Thunderchild First Nation

These Saulteaux Ojibway's are from Jackfish Lake Saulteaux Ojibway's and a community of Big Beare Reserve. Thunderchild First Nation shares obvious similarities with Saulteaux, with main one being Moosomin and Saulteaux First Nations share a same Reserve now. Their population is 740 according to a 2016 census. They have 216 dwellings with 186 lived in. Average household size is 4.0 persons per household. Around 420 speak Corrupted Ojibway Language which is what Lewis and Clark called Cree Language. Before 1908, Thunderchild and Moosomin shared a same Reserve southwest of Jackfish Lake. White settlers reached that region and demanded their Reserve. They forced these Saulteaux Ojibway's to relocate to Jackfish Lake.
