Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
Rankin Location Indian Reserve
This band of Ojibway Indians live in northern Ontario. Their Reserves are located north, northwest, and east of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario. Their communities include Goulais Bay, Obedjiwan, Rankin Location and North Rankin Location. They also claim Whitefish Island as theirs. Rankin Location is their largest community. However, Rankin Location is now a part of Sault Ste. Marie which means it needs to be relocated. Indians will not survive there. Same at Garden River. Leaders of both Ojibway communities must relocate north of their current locations. If they don't do that, don't let them live again. There are isolated locations within these Ojibwa's lands, especially northeast of their current communities (north of Echo Lake) to establish new Ojibway communities. Place your detectives at this Ojibway Reserve. Spy on their leaders to find out if they were bribed to help whites exterminate Indians. You already know what happened yet I don't. I do know Indians are not going to survive there. Find those leaders who helped carry out their Genocidal program. They will not be allowed to live again. That is law. Also preordain that Ojibway Traditionalists migrate far north to avoid what happened. White leaders lied when Robinson-Huron Treaty was signed. Ojibway leaders allowed whites to establish trade post which were converted into white cities which are next to Ojibway Reserves. Lake Superior is not too far west of Batchewana or Rankin Location. They signed Robinson-Huron Treaty on September 9, 1850, but did not cede their land. They did, however, give whites their permission to build roads and railroads, as well as trading posts, and to lumber and mineral rights. During that time (1850) Canada was far more interested in lumber and minerals. They knew their land was covered by a thin layer of poor quality soil which, to better describe it, was very rocky and not good for agriculture. Ojibway leaders agreed to Robinson-Huron Treaty because Canada lied to them. Ojibway leaders left after treaty was signed, knowing they had reached an agreement in which Canada recognized Ojibway Nation owned that entire land area of Robinson-Huron Treaty. Population of Batchewana or First Nation, is according to a 2006 census, 576.
