Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
The Hopi Indian Reservation
An extension of the Turtle Mountain Reservation
Research how the establishment of the large Hopi Reservation came to be and you will eventually decide on your own that some sort of conspiracy is involved. I've been oblivious about the circumstances surrounding the creation of the Hopi Reservation because i thought it was set aside before the Navajo Reservation but it was actually set aside years after the Navajo Reservation was set aside in 1868. And i was a bit confused because it is within the Navajo Reservation. I recently did some research about the Hopi Reservation and one very important bit of information stands out. The year the Hopi Reservation was set aside.
December 16, 1882
After i learned that the Hopi Reservation was set aside on December 16, 1882, i knew after all the research i have done about the Turtle Mountain Reservation that the Hopi Reservation is in fact an extension of the Turtle Mountain Reservation. On December 8, 1882, ogima Big Bear signed treaty which ended the long war the Chippewa's had been fighting against the United States and Canada. Nearly two weeks later the Turtle Mountain Reservation was set aside. That happened on December 21, 1882. In between the 13 days, the Hopi Reservation was set aside. That happened on December 16, 1882 of course. Now, i don't have the tools to use to prove the Hopi Reservation is the real Turtle Mountain Reservation but since the Hopi Reservation was set aside five days before the Turtle Mountain Reservation, it leaves me thinking.
Some apparently believe that when the Hopi Reservation was set aside on December 16, 1882, it was already within the Navajo Reservation. That is incorrect. In 1882, the Navajo Reservation was east of the Hopi Reservation. With each land addition to the Hopi Reservation (not the Navajo Reservation) the Hopi Reservation became larger. The United States deliberately initiated this predicament. Since the United States resorted to corruption, we will first deal with the Hopi. We have no choice. Before the Hopi Reservation was set aside in 1882, the Navajo Reservation was set aside in 1868. Land additions increased the size of the Navajo Reservation in 1878 and 1880. Nearly all land additions that followed after the Hopi Reservation was set aside in 1882, were for the Hopi Reservation and not the Navajo Reservation. Since the United States initiated this incident (the deliberate act of defrauding of a people) we have to deal with the Hopi first. I know it's confusing but the Chippeway's understand. They have no choice.
What led to the creation of the Hopi Reservation in 1882, were events at the Navajo Reservation which enraged Chippewa leaders and Chippewa parents. Chippeway's were already living at what is now the Hopi Reservation in 1882 and for an extremely long time. The whites were forcing Chippeway children to attend schools where the Chippeway children were brainwashed or robbed of their nationality. It was traditionalists against liberals. The traditionalists refused to negotiate with the liberal Chippewa's. After ogima Big Bear signed treaty on December 8, 1882, the United States included in the treaty agreements, for new Reservation lands for the Chippewa's living in the west including Colorado, New Mexico, Oklahoma, and Utah.
At the time, the Anishinabe Nation was still intact. The whites used schools to destroy the Anishinabe Nation later on. Commencing in 1884, land additions were added on to the Hopi Reservation (not the Navajo Reservation) which increased the size of the Hopi Reservation. Also in 1884, the United States reduced the size of the Turtle Mountain Reservation in North Dakota. Put the puzzle together! Navajo leaders will not accept this information. Hopi leaders will probably not accept this information as well. However, read the Seven Fires Prophecy and you'll have a change of mind. The land dispute between the Hopi and Navajo is a ruse the whites are using to corrupt the Hopi and Navajo. Hopi and Navajo leaders now know they have to end the dispute by claiming the Hopi-Navajo Reservation are the same Reservation, if either Reservation is still intact.
1895: Origins of the forced Relocations
It seems if this following information is actually true, the United States is trying to honor treaty agreements reached with the Anishinabe Nation in the 19th century, if the Reservation is intact. The two June 1, 1868 treaties set aside the Navajo Reservation for the Anishinabe people of Arizona, Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Kansas. One of the two June 1, 1868 treaties was signed with the Kansas Chippewa's (the Black River and Swan Creek Chippewa's who are also known as the Saginaw and Sauk). It is no coincidence both treaties were signed on the same day in 1868.
