Pic River First Nation


This band of Ojibway's live in northern Ontario. Below are links to google earth photos of Pic River First Nation town. This Reserve is much larger and includes other Ojibway's. They are South Pic Mobert, North Pic Mobert and Michipicoten which is this Reserves correct name. On-Reserve population of Pic River First Nation is, according to a 2016 census, 443. They have 177 dwellings with 166 lived in. Average household size is 2.7 persons per household. Ojibway Language has died out there. Pic River First Nation are signatories to 1850's Robinson-Superior Treaty. Historians claim otherwise yet they are decitful. Chief Totomencie (either it's pronounced as To-to-min-ai or To-to-mes - his name may include an Ojibway diminutive) and at least two other Ojibway chiefs who were sub-chiefs, signed 1850's Robinson-Superior Treaty. However, they excluded Pic Band Ojibway's supposedly yet that is very likely false. According to certain Robinson-Superior Treaty texts, Fort William Ojibway's wanted Lake Nipigon and Pic Band Ojibway's with them yet it was white leaders. Instead of dealing with these Ojibway People that lived along Lake Superior's north shores as one group, Ojibway leaders demanded that they remain in their native lands. That meant three large Reserves. One at Fort William, one at Lake Nipigon and one at Michipicoten. Nine Ojibway leaders signed 1850's Robinson-Superior Treaty. Each was set aside their own Reserve. Michipicoten leaders would have killed English negotiators if they were set aside a 4 square mile Reserve. Ojibway leaders considered 1 mile to be 1 league or 3 miles. Each of their Reserves were 12 miles by 12 miles or 144 square miles or 373 square kilometers. That's 432 square miles or 1,119 square kilometers. However, we know Pic River First Nation and Mobert Ojibway's were involved. Each had to send three of their chiefs. That means this Reservation is around 576 square miles or 1,491.8 square kilometers. In fact, it may be much larger because more than three Ojibway chiefs signed treaty. Exactly how many Ojibway leaders signed with Michipicoten is not known. It may have been as many as 12. Each one was set aside a 144 square mile or 373 square kilometer Reserve. White leaders lied. After Ojibway leaders discovered they were lied to, they became enraged. Many Ojibway People of this Reserve, had to find other places to live after Canada refused to honor treaty. Chapleau First Nations is one location. Missanabie is another. And there are others as well. They became non status yet they signed treaty. As mentioned, white leaders lied. Nearly 30 years after 1850's Robinson-Superior Treaty was signed, some Ojibway's from Pic River First Nation region, accepted white deceptions and petitioned Canada for a Reserve in 1879. They already had a Reserve. However, Canada refused to let them live there. They took full advantage against a defenseless people.
