Blackfeet Reservation


On October 17, 1855 Judith River Treaty established a so called first Blackfeet Reservation. However, September 17, 1851's Fort Laramie Treaty established this first Blackfeet Reservation. You have to read September 17, 1851's Treaty very carefully. No nation can negotiate a treaty with another nation or nations, that tells that nation or nations, what their boundaries are, how they govern themselves and that American's can build military forts, roads and trade posts within their nations. Since that information (American's defining their districts or territories, demanding to be allowed to build military forts, roads and trade posts within their nations) is within September 17, 1851's Fort Laramie Treaty, it means September 17, 1851's Fort Laramie Treaty was not about defining what their boundaries were. It was about land cessions and establishing Reservations. Several land cessions happened. A treaty was negotiated in 1868 yet failed. In 1873, chief Little Bear ceded that portion of Blackfeet Reservation from where Marias River enters Missouri River, east to North Dakota and north to Canada. Fort Assiniboine Indian Reservation was set aside for chief Little Bear and he allowed American's to build Fort Assiniboine within his Reservation. Blackfeet Reservations west remained. A treaty was either negotiated in 1873 or 1875 about ceding what remained of Blackfeet Reservation yet Ojibway leaders refused to cede their Reservation. A dispute about our Reservation led to 1876-1877's War. Chief Big Bear, chief Rocky Boy and chief Sitting Bull along with other high ranking Ojibway leaders, led 10,000's of their Ojibway Subjects to the Sweet Grass Hills or to a location just across the Canada border near them, after American Soldiers with their Ojibway allies led by chief Little Bear, attacked them in May and June of 1876. Many then went to the Cypress Hills. There is no evidence our Reservation was ever ceded! A map of our original Blackfeet Reservation is below. Below that is another map that may be the infamous 10¢ an acrea Treaty. It's important to investigate. One way is by investigating 19th century photos of Black Eagle Falls and Giant Springs. Look carefully at Black Eagle Falls photo. You may make out buildings and a staircase. Ojibway leaders were shrewd. They used Tree Trail Markers to define their Reservations boundaries. Giant Springs is within our Reservation and the canal south of it is also. Peigan Reservation may have been set aside after a treaty was signed in 1873 or 1875. American leaders quickly broke treaty which led to 1876-1877's War. This land dispute must be resolved legally.



Chief Rocky Boy retuned to his native Montana in June of 1885 or during 1885's Northwest Rebellion in Canada. Many Ojibway's that fled to Canada in 1876-1877 returned to their native Montana with chief Rocky Boy. They were not wanted by white invaders and were considered by white invaders non natives of the United States. They proudly returned to their Reservation which enraged American leaders. Chief Rocky Boy refused to cede Reservation which led American leaders to hire Ojibway leaders that did not have authority to cede Reservation land, to sign May 1, 1888's Sweet Grass Hills Treaty. It's a fraudulent treaty that set aside what is now known as Blackfeet Reservation and also Fort Belknap Reservation and Fort Peck Reservation. Chief Rocky Boy continued to honor treaty that created Blackfeet Reservation (either in 1873 or 1875) and along with his Ojibway Subjects, they lived throughout their Reservation. In May, June and July of 1896, American Soldiers led by Colonel Pershing with their Ojibway allies led by chief Little Bear, rounded up 1,000's of Ojibway's living throughout their Reservation and loaded them onto train box cars at Great Falls and Deported them.



