Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
Sandy Lake First Nation
This Ojibway Treaty 1 Reservation settlement is located in northwestern Ontario. It is 43.5 miles from Manitoba. Their leaders signed Treaty 5 but they are Treaty 9. Their leaders were bribed during Treaty 9 negotiations. Land north of 57° north latitude in Manitoba was involved. Center of that treaty conspiracy is Reindeer Lake, which is located in Manitoba and Saskatchewan. They are really signatories to Treaty 1 under chief Yellow Quills leadership. Sandy Lake is one of two Ojibway settlements located around large Sandy Lake. Another is Keewaywin. According to a 2016 census, First Nation population of Sandy Lake is 2,017. That does not include those Sandy Lake citizens who live in white communities. Their language is North Ojibwe or Severn Ojibwe (aka Oji-Cree).
