Crow-Northern Cheyenne Reservation
Among the eight Native American Reservations in Montana, is the large Crow Indian Reservation, which you can learn more about further below. This Reservation borders the Northern Cheyenne Reservation. Since the two Reservations are connected, it obviously means that they are the same Reservation. Why would this Reservation be considered as two? Most likely because of the determination of the Anishinabe people to cling to their Algonquian identity. After the whites commenced to utilize the filthy Dawes Act in the early 1900s, many Chippewa's became very concerned about the future of their Reservation they shared with the Arikara, Hidatsa (the Crow), and Mandan Indians, they had once subjugated.
From Utah, Idaho, Wyoming, South Dakota, North Dakota, and Montana many Chippewa ogimak became alarmed about the land allotments the Americans were going to force them to accept. All remaining land on the Reservations (surplus lands) would be sold to white settlers and those Indians who received land allotments, would have the right to sell their land allotments, to non Indians. Chippewa ogimak knew what that meant. The loss of the Reservations.
Though historians claim that the Cheyenne from the Kansas-Nebraska-Oklahoma region fled from there to return to their former homeland in Montana, then were set aside a Reservation next to the Crow Reservation, we have been given good reasons to ignore that. Cheyenne people are Chippewa's. Cheyenne is a corrupted form of the Anishinabe word for south. South in Anishinabe is shaw-an. It is not sha-wan! I have written shaw-an as syllables in order for you to correctly pronounce it. You now know how the name Cheyenne originated. Cheyenne is not a Lakota word as white historians claim.
Then Shawnee (Shawnee people are Anishinabek of course) is also another Anishinabe word. It means southerner in Anishinabe. If in Anishinabe the correct pronounciation of southerner is in fact shaw-an-ni, we then should ignore the other possible way of pronouncing southerner in Anishinabe. Of course, that is sha-wan-ni. The whites simply dropped the "an" syllable in shaw-an-ni, to name the southern Anishinabek the Shaw-nee. You should by now know the correct pronounciation for the Anishinabe word for south is shaw-an. Of course, the whites used Cheyenne to name a group of Chippewa's who lived from Wyoming, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas, Colorado, Oklahoma, and to Texas. Shoshone is also an Anishinabe word. It is derived from Shawnee! Shone and Shawnee! Forget about the "Sho" because the whites simply added it to "Shone." The Shoshone are also Chippewa!
Reading the life story of the Crow (Dakota) chief Plenty Coups, will be beneficial to all Native Americans. Plenty Coups thought is was preferable to join the whites to help the whites exterminate (destroy) Native Americans. Read the Seven Fires Prophecy! His story is a very sad one! One which has no courage! One which must by used to explain to Native American young ones, what will occur if you don't stand up to defend your life!
The 1898 Bear Island War (aka the Spanish-American War)
In 1898, the Chippewa's of Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin rose up to fight the evil white race. In 1889, the United States passed the Nelson Act. It eradicated all Chippewa Reservations in Michigan, Minnesota, and Wisconsin excepting the Red Lake Reservation and a tiny part of the White Earth Reservation. Up to 30,000 Chippewa's fled to Isle Royale to escape from the evil intentions of the evil white race. They had been warned by prophecy of the evil intentions of the white race. Canada and the United States would not leave the terrified Chippewa's alone. They invaded Isle Royale in 1898 and a short brutal war followed in which up to 15,000 white soldiers were killed and wounded and 4,000 Chippewa's were killed and wounded. The whites were so full of corruption they lied to the world about the event. Canada and the United States, had no choice but to return the Reservations and enlarge the Leech Lake Reservation to over 10,000 sq. mi. Canada set aside all of northern Ontario, northern Manitoba, and northern Saskatchewan to be a Chippewa Reservation. And Chippewa land in Montana was obviously involved!
The 1899 Negotiations
After the 1898 war, a delegation of Chippewa leaders from Minnesota and elsewhere, visited Washington D.C., in early 1899, to negotiate an end to the 1898 Bear Island War. Several thousand Chippewa's refused to surrender and continued the war. An agreement to end the war was reached sometime in 1899. It would have an impact on the Crow-Northern Cheyenne Reservation. On August 14, 1899, an agreement was reached with the Chippewa's and the United States, which took Crow land east of the Big Horn River, and gave it to the Chippewa's living on the Northern Shoshone Reservation, Northern Cheyenne Reservation, Tongue River Reservation or whatever the Reservations real name is. The maps below will help you understand. The United States ratified the agreement on April 27, 1904. Actually, the March 19, 1900 agreement which enlarged the Northern Cheyenne Reservation, is the correct date!
In 1903, maps showed the area between the Crow Reservation and Chippewa Reservation, as being unassigned. That changed in 1908. Historians recorded the Crow ceded the northern part of the Reservation when they signed the 1899 agreement. On June 21, 1899 Treaty 8 was signed. However, the Anishinabe Nation did not cede their land. If they did cede any of their land within the land area covered by Treaty 8 in Canada, it was located in the Peace River Valley. It may cover up to 20,000 to 30,000 sq. mi. The land area of Treaty 8 covers over 324,000 sq. mi. Other legislation which resulted from the 1899 negotiations include 78,000 acres of the Wind River Reservation, being leased to the whites who used 40,000 acres of it to establish Boysen State Park. What you may not know is the fact that white historians conspired to rob the Chippewa's of everything. In the case of the Crow who are mainly Chippewa, research "Gros Ventre People." You will learn of the obvious conspiracy. The Crow people who live east of the Big Horn River, need to wake up. You are being played by the whites.