In May of 1895, ogima (chief) Little Shell III and other government leaders of the Anishinabe Nation, were forced to build a fort to defend themselves from the United States. They sent a letter to the President of the United States requesting to discuss the vast Turtle Mountain Reservation issue. We can trace the following relocations to the incident some white newspapers in 1895 referred to as the Turtle Mountain War, which took place in early May of 1895. It was not a war however. The illegal eradication of the vast Turtle Mountain Reservation followed after ogima Little Shell III and the other principle Chippewa leaders, were arrested in May of 1895.
A response from the President of the United States came in the form of white police officers surrounding their fort which led to the Chippewa leaders surrendering including ogima Red Thunder who was 87 years old at the time. He attacked a white police officer with his knife. Ogima Little Shell III was late in arriving with nearly 200 reinforcements. When they reached the fort, ogima Little Shell III was arrested and the Chippewa soldiers with him were told to leave. With the principle leaders of the vast Turtle Mountain Reservation now in jail then forced to move to the fabricated Turtle Mountain Reservation in Rolette County, North Dakota, the United States wasted little time in forcing the Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming Chippewa's to relocate to other areas. One was Canada and the other the southwestern United States.
1896: Great Falls Relocation
On June 18, 1896, the United States sent a number of their soldiers to Great Falls, Montana to force the Chippewa's living near Great Falls to relocate. They claim they sent them to Canada but we have to deal with the Navajo land additions and other Reservations set aside in Arizona, California, Colorado, and Utah. Most of the Chippewa's were boarded on to trains and sent to the Ute Mountain Reservation in Colorado and Utah, and the area with the land addition number 1884 on the Navajo land additions map. The United States did not confirm the 1884 land addition until 1933. Others were sent to the Agua Caliente Reservation and Twenty-Nine Palms Reservation in California. Many others were sent to Alberta and Saskatchewan. Once the Montana Chippewa's learned about the forced deportations, many took to the mountains hiding. White historians claim ogima Little Bear was sought out after the soldiers reached west Great Falls but he was gone. Ogima Buffalo Coat was taken instead. Not all of the Chippewa's left Great Falls. Many returned. Great Falls was not the only location in Montana where Chippewa's were forced to relocate elsewhere in 1896.
Ogima Rocky Boy
After learning that ogima Little Shell III had been arrested then forced out of Montana, the Montana Chippewa's needed a new leader. Ogima Rocky Boy may have become that leader in 1896. He was allowed by the United States to travel almost anywhere in the western United States on trains for free. In 1899, another forced deportation probably happened. The Montana Chippewa's were continuing to live throughout the entire land areas of the July 16, 1855 Hell Gate Treaty and October 17, 1855 Blackfeet Treaty, including in Wyoming. They were sent to the area within the Navajo Reservation where the land addition numbers 1900 and 1901 are.
In 1905, another forced deportation happened. White historians claim ogima Little Bear requested from Canadian leaders for a number of Montana Chippewa's to move to the Montana Reserve (Alberta) and Onion Lake Reserve (Alberta and Saskatchewan). Many others were deported to the Hopi Reservation where the land addition year 1905 is.
1906: Ute Relocation
In 1906, the Ute Exodus to the Pine Ridge Reservation happened. It was really Chippewa's from Montana. They were captured in southeastern Montana, in November of 1906, and sent to the Cheyenne River Reservation of South Dakota, and Uintah-Ouray Reservation of Utah, and probably the Hopi Reservation. These Chippewa's may have been POWS at Fort Keough, Montana. Fort Keough is near where Miles City, Montana is now. Or they were forced off of the original Blackfeet Reservation or the original Crow Reservation which was set aside on September 17, 1851, when the Fort Laramie Treaty was signed. Both land areas of the September 17, 1851 Fort Laramie Treaty, are a part of the vast Turtle Mountain Reservation. The supposed Ute's were captured in Montana, just south of Miles City, east of the Crow-Northern Cheyenne Reservation. Many were from Wyoming.
