Isabella Reservation of Michigan


Located in central Michigan, is Isabella Reservation which was created from corrupted August 2, 1855's Detroit Treaty. Below is a map of where Isabella Reservation must be located and links to google earth photos of one of their town sites. Although most Ojibway People of Michigan did follow prophesy and migrate west and north, many stayed in Michigan. American leaders did not want them leaving Michigan. Montana Ojibway leaders along with Michigan Ojibway leaders (they are Saginaw and Black River and Swan Creek Ojibway's - there are Black River and Swan Creek Ojibway's in Montana that are not Federally recognized nor State recognized), negotiated with American leaders about new Ojibway Michigan Reservations. We will refer to them as Saginaw River Ojibway's! American leaders were somewhat agitated about negotiating this treaty! An agreement was reached on August 2, 1855 in which 98,395 acres (we have to increase land area size because of treaty discrepancy) was allotted to 1,943 Ojibway People, in 6 townships in Isabella County (it wasn't yet organized or a County in 1855) where there was unsold land. August 2, 1855's Detroit Treaty is very corrupt! Saginaw Bay Reservation was supposedly created with August 2, 1855's Treaty. However, treaty text makes no mention of Saginaw Bay! It only reads "U.S. sets apart all unsold public lands in Townships 17 and 18 North and Ranges 3, 4 and 5 East." There's no mention of what County or otherwise! By way it's written, it indicates it's only one Reservation. On May 14, 1855 President Pierce, by executive order, withdrew from market, to prepare for the new Ojibway Reservation, the whole of townships 13, 14, 15 and 16 North and Ranges 3, 4, 5 and 6 West. We have to include Townships 17 and 18 North and Ranges 3, 4 and 5 East, for obvious reasons! There's 6 townships involved! It means there was no Reservation set aside adjacent to Saginaw Bay!



One township has a land area of 23,040 acres or 9,324 hectares. Six townships have a land area of 138,240 acres or 55,944 hectares. We have to increase the number of acres allotted to the 1,943 Ojibway's, to 138,240.5 acres or 55,944 hectares. We must deal with organizations of Michigan Counties. Isabella County was organized in 1859. So in 1855, there's a discrepancy! Supposedly they drew Isabella County's boundaries long before 1859 yet Isabella County didn't become a Michigan County until 1859. In 1855, Midland County was organized or as historians have written, Reorganized in 1855. We can't exclude that information. It means Midland County is involved! In fact, Midland County is where most of Isabella Reservation is located. They made a blunder when they Reorganized Midland County in 1855! Isabella Reservation has a land area of 216.0 sq. mi. or 559.4 sq. km. Average allotment size to the 1,943 Ojibway's was 70 acres. On October 18, 1864 another treaty was negotiated and signed which ceded Saginaw Bay Reservation. We have to exclude it. It's fraudulent! Demographics of Isabella Reservation can't be determined! There is one Ojibway Town we will name Saginaw River. Chippewa River is a branch of Tittabawasse River (it's really Saginaw River) located just north of this Isabella Reservation community. Nearly all land is covered by woodlans, hills and wetlands. Isabella Reservation was not subject to white settlement or no Surplus Land was available to cede this Reservation. Ojibway's were allowed to sell their land allotments. Ojibway leaders definitely did not agree to those treaty terms. They also demanded a compact form Reservation. Ojibway's of Isabella Reservation are closely related to Montana Ojibway's and Kansas and Oklahoma Ojibway's.
