Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana

Pikangikum First Nation

This Ojibway Treaty 1 Reservation community known as Pikangikum (it is pronounced as Pi-kan-ji-kum), is located in northwestern Ontario. According to a 2011 census, First Nation population of Pikangikum is 2,497. That does not include Pikangikum citizens who live in white communities. They are supposedly Treaty 5 signatories. However, they signed Treaty 1 under chief Yellow Quills leadership. Their language belongs to Ojibwe Dialect which is closely related to North Ojibwe or Severn Ojibwe (aka Oji-Cree). While Ojibwe Dialect is decreasing in number of speakers, North Ojibwe Dialect is increasing. Their community is unorganized. Pikangikum does not have an appearance of a city or town. It's located adjacent to Pikangikum Lake on it's east. Below is a google earth satellite image of Pikangikum.