1907: Black Hills Relocation
In 1907, an event happened in the Black Hills of southwestern Montana which added more land to the Hopi Reservation. This new land is referred to as the "Checkerboarded Area." It is located mainly in New Mexico and usually does not show up on Hopi-Navajo Reservation maps. It has the letters I, J, and K on the letters map and covers quite a lare area of land in Arizona and New Mexico. Below are links to maps of the Hopi-Navajo Reservation including the correct Hopi-Navajo Reservation. Between 1906 and 1918, the United States intensified their deportations of the Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming Chippewa's who continued to live throughout the entire land areas of both the July 16, 1855 Hell Gate Treaty and October 17, 1855 Blackfeet Treaty (the September 17, 1851 Fort Laramie Treaty). Other locations they were sent to in 1907, are the Chemehuevi Reservation, Twenty-Nine Palms Reservation, and Santa Rosa Reservations of California. Twenty-Nine Palms Reservation was set aside in 1895 but the first contacts between an Indian agent and the Indians at Twenty-Nine Palms, didn't happen until 1908. Most may have been sent to the Pine Ridge Reservation. Thus, the reason for the Pine Ridge Indians attraction to the Black Hills.
The Black Hills of southwestern Montana are sacred to the Montana Algonquin's. The Black Hills are not located in South Dakota and Wyoming. Lewis and Clark wrote in their journals on June 2, 1805, that they were above (north) of the Black Hills. They were at what is now Loma, Montana on June 2, 1805. The Highwood Mountains are south of Loma. They look like they are a part of the Little Belt Mountains and Big Belt Mountains (Rocky Mountains) from Loma but are not.
Butte, Montana (it is located in the Black Hills) leaders warned the Chippewa's living throughout Silver Bow County and probably the Anaconda region as well, in 1907, that if they didn't leave the region within two days they would be jailed. It adds up to another forced deportation out of Montana. In 1907, around 750 Lemhi Shoshone supposedly fled the Lemhi Reservation (the Lemhi Reservation was eradicated in 1889) and were relocated to the Fort Hall Reservation in Idaho. Parts of the Black Hills extend to the old Lemhi Reservation. Those Chippewa's in southwestern Montana who left with their horses, relocated to the Fort Hall Reservation but those Chippewa's who left on trains moved to the Hopi Reservation. During these crimes, ogima Rocky Boy was there to support the terrified Chippewa's. It was through ogima Rocky Boy's effort that the new Chippewa Reservations were set aside.
In 1908, the United States intensified the forced deportations of Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming Chippewa's out of Idaho, Montana and Wyoming. In some cases the United States found land for the Chippewa's on some of Montana's Indian Reservations (the Blackfeet and Flathead Reservations - Rocky Boy Reservation was already decades old in 1908 - it was set aside either in 1879 or 1887 and was originally known as the Fort Assiniboine Indian Reservation) but most were forced out of the Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming region, to the Hopi Reservation.
1908-1909: Flathead Relocation
In 1908, ogima Rocky Boy negotiated with senator Dixon then Indian Agent Frank C. Churchill about finding new Reservations for the Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming Chippewa's. Valley County, Montana was one location but the whites protested. Most were sent to the Hopi Reservation and the San Pasqual Reservation (1910) in California. Between 1908-1916, the United States negotiated with ogima Rocky Boy about relocating the Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming Chippewa's to the Hopi Reservation. These Chippewa's were continuing to live throughout the entire land areas of the July 16, 1855 Hell Gate Treaty and October 17, 1855 Blackfeet Treaty (the September 17, 1851 Fort Laramie Treaty) including in Wyoming. They kept to themselves. They also lived on Reservations. Those on Reservations refused to accept the Land Acts.
