Cheyenne River Reservation


One of several Reservations in South Dakota, Cheyenne River Reservation is a violated Ojibway Reservation that's suppose to be adjacent to Standing Rock Reservation. Below are maps of this Reservations correct boundaries and links to google earth photos of Cherry Creek. Ojibway People lving there, no longer know who they are. They've been brainwashed. Origins of their "Sioux" identity is where Sault (it's pronounced identical to Sioux) Ste. Marie, Michigan is. They commenced to calling Ojibway's that lived at and near Sault Ste. Marie "Sioux" long ago. Eventually they commenced to calling them "Sault'teaux (it's supposedly pronounced as so-to yet it's corrupted or should be pronounced as soot-to), to cover-up their deception. These Ojibway's of South Dakota are a lost cause. They don't know about Seven Fires Prophecy nor would they follow Seven Fires Prophecy if they knew about it. They also don't know about their Dakota name origins. It's from an Ojibway word for "alliance." It's "Wi-do-ko-da-di-win." Cheyenne River Reservation covers around 1,500 to 1,600 sq. mi. That's after their domain was violated. It originally covered 4,000 to 5,000 sq. mi. Population of Cheyenne River Reservation according to 2010's census is 8,074. That's for their original Reservation. After much of their Reservation was ceded, Cheyenne Reservation was smaller. Indians make up 6,067 of it's population. Whites make up 1,713 of it's population or nearly 30% of it's population.

Below are maps of CRR. Eagle Butte is located well off Reservation as you can see. One is from 1911 and one is a map i drew of CRR using google earth. In 1907, American leaders set aside 4 townships or 92,160 acres for Ute Indians that supposedly tried to migrate from Utah to South Dakota. They were really Ojibway Indians from Montana led by chief Rocky Boy. They were being forced to relocate from their native Montana to South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming. East of Northern Cheyenne Reservation they abruptly stopped. They refused to continue their trek to South Dakota then commenced heading back home. They were stopped near Northern Cheyenne Reservation and forced to resume their trek to South Dakota, Utah and Wyoming. After reaching CRR, they were set aside their own Reservation. Their Reservation is CRR's southwest portion. It's communities include Bridger, Cherry Creek, Red Scaffold and Tankini. East Cheyenne River Reservation communities include La Plant, Swiftbird and Whitehorse. There's 2 unorganized (UO) communities. On May 29, 1908, American leaders broke treaty again and opened up Cheyenne River Reservation to white settlement. Thus, why CRR is smaller. Cheyenne River Reservation is one of chief Rocky Boy's many Reservations and Reserves. Ridgeview is located within CRR. It's an obvious white community. It has about 25 or so housing units. There are at least 19 Indian villages within Cheyenne River Reservation. Eagle Butte and North Eagle Butte, is largest. Indian household sizes are larger than whites. It's common for Indian towns to have average hosehold sizes from 3.0 persons per housing unit to over 4.0 persons per housing unit. There is almost no economic development at all, except at Dupree and North Eagle Butte.
