Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
Webequie First Nation>
This Chippewa Treaty 9 Reservation settlement is located in extreme northern Ontario. It is about 135 miles south of Hudson Bay and Winisk. Webequie is an isolated community which depends on planes and a winter road for food and other supplies to be brought in. They are related to the Ojibwa's from further south, including the Brunswick and Chapleau Ojibwa's and the Eabametoong, Neskantaga, and Nibinamik. According to the 2011 census, the population of Webequie is 740. That does not include the Webequie citizens who live in white communities. We have convincing evidence from this community, that their children have been brainwashed by the whites. In the mid 20th century, their children were forced to attend white boarding schools far from their community. When they returned to Webequie, they identified themselves as Oji-Cree. Their parents protested that it was done without their consent and that they are Ojibwa and speak Ojibwa.