Chief Rocky Boy and many of his Ojibway Subjects, simply returned to their native Montana Reservation. They became the most troublesome Indians in the United States and Canada. They remained that way well into the 20th century. In 1909, chief Rocky Boy and 100's if not 1,000's of his Ojibway Subjects living in Montana, were again rounded up and boarded onto train box cars and Deported. Chief Rocky Boy was set aside an Ojibway Reservation within Blackfeet Reservation set aside in 1888, in November 1909. Chief Little Bear with many of his Ojibway Soldiers, were sent to Blackfeet Reservation to prevent chief Rocky Boy's Ojibway Subjects from fleeing Reservation. The location of his Reservation is not correctly known. One source indicates headwaters of Marias River or Lower Two Medicine Lake, while another source indicates it's location being at the forks of St. Mary's River and Milk River. Supposedly it's 20 miles north of Browning. Milk River enters Montana 2.75 miles or 4.4 kilometers southeast of Whiskey Gap, Alberta. It then flows southwest towards Babb, Montana which is located within Blackfeet Reservation. There's a tributary of Milk River at 48°59'55.93"N 112°33'20.13"W that American's think is Milk River yet isn't. Forks of Milk River and St. Mary's River is located at 48°56'45.26"N 113°21'50.16"W which is located 6.75 miles or 10.9 kilometers northeast of Babb. American's have diverted much of that region for a reason. So chief Rocky Boy's Reservation within Blackfeet Reservation, is located between forks of St. Mary's River and Milk River to Lower Two Medicine Lake. It actually may extend to the Badger-Two Medicine Wilderness Area. In 1910, chief Rocky Boy learned his Reservation had been violated. American leaders established Glacier National Park in 1910. It obviously means that portion of Blackfeet Reservations 1896 ceded strip (a 99 year land lease according to Blackfeet Historians - caution must be used because they know about chief Rocky Boy), was handed over to chief Rocky Boy. Remember that American leaders rounded up 1,000's of Ojibway's at Great Falls and Deported them in 1896. One location was Blackfeet Reservations 1896 ceded strip.



He didn't take kindly to his Reservation being violated. He fled Reservation and probably went to Mexico to fight in Mexico's Civil War. Chief Little Bear and his Ojibway Soldiers, could not stop the exodus. Mexican leaders illegally eradicated large Indian and black Reservations in north Mexico which led to 1910-1920's Mexican Civil War. Mexican leaders forced 100,000's of Indians and blacks to south Mexico or they fled to south Mexico. In 1913, chief Rocky Boy sent letter to President Wilson telling him he would stay neutral in the European Conflict which is ridiculous. He meant Mexico's Civil War. American's were negotiating with chief Rocky Boy about setting aside a Reservation for chief Rocky Boy adjacent to Great Falls in 1913. American's claim where Rocky Boy's Reservation (it's really chief Little Bears Fort Assiniboine Indian Reservation) is. In 1914, it was reported that chief Rocky Boy was headquartered at Great Falls with 700 of his Ojibway Subjects. Chief Rocky Boy's Reservation within Blackfeet Reservation is yet genuine. He was also set aside a compact form Reservation within Flathead Reservation in 1904, with a land area of over 300,000 acres, with Senator Gibsons help. Fort Belknap Reservations southern half was also set aside for chief Rocky Boy in 1913 or 1914. It was really 1896. Fort Belknap Reservations 1896's ceded portion, was for many Ojibway's Deported at Great Falls in 1896. So per agreements, American leaders set aside a Reservation for chief Rocky Boy in 1913 adjacent to Great Falls and set aside Fort Belknap Reservations southern half for chief Rocky Boy, in either 1913 or 1914. He stayed out of Mexico's Civil War.



In 1903, Blackfeet Reservation was fenced to prevent Ojibway's from fleeing off Reservation. It was removed in 1909. Blackfeet Reservation has a land area of 1,462,640 acres or 2,285.4 sq. mi. or 5,919.1 sq. km. In 1907 and 1908, first allotments were handed out to 2,656 citizens of Blackfeet Reservation. Around 903,040 acres were allotted. Blackfeet Reservations Government owns 311,324 acres or 486.4 sq. mi. or 1,259.9 sq. km. Supposedly what was left after allotments, became surplus land which led to Blackfeet Reservation being opened to white settlement. If that's true, it means Blackfeet Reservations Government does not have control over all of their Reservation. It has control of 961,882 acres or 1,503 sq. mi. or 3,892.6 sq. km. If it has been opened to white settlement, it means it's not a Reservation. Handing out land allotments to Reservation citizens which could be sold to non Reservation citizens, does not mean this Reservation was opened to white settlement. If a large area of Reservation land was declared surplus land then sold to whites, it means this Reservation is not a real Reservation. That's why it's important for leaders and citizens of Blackfeet Reservation, to follow chief Rocky Boy. Those land allotments sold to non Indians, are yet under Blackfeet Reservation jurisdiction because they were not included as surplus land. Blackfeet Reservations Government can actually declare those land allotments Trust Land since they have jurisdiction over them. It means that land is not taxable. There are several towns within Blackfeet Reservation. They are: Babb, Blackfoot, Browning, East Glacier Park Village, Heart Butte, Little Browning (aka Seville), North Browning, South Browning and Starr School.
