Pic River First Nation


These Ojibway Indians live along Lake Superiors northeastern shores. Below are several google earth photos of Pic River. Marathon, Ontario is a few miles to the northwest. Their leaders supposedly didn't sign Robinson-Huron Treaty in 1850. What their leaders did do was ignore that treaty. Thus, they became non treaty. In 1879, some of their leaders were persuaded to petition for a few acres of land. That is how Pic River First Nation was established. Place your detectives at this Ojibway community to spy on thir leaders. Also preordain 19th century Ojibway Traditionalists to migrate north to avoid what happened. I don't trust their leaders. According to 2011 census, Pic River has a population of 395. It does not include off-Reserve population. They have a total of 166 housing units or dwellings, with 149 lived in. Ojibway is not spoken widely at Pic River. Their tribal history obviously included war with the whites. 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 River 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.
