South Indian Lake First Nation


Located in far northern Manitoba, is this Saulteaux Ojibway Kasba Reservation community known as South Indian Lake First Nation. According to 2016's census, population of South Indian Lake First Nation is 981. They have 236 dwellings with 200 lived in. Average household size is 4.9 persons per household. Around 335 speak Corrupted Ojibway Language, which is what Lewis and Clark called Cree Language, at South Indian Lake First Nation. They recently broke off relations with Nelson House. This community is an Ojibway community. Read Treaty 5 text. According 1832's Edinburgh Encyclopedia, Ojibway People gave rise to Cree People, Chipewyan People, Copper People and Dogrib People. Staff at HBC trade posts named Northern Ojibway People "Nakawawuck or Nekawawuck and Lake Indians." Andrew Graham wrote in 1771, that Ojibway's forced their way to York Fort (aka York Factory) in 1762 or during Pontiac's War. They were there to prevent white expansion inland. They did trade now and then according to Andrew Graham who also wrote that Northern Ojibway People commanded all lakes (thus why they were named Lake Indians) from York Fort Rivers (Nelson River and Hayes River), leaving Lowland Cree (they were really Eskimos) very little room between them and Hudson Bay. Staff at HBC trade posts named Cree People "Beaver Indians and Keskatchewan Indians." As more Ojibway Soldiers were sent north, Keskatchewan People or Beaver People who are Ojibway also, retreated west and southwest. Northern Keskatchewan People were named Beaver Indians. Below are 18th century maps that can help you. Frenchmans Lake and Little Sea are Lake Winnipeg. On their left, are latitude numbers which are from 48° to 58° north latitude. Notice how Lake Winnipeg and Lake Manitoba are situated? Almost horizontal instead or vertical. It looks like whoever drew that map, was looking northwest. Churchill looks like Northern Ojibway Territory's north boundary which was possibly Churchill River. However, Churchill is at 58° north latitude. York Fort (aka York Factory) is at 57° north latitude. During their war against whites and their Eskimo allies who were stationed at white forts around Hudson Bay and James Bay, Ojibway Soldiers captured many Eskimos and absorbed them into their population. South Indian Lake First Nation has an Eskimo mixture within their population. Closer to Hudson Bay and James Bay, more Eskimo blood is within Ojibway communities.