An example is what happened at the Flathead Reservation in either late 1907 or early 1908. The Flathead Reservation Land Act was to steal a large area of the Reservation. A farmer at the Flathead Reservation contacted senator Dixon and told him about the Chippewa's led by ogima Rocky Boy. Dixon quickly responded because he knew violence was going to happen. Dixon added an amendment to an Indian Appropriation Bill which authorized the Secretary of the Interior to spend $30,000 to settle the Chippewa's living at the Flathead Reservation led by ogima Rocky Boy, on a new Reservation. They wanted the Chippewa's settled on an existing Reservation. They were relocated to the Blackfeet Reservation in November of 1909 and the Hopi Reservation. The Bill passed on April 30, 1908.
1911-1912: Blackfeet Relocation
In 1911-1912, another forced deportation happened. It is during this unrest in 1911-1912, that the only mention i know of about the Colorado River region being a place to settle the Chippewa's from the Montana region, is online. Many of the Chippewa's settled where the land additions year numbers 1884 and 1900 are on the Navajo land additions map. Many probably settled in the area in Arizona and New Mexico where the letters I, J, and K are. In 1911, ogima Little Bear again negotiated on behalf of the Chippewa's with Canadian leaders supposedly. Many moved to the Onion Lake Reserve. The United States supposedly placed the land additions with the letters J and K, back to the public domain in 1911. However, the Navajo Reservation continues to assign each area as a district. In late 1910, ogima Pennato (ogima Rocky Boy's brother) led an exodus off the Blackfeet Reservation. It continued into early 1911. Other Reservations were set aside for them in Arizona and California, in 1912.
1916-1918: Rocky Boy Relocation
In 1916-1918, the last major deportation of the Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming Chippewa's happened. As mentioned, Rocky Boy Reservation was probably set aside in 1879 or 1887. It was first known as the Fort Assiniboine Indian Reservation. It was connected to the Judith Basin Reservation set aside on January 31, 1874. It covered over 6,000 sq. mi. After ogima Rocky Boy died in April of 1916, the United States reduced (they didn't set aside Rocky Boy Reservation) to less than 100 sq. mi. Unrest followed, and more Chippewa's were relocated to the Hopi Reservation where the year numbers 1884 and 1918 are. More Montana Chippewa's were set aside the Cocopah Reservation and Papago Indian Reservation of Arizona, in 1917.
In 1927, Joseph Dussome formed the Lost Band of Chippeway's of Montana. Though he was a representative of the original Blackfeet Reservation (he represented the Box Elder District in 1939) he also negotiated on his own. The United States negotiated with Joseph Dussome about setting aside more Chippewa Reservations for the Montana Chippewa's who continued to live throughout the entire land areas of both the July 16, 1855 Hell Gate Treaty and October 17, 1855 Blackfeet Treaty. More land was added on to both the Fort Belknap and Rocky Boy Reservations with Joseph Dussome's help. And more land was added on to the Hopi Reservation with the support of Joseph Dussome. It is where the year numbers 1930 and 1934 are.
Nearly all the land additions were added on to the Hopi Reservation. The 1901, 1930, and 1934 land additions are suspicious. I suspect the United States allowed many Japanese people to settle in the 1901 or 1934 land additions areas. World War II was already being fought in Asia in the late 1920s. Japan, which was allied with the Chinese and whites, was fighting the Manchurian Ojibway's (the Soviet Union) in the early 1930s. Their goal was learning the Anishinabe Language.
There are links to maps below which will help you learn the exact location and size of the Hopi-Navajo Reservation. On the years map, the years 1882, 1884, 1900, 1901, 1905, 1918, 1930, and 1934 is the location of the Hopi Reservation (District). The Navajo Reservation (District) is where the years 1868, 1878, 1880, 1886 (it was supposedly originally a part of the January 6, 1880 land addition but was withdrawn on May 17, 1884 then restored on April 24, 1886), 1907, and 1913 are. It is the actions of the United States which led to this Hopi-Navajo disagreement. You are being played by the whites. It is now time to end the play. Both the Hopi and Navajo Reservations are the same Reservation. It was originally known as the Deseret Reservation.
