Battle River Ojibway Reserve


Location of this Ojibway Reserve is just west of Battleford and North Battleford, Saskatchewan. Below are maps of Battle River Reserve and links to google earth photos of their land. Though it's thought that chief Lucky Man's Reserve was adjacent to Little Pine Reserve, if you look at the map from Bing Maps, you'll notice an area between Poundmaker Reserve and Sweet Grass Reserve. Lucky Man Reserve must be there! Battle River Reserve is a series of Reserves located along Battle River. Supposedly they include Big Bears Reserve (caution must be used because evidence indicates chief Big Bears Reserve is located north of Fort Pitt, Saskatchewan), Little Pine Reserve and Poundmaker Reserve. Lucky Man Reserve was situated adjacent to Little Pine Reserve yet Canada only goes as far as placing chief Lucky Man's Reserve as amalgamated with Little Pine Reserve. Chief Lucky Man is a mysterious Ojibway historical figure. He may have been chief Big Bear! His Ojibway name was "Pa-pa-way." There's an excerpt from a March 11, 1902 Butte Inter Mountain newspaper below. Apparently chief Rocky Boy was having serious problems with chief Papawee or chief Lucky Man who may have been chief Big Bear, near Butte, Montana. At issue was new Ojibway Reservations. If chief Lucky Man was chief Big Bear, it means he fled south back to his native Montana with chief Rocky Boy. He would have been in his late 70's in 1902. He strongly opposed ceding his vast Montana Reservation. Chief Papaway Relocated his Ojibway Subjects to Battle River in 1883 and settled adjacent to Little Pine Reserve or between Poundmaker Reserve and Sweet Grass Reserve. He signed Treaty 6 as a headman of chief Big Bear's Ojibway Band, with chief Little Pine at Fort Walsh, Saskatchewan in 1879. So there are 4 Reserves adjacent to each other. Chief Lucky Man was apparently some sort of troublemaker. Canada refused to negotiate with him.



Battle River Ojibway's or Battle River People (Mig Sip-pi'ii in Ojibway), lived from it's entry at North Saskatchewan River, to it's source at Battle Lake, Alberta. Land area of Battle River Reserve can't be correctly determined. That's because of chief Lucky Man's Reserve. Little Pine Reserve has a land area of 67.8 sq. mi. or 175.7 sq. km. Poundmaker Reserve has a land area of 50.9 sq. mi. or 131.8 sq. km. Sweet Grass Reserve has a land area of 78.6 sq. mi. or 203.5 sq. km. Lucky Man Reserve was probably largest. Possibly as large or larger than Sweet Grass Reserve. I would estimate at least 100.0 sq. mi. or 259.0 sq. km. Total land area of Battle River Reserve is possibly 292.0 sq. mi. or 756.3 sq. km. Total on-Reserve population according to 2016's census is 1,890. I suspect Canada is not being honest about Battle River Reserve in Saskatchewan. There may have been 3 or possibly 4 large Ojibway Reserves located along Battle River. One is in Saskatchewan. The other two in Alberta. One being where Ermineskin, Louis Bull, Montana and Samson Reserve is. The other is located adjacent to Wainwright, Alberta we will name Buffalo Lake Ojibway Reserve. Or we can claim that land 5 miles to Battle Rivers north and 5 miles to Battle Rivers south, from it's entry or mouth, to it's source, was set aside to be an Ojibway Reserve. More investigations pertaining to Battle River Ojibway's must be conducted. Prophesy tells Ojibway People whites will fool them! Also investigate Treaty 6 which was quickly brought forth after 10,000's of Montana Ojibway's fled to Canada in 1876 and 1877, as refugees. Chief Big Bear was probably very much alive in the early 20th century in Montana.
