Wikwemikong First Nation & History
This band of Chippewa Indians live on Manitoulin Island within Lake Huron. Their tribal history includes many wars fought against the invading whites, and many of their ancestors fleeing to far northern Ontario to escape from the white threat. They signed the 1836 Manitoulin Island Treaty which set aside the entire islands of Cockburn and Manitoulin, to be Ojibwa Reserves. Besides the Mississauga Ojibwa's, the Ottawa and Potawatomi Chippewa's also live at Wikwemikong. Both are really Chippewa's who absorbed many non Ojibwa's. Canada did not have the courage to honor treaty and broke treaty in 1862. It's known as the 1862 McDougall Treaty of 1862. It's fraudulent. According to a 2015 census, the population of the Chippewa Manitoulin Island Reservation community of Wikwemikong is 3,118. Including off Reserve, it is 7,912.