On the letters map, the Hopi District is located where the letters Q, E, D, F, G, H, L, M, N, O and P are. The area where the letters C and CC are located, are the 1880 and 1886 land additions and are a part of the Navajo District. The Letters A, B, C, I, J, and K belong to the Navajo District as well. Though the years map is thought to be the correct Hopi-Navajo Reservation, links to maps of the Navajo Reservation Districts (and letters map) below tells otherwise. If the Hopi-Navajo Reservation is still intact, it could represent the United States honoring treaties but they did so without the proper approval from the government of the Anishinabe Nation. And they also forced the Chippewa's to lose their nationality. The Hopi were the most determined to keep their original nationality.
May 17, 1884: It includes land in Utah. It is located where D and E are on the letters map.
January 8, 1900: It is located adjacent to the original Hopi Reservation on the west. It is located where the F is on the letters map. The land was probably set aside for Montana Chippewa's.
November 14, 1901: It is located where the letter G is on the letters map. The land was probably set aside for Montana Chippewa's.
March 10, 1905: It is located where the letter H is on the letters map. The land was probably set aside for Montana Chippewa's.
November 9, 1907: It is located where the letter I is on the letters map. The land was probably set aside for Montana Chippewa's who partook in the events of the 1906 Ute Exodus and the forced relocation out of the Black Hills of southwestern Montana.
November 9, 1907: It is located where the letter J is on the letters map. The land was probably set aside for Montana Chippewa's who partook in the events of the 1906 Ute Exodus and the forced relocation out of the Black Hills of southwestern Montana. It does not show up on the years map. The Navajo are still claiming the land as theirs by assigning a district name and number.
November 9, 1907: It is located where the letter K is on the letters map. The land was probably set aside for Montana Chippewa's who partook in the events of the 1906 Ute Exodus and the forced relocation out of the Black Hills of southwestern Montana. It does not show up on the years map. The Navajo are still claiming the land as theirs by assigning a district name and number.
May 7, 1917: It is located where the letters L, M, O, P are on the letters map. The land was probably set aside for the Chippewa traditionalists from Rocky Boy Reservation. On the years map it is located where the year 1918 is.
May 23, 1930: Tusayan Forest was added on to the Hopi Reservation. It is located where the letter L is on the letters map. ? (suspicious). Possibly set aside on May 7, 1917. Japanese people were possibly relocated here to spy. The Chippewa language was their goal. World War II was already being fought and the Chippewa's living there spoke fluent Chippewa.
February 21, 1933: Tusayan Forest was added on to the Hopi Reservation. It is located where the letter P is on the letters map. ? (suspicious). Possibly set aside on May 7, 1917. Japanese people were possibly relocated here to spy. The Chippewa language was their goal. World War II was already being fought and the Chippewa's living there spoke fluent Chippewa.
March 1, 1933: It is located where the letter N is on the letters map. It does not show up on the years map. ? (suspicious). Japanese people were possibly relocated here to spy. World War II was already being fought.
June 14, 1934: It is located where the letter O is on the letters map. ? (suspicious). Japanese people were possibly relocated here to spy. The Chippewa language was their goal. World War II was already being fought and the Chippewa's living there spoke fluent Chippewa.
The Expanded Hopi Reservation
It includes those Reservations which border the Hopi-Navajo Reservation, and Reservations which are near the Hopi-Navajo Reservation which were set aside in and after 1882. They include the Camp Verde, Chemehuevi, Colorado River Reservation (Chemehuevi were relocated there after 1907), Fort Mojave, Hualapai, Jicarilla, Las Vegas, Southern Ute, Ute Mountain, Yavapai, and Zuni Reservations. It includes the Navajo Canoncito Reservation set aside in 1925 and the Pueblo Reservations it borders which are Acoma, Isleta, and Laguna.
