Walpole Island First Nation


This Reserve is supposedly unceded territory. I don't know what they mean by that. Below are google earth photos of two of their towns. Their 2016 on-Reserve population is 1,589. Their population is declining. They have 782 dwellings with 610 lived in. Average household size is 2.6 persons per household. Their nation covers an area of land and water of 137.5 sq. km. or 53.1 sq. mi. They are located on Lake St. Clair's East. Few people speak Ojibway at Walpole Island. They have at least six towns. Folks at Walpole Island name their Nation Bkejwanong which means "Where Waters Divide." These Ojibway People of southern Ontario are Swan Creek and Black River Chippewa's. They are not Mississauga Ojibway's. They originally lived in either western Montana or between Kansas and Texas. They did not sign 1790's Treaty 2 because there was no 1790 Treaty 2. There was a war going on at that time. Ojibway People were fighting whites and it's ridiculous to even suspect that Ojibway leaders would cede such a large area of land in extreme southern Ontario. Those treaties for land in southern Ontario, before 1812, are bogus or didn't happen. Why? War of 1812. They were signed after War of 1812. Detroit is on Lake St. Clair's west. It's about 20 miles or 32.2 kilometers from this Ojibway Nation.
