Big Bear Reserve


A map of chief Big Bears Reserve is below and also links to google earth photos of Makwa Lake. In 1876, chief Big Bear fled Montana with Chief Rocky Boy and chief Sitting Bull and settled around the Sweet Grass Hills of Montana and Cypress Hills of Alberta and Saskatchewan. Canada was quick to offer a treaty which chief Big Bear was late to attend. However, he did reach treaty negotiations before they concluded at Fort Carlton, Saskatchewan. He told Canadian negotiators he would sign treaty yet needed to discuss the situation with other Ojibway leaders. They were concerned about possible executions. Chief Big Bear made that clear to whites yet they ignored him. In 1877, chief Big Bear signed treaty and agreed to locate his Ojibway Subjects much further north. Canada refused to set aside Reserves in southeast Alberta and southwest Saskatchewan because of the abundant agriculture land. Chief Big Bear and chief Rocky Boy commenced to leading 1,000's of their Montana Ojibway Subjects 100's of miles or 100's of kilometers north to near Fort Pitt, Saskatchewan. After reaching that location, they commenced to settle at many locations. Chief Big Bears Reserve was quite large. It extended from Saddle Lake in Alberta, to Sturgeon Lake in Saskatchewan. His Reserves southern boundary was Saskatchewan River. Canada refused to honor treaty and it led to 1885's Northwest Rebellion which illegally eradicated chief Big Bears Reserve. What remains of Big Bears Reserve (it's west portion) are Elizabeth Metis Settlement, Fishing Lake Metis Settlement, Frog Lake Reserve, Ministikwan Reserve, Onion Lake Reserve and Thunderchild Reserve. Canada must add Cold Lake Reserve and Makwa Sahgaiehcan Reserve to Big Bears Reserve! Last battle of 1885's Northwest Rebellion was fought where Makwa Sahgaiehcan is!

Jackfish Lake Saulteaux Ojibway's of Battlefords District

They are known for not taking treaty. To put it bluntly, they continued to honor treaty. They are those Saulteaux Ojibways led by chief Big Bear who dispersed after 1885's Northwest Rebellion. Fort Battleford or Battleford as it's known today, was a boundary in the 1880's. Saskatchewan River is the actual boundary. Battleford is located south of Saskatchewan River, while North Battleford is located north of Saskatchewan River. Both communities are adjacent to Saskatchewan River yet distinct. Historically, the Saulteaux Ojibway's of the Battlefords District are known as the Jackfish Lake Saulteaux Ojibway's, Pelican Lake Saulteaux Ojibway's (aka Chitek Lake Saulteaux Ojibway's), and Witchekan Lake Saulteaux Ojibway's. They also include the Sunchild Saulteaux Ojibway's who also live in Alberta adjacent to the O'Chiese Saulteaux Ojibway's. They yet live in Saskatchewan. They were set aside land adjacent to Witchekan Lake in 1915 which means they are more closely related to the Witchekan Lake Saulteaux Ojibway's. South of Saskatchewan River, are smaller Reserves that were not affiliated with chief Big Bears original Reserve.



Sunchild (Jackfish Lake) District

Their district commences at Jackfish Lake and extends north to Thunderchild then to Flying Dust then to Waterhen Lake then to Big Island. It includes to it's west, Cold Lake, Kehewin, Frog Lake, Makwa Sahgaiehcan, Ministikwan, Onion Lake, Saddle Lake and two Metis Reserves. They are Elizabeth and Fishing Lake. On their east is the Witchekan Lake Saulteaux Ojibway District. Most of the Sunchild Saulteaux Ojibway District is covered by a forest and lakes. Sunchild was another of chief Rocky Boy's names.



Witchekan Lake District

Their district commences at Sylvander Lake which is where Sunchild was added to Witchekan Lake in 1915. It extends north to include Pelican Lake (aka Chitek Lake) then to Green Lake and further north. To it's east are Ahtahkakoop, Big River, Mistawasis, Muskeg Lake and Sturgeon Lake. Since there is a connection between Pelican Lake and Big River, we have to include Ahtahkakoop, Big River, Mistawasis, Muskeg Lake and Sturgeon Lake. Most of their land is covered by a forest and lakes.
