Fort Belknap Reservation


This Reservations history is corrupt and there is evidence Fort Belknap Reservation may not be a Reservation. Why would chief Little Bear request for Little Rockies Mountain Range to be his Reservation in 1913? And why do they refer to this Reservation as Fort Belknap Indian Community? Below is a map of Fort Belknap Reservation and excerpts from a 1913 news article about chief Little Bear and links to google earth photos of Fort Belknap Agency or just Agency and demographics of this Ojibway Reservation. On May 1, 1888 Sweetgrass Hills Treaty supposedly created Fort Belknap Reservation. At that time (1888) Fort Belknap Reservation had a land area of 537,600 acres or 217,559 hectares. In 1890, they reported that Fort Belknap Reservation had a population of 1,722. Today, it's population is slightly over 2,700. Today, Fort Belknap Reservation has a land area of 675,147 acres or 273,222.2 hectares. Chief Rocky Boy's Ojibway Subjects were a concern to American leaders during early 1930's. In 1934, they reported they wanted to add land to Fort Belknap Reservation for chief Rocky Boy's Ojibway Subjects, as well as to Rocky Boy's Reservation and at Great Falls. Fort Belknap Reservation received most land. Close to 140,000 acres. Fort Belknap Reservation is one of chief Rocky Boys many Reservations and Reserves. There are 3 organized communities within FBR. They are Fort Belknap Agency, Hays and Lodge Pole. However, there are other communities that are included as being a part of those 3 organized communities. They are actually distinct communities. Dodson and Harlem are off Reservation yet are predominantly Ojibway Towns.



This Reservation is mysterious. Chief Little Bear had connections to Fort Belknap Reservation. He told whites in Lewistown, Montana in December 1913, that he was an American ally and helped fight Ojibway's during 1876-1877's War in Montana. He was well acquainted with Fort Belknap Reservations region. He made mention of Black Butte and Rocky Point. There's a Black Butte east of Lewistown and north of Fort Maginnis. However, Wild Horse Lake is 20 miles or 32 kilometers southeast of Black Butte. Another Black Butte is located 13 miles or 21 kilometers west of Fort Belknap Reservation. There's a Wild Horse Reservoir 47 miles or 76 kilometers slightly southeast of that Black Butte a few miles west of Fort Belknap Reservation. His interpreter Peter Kenawash, possibly had difficulties translating chief Little Bears information. Chief Little Bear made it clear, he went towards Black Butte and Rocky Point, to fight in that war against chief Sitting Bull in 1876. They used Milk River to reach Missouri River, then proceeded west towards Great Falls.



Chief Rocky Boy sent letter to President Wilson in 1913, telling him he will stay neutral in European Conflict. He meant Mexico's Civil War. After chief Rocky Boy learned he had his Reservation within Blackfeet Reservation stolen in 1910, he probably fled to Mexico. American leaders were negotiating with chief Rocky Boy in 1913 about a new Reservation, as a result of Chief Rocky Boy staying out of Mexico's Civil War. It's adjacent to Great Falls. It was reported in newspapers in summer of 1914, that chief Rocky Boy was headquarted in Great Falls with 700 of his Ojibway Subjects. These two events are related. Chief Little Bear did not like chief Rocky Boy. He didn't consider him a real chief. However, in 1902 chief Rocky Boy sent letter to President Roosevelt telling him that chief Rocky Boy was leader of landless Ojibway's in various parts of the United States. Chief Little Bear was bothered by that because he knew chief Rocky Boy was highest ranking Ojibway leader. They used chief Little Bear to be chief Rocky Boy's doppleganger! Supposedly chief Little Bear (it's really chief Rocky Boy) was asking for Fort Belknap Reservations Little Rockies Mountains to be his Reservation, in 1913. In 1896, American leaders forced FBR leaders to cede some of their Reservations south. It was for 1,000's of Ojibway's rounded up by Colonel Pershing's American Soldiers and chief Little Bears Ojibway Soldiers, at Great Falls. Many were Relocated to Fort Belknap Reservation. At least a third or possibly half of FBR, was given to chief Rocky Boy. Many Ojibway's at Fort Belknap Reservation, continue to cling to their Ojibway Nationality. Reservation leaders won't recognize them however. We know, however, that FBR is one of chief Rocky Boy's many Reservations and Reserves.
