities which each have an appearance of organized settlements. Combined, both Pic Mobert villages have around 100 housing units. Average household size is around 3.4 persons per household. Nearly 25% of the population can speak Ojibway yet they don't speak it regularly. In 2014, leaders of Pic Mobert supposedly signed an agreement with the Province of Ontario in which 16 ki. mi. of land will be added to their First Nation. However, their ancestors did not cede their land. They refuse to follow the Robinson Superior Treaty which was signed on September 7, 1850, at Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario.
