Pikogan First Nation of Quebec


Located almost adjacent to Amos, Quebec is an Ojibway First Nation known as Pikogan First Nation. Below are links to google earth photos of this Ojibway town. Their Reserves only community is located 1.2 kilometers or 0.75 miles north of Amos, Quebec. Canada is trying to assimilate these Ojibway's of Pikogan. This Ojibway Reserve is very small. It covers only 1.0 sq. km. or 0.4 sq. mi. On-Reserve population of Pikogan First Nation is 538 according to a 2016 census. They have 160 dwellings with 159 lived in. Average household size is 3.3 persons per household. Around 175 speak Algonquin Dialect of Ojibway Language at Pikogan First Nation. On June 7, 1906 their leaders signed Treaty 9 at Lake Abitibi, in Quebec. Apparently some kind of predicament followed because Treaty 9 was intended only for Ojibway People in Ontario yet much of Pikogan Territory was in Quebec. These Ojibway Peoples district extended to James Bay centuries ago. They used Abitibi River (A-bi-ta Sip-pi in Ojibway) at Lake Abitibi, to reach James Bay. Their district extended east to central Quebec, where O-bed-jiw-an is located. To their west, their district extended well past Timmins, Ontario. Lake Nipissing was possibly their districts southern boundary. However, Lake Abitibi was their main location.
