Thames First Nation


This band of Ojibway Indians live in extreme southern Ontario. Below are google earth photos of their communities. In Ojibway, they name their nation Desh-ga-ni Sip-pi. Remember, they share their Reserve with Munsee-Delaware Ojibway's and Seneca (Oneida) Ojibways. Their on-Reserve population according to a 2018 estimate, is 990. 2011's census reported Thames First Nation on-Reserve population to be 762. Munsee-Delaware population is 153 according to 2016's census. It was 160 in 2011. Oneida of the Thames on-Reserve population is 1,282 according to 2011's census. They (Oneida) originally came from River Credit Reserve. They claim otherwise however. They relocated to COTT between 1840-1846. Munsee People also relocated to COTT around 1840. COTT Reserve was set aside in 1822 when Longwoods Treaty was signed. Total on-Reserve population for COTT in 2011, was 2,204. Around 1881 or 1882, friction between COTT and Munsee-Delawares, led to COTT leaders telling Munsee-Delawares to leave their Reserve. It may have been about religion or old traditions.
