Sarnia First Nation


This band of Ojibway Indians live in extreme southern Ontario. Sarnia has been used to identify these Ojibway People for a long time. In fact, Sarnia may be an Ojibway word. Below are google earth photos of Sarnia First Nation. Their on-Reserve population according to 2016's census, is 639. They have 274 total housing units with 255 lived in year round. Average household size is 2.5 persons per household. Ojibway Language is no longer spoken at Sarnia First Nation. Their Reserve used to be larger yet Canada could not control their greed. They are Swan Creek and Black River Chippewa's or Saginaw's. They may have originally lived in Kansas or Oklahoma. According to 1832's Edinburgh Encyclopedia, a large group of Leni Lenape (they are really Ojibway) came up from some southwestern location and reached North America's Atlantic Coastline. Another large group of Ojibway's, forced their way directly east from a western location (probably Alberta and Montana region) and reached St. Lawrence River Valley and settled there. That happened during mid 16th century. Determining which group settled in Ohio, Michigan and southern Ontario is difficult. However, they are Saginaw or Swan Creek and Black River Chippewa's. They are not Mississauga.