After the Americans commenced to hand out land allotments after 1904, Chippewa ogimak on the Crow Reservation, knew they had to act if they wanted to save their Reservation. More Chippewa's and other Indians from South Dakota, Utah, and Wyoming fled their Reservations in 1906. Many were stopped before proceeding westward as they were told to do in the Seven Fires Prophecy and placed in military forts, especially in South Dakota. That be Fort Meade. The Crow are also known as the Hidatsa. The Hidatsa are also known as the Gros Ventre. The Gros Ventre are really Anishinabe. That means the Crow are a mixture of Anishinabe and Dakota. It also means the Crow people must wake up!
This Reservation is off limits. Much of the land located along the rivers such as the Big Horn River and others, was lost to some whites but the Reservation was not dealt the massive land loss of other Reservations. Nearly all of the Reservation is mountainous. The mountainous terrain of the Crow Reservation was undesirable to the white invader. The white invader was far more prone to steal (break promises) Indian land which was extremely profitable agriculturely. The Flathead and Fort Peck Reservations were opened up to white settlement. The abundant profitable agriculture land within the boundaries of the Flathead Reservation was stolen by the white invader, as was the agriculture land of the Fort Peck Reservation. Both the Flathead and Fort Peck Reservations, are Reservations only to represent the early days when they were entirely Indian. Currently, the two Reservations may present their countries as being Indian Reservations but that is a misconception. We can save the two Reservations but their leaders will probably go on as have earlier leaders.
The Crow-Northern Cheyenne Reservation is doing well enough to provide a certain degree of stability about the future. However, the white invader deliberately brought about chaos and confusion to corner the citizens of this Reservation. Instead of looking upon each other as being foreigners, the leaders of this Reservation must unite. By doing so it will strengthen their future. The population of the Crow Reservation was 6,894 according to the 2000 census. Whites accounted for 1,551 of the 2000 population. However, at the official Crow Reservation website it places the Indian population of the Crow Reservation at 8,143. So an obvious discrepancy about the population of the Crow Reservation must first be corrected. The whites probably account for 20% of the Reservations population instead of near 25%.
On the Northern Cheyenne Reservation, the Chippewa's there have also been forced by the whites to lose their Chippewa Tribal identity. That may have been the main reason for the near war in 1897 and why some possibly fled the Reservation in 1906. Historically, this Reservation was established with the signing of the 1868 Fort Laramie Treaty. In the 1851 Fort Laramie Treaty, the corrupted Americans claimed that they recognized that the Crow people controlled over 38,000,000 acres of land. That may have looked good on paper and sounded good to the Crow people, but the Chippewa's claimed almost all of western North America by conquest. The whites refused to recognize the Chippewa's lived in the western part of North America. That is how corrupted they are!
That is best illiustrated in the 1851 and 1868 Fort Laramie Treaties. The 1868 Fort Laramie Treaty set aside an over 8,000,000 acre Reservation for the Crow people. However, the corrupted Americans again forced the Crow to cede much of the Reservation in 1882, and in 1891 (it coincides with the signing of the ten cent an acre treaty) which was the western part of the Crow-Northern Cheyenne Reservation, and in 1904 which was the northern part of the Crow-Northern Cheyenne Reservation. Below are maps from 1903 and 1908 which will help you realize the obvious cover-up! The Northern Cheyenne Reservation obviously begins at the Big Horn River. It is the larger of the two Reservations. Carefully look over the map of the Northern Cheyenne Reservation which has "Shoshone" on it!
At the present time the Reservation has two districts. The western one (it is the smallest) is really open and non Indians own 709,167 acres of the Reservation, or most of the Crow Reservation. The western District (Crow Reservation) is located west of the Big Horn River. The eastern district is off limits. It is located east of the Big Horn River. It is owned almost entirely by Native Americans. Many Hidatsa (Crow people) live on the Northern Cheyenne Reservation. Economically, both districts are endurring hard times. Examples include the settlement of Crow Agency. It has a population of over 1,500 but it has few businesses. Lame Deer is worse off than Crow Agency. Lame Deer has a population of a little over 2,000 but has about as many businesses as does Crow Agency.
Below are the demographics of this Reservation. Average household size is 3.7. There is a total of 3,051 housing units with owner occupied units numbering 1,901, while renter occupied units number 1,150. Below is a list of the towns on this Reservation which are predominantly Indian.
Crow-Northern Cheyenne Reservation Demographics
Covers 4,546 sq. mi.
Population is 11,364
Hispanic: 296 - Hispanic population is corrupted as usual. Mexicans are predominantly descended from the Native Americans who lived in the eastern part of the United States. The whites have forced them to lose their tribal identities.
Language is Dakota - Fabricated Cheyenne
