Thessalon First Nation


This band of Ojibway's live in northern Ontario. Below are google earth photos of this Ojibway Town. On-Reserve population of Thessalon First Nation is, according to a 2016 census, 124. They have 63 dwellings with 58 lived in. Average household size is 2.1 persons per household. Ojibway Language has died out there. Thessalon are signatories to 1850's Robinson-Huron Treaty. Chief Ke-o-cos signed for Thessalon. These Ojibway's were set aside a tract of land extending four miles front from Thessalon River eastward, by four miles inland. Thessalon First Nation or Reserve, is really connected to Batchewana, Michipicoten (Gros Cap), Mississaga and Thesasalon.



We have to extend this Reserve to Michipicoten Reserve or Gros Cap Reserve, which is located almost adjacent to Wawa, Ontario. Not just because of Gros Cap yet of an important location to Batchewana Ojibway's, which is Gargantua Harbour, where an Ojibway town named Win-di-go, was located. Even in 2007, Ojibway leaders were yet claiming Windigo as theirs.



Mica Bay Rebellion of 1849


This incident led to 1850's Robinson-Huron and Robinson-Superior Treaties. In 1849, white mining companies established mines at Mica Bay which was quickly learned of by Ojibway leaders. They sent many Ojibway Soldiers to those mines to destroy them. In response, England sent over 100 soldiers to put this rebellion down. It led to 1850's Robinson-Huron and Robinson-Superior Treaties. Ojibway Soldiers were led by chief Shing-wa-cos (Garden River) and chief Ne-be-nai-goch of Batchewana. White Soldiers had repeating rifles and revolvers yet Ojibway Soldiers stood their ground. Michipicoten (Gros Cap), Mississaga and Thessalon were also involved. A Treaty agreement was reached in 1850, to set aside a large Ojibway Reservation along Lake Superiors eastern shores and Lake Huron's northern shores. Whites deliberately wrote that their Reserve was so many miles this way and that way. However, Ojibway leaders considered 1 mile to be 1 league or 3 miles. This Ojibway Reserve is very large and yet exists. We don't recognize 1859's Pennyfather Treaty. It's fraudulent.
