Witchekan Lake First Nation

These Saulteaux Ojibway's live on Witchekan Lakes westside. They are so idiotic they think they are Cree now. We know from history, that they are Saulteaux Ojibway's. Only after their leader died in early 20th century, did they take on a false Cree identity. Cree People are too cowardly to follow prophecy. They were among chief Big Bears Saulteaux Ojibway's that evaded treaty after 1885's Northwest Rebellion. That's evidence that Canada forced Ojibway leaders to accept a new treaty. Chief Big Bear never did. In 1913, Witchekan Lake First Nation Reserve's original boundaries included land well east of Witchekan Lake. They requested for Reserve in 1909. They are a community of Big Bears Reserve. Their population is 335 according to 2016's census. They have 80 dwellings with 73 lived in. Average household size is 4.6 persons per household. Around 110 speak Corrupted Ojibway Language which is what Lewis and Clark called Cree Language. In 1876, chief Big Bear along with chief Rocky Boy and chief Sitting Bull, fled their native Montana for Alberta's and Saskatchewan's Cypress Hills. Canadian negotiators were sent to Fort Carlton to negotiate a treaty with chief Big Bear about a Reserve. That treaty is Treaty 6. Chief Big Bear was in fear of being executed for his part in 1876's War in Montana. He signed Treaty 6 in either 1876 or 1877 and agree to lead 1,000's of his Montana Ojibway's 100's of miles north to near Fort Pitt. He possibly did that in 1877. He told Canadian negotiators he had to return to his people at Cypress Hills and would bring them north to sign treaty. His Ojibway subjects found many locations to settle at. One is Witchekan Lake First Nation. He did not cede his Reservation. They have no proof he ceded Reservation. They only go so far as writing that chief Big Bear wanted a large Reserve which included many districts. Witchekan Lake First Nation is one of many locations chief Big Bear's Montana Ojibway's settled at. Canadian negotiators did not consider chief Big Bear highest ranking Saulteaux Ojibway leader. However, chief Big Bear made himself understood that he was highest ranking Ojibway leader. We have been told by prophecy to find evidence along a trail. That's what we are doing.
