Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana

L'Anse Reservation

Located in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, around Keewenaw Bay, is L'Anse Reservation which has been violated by American leaders. Historically, creation of this Ojibway Reservation can be traced back to War of 1812's end. After Ojibway's had been defeated in that war, a series of treaties followed in which Ojibway's ceded much of their land to whites. On September 30, 1854 a large group of Ojibway ogimak or leaders, from Michigan's Upper Peninsula, northern Wisconsin and northeastern Minnesota reached a treaty agreement with Americans in which they ceded a large area of their land. It was supposedly one of histories largest Indian land cessions. It's known as September 30, 1854's La Pointe Treaty. It was really one of Isaac Stevens Treaties. Over a decade earlier or on October 4, 1842, Ojibway leaders supposedly ceded a large area of land in Michigan's Upper Peninsula (it's western half) and northern Wisconsin including where American leaders set aside Menominee Reservation per that October 4, 1842 Treaty known as La Pointe Treaty of 1842, treaty agreements. This Reservation is also known as Keeweenaw Bay Indian Community. There is evidence that Michigan's Upper Peninsula remains unceded Ojibway land. According to a Tuesday March 28, 1893 The Anaconda Standard Newspaper Article, Ojibway leaders did not cede Michigan's Upper Peninsula. Below those L'Anse Reservation demographics, is an excerpt from that Tuesday March 28, 1893 The Anaconda Standard Newspaper Article which details why L'Anse Reservation is much larger. Zeba is this Reservations only Indian community. It is a cdp or Census Designated Place that covers 3.62 sq. mi. Population of Zeba is 480 according to a 2010 census. Indians make up 225 of Zeba's population. Including mixed bloods it's 262. Zeba covers a large area and has at least 2 distinct clusters of housing units. L'Anse is pronounced as "ons" (without an L sound) in French, while in English it's pronounced as "Lance" and that's pronouncing it with an L. Below are google earth photos of Zeba, Michigan.

The Upper Peninsula of Michigan is the
Property of Chippewa Indians.

DETROIT, Mich., March 27. Something
in the nature of a startling discovery has
been made by H. F. Chipman, son of
Congressman Chipman, in regard to the
title of the lands of a large part, if not the
whole, of the upper peninsula of this
state, and, if his conclusions are borne
out by a more minute investigation, and
sustained by the courts, every acre of
land in the peninsula west of the Sault
and Mackinac to the Montreal and
Menominee rivers, and from Lake
Superior to Lake Michigan and the straits,
inclusive of city and village lots, will be
handed over to their rightful owners, the
descendants of the Chippewa Indian
nation of the Lake Superior region. Chipman
asserts that his investigations convinced
him that no cession of the upper
peninsula lands was ever made to the
United States government, and therefore
the title deeds in every registry of deeds
in the region indicated are as worthless as
so much blank paper.

So we have convincing evidence of a cover-up. You noticed they wrote title of the lands of a large part, if not the whole, of the upper peninsula of this state. They were not certain of how much Ojibway land in Michigan's Upper Peninsula, remained unceded. It obviously deals with Michigan's Upper Peninsula's western half. It does not include Michigan's Upper Peninsula's eastern half. That was ceded years before 1842. And this cover-ups center is Isaac Stevens Treaties which were ratified near Judith Rivers mouth in Montana, on October 17, 1855. Per treaty agreements, they set aside a large Ojibway Reservation in Michigan's Upper Peninsula's western half. L'Anse Reservation is much larger. You would have to read that September 30, 1854 La Pointe Treaty to understand. Below is an excerpt from that September 30, 1854 La Pointe Treaty:

1. For the L'Anse and Vieux de Sert bands, all unsold lands in townships in Michigan, 51 N., R. 33 W.; 51 N., R. 32 W.; E. 1/2 50 N., R. 33 W.; W. 1/2 50 N., R. 32 W.; and all of 51 N., R. 31 W., lying W. of Huron bay.

Well, they didn't make clear their real intentions. That's very obvious. They did provide information about a location for a tiny bogus Reservation. What they should have done was clearly write what those treaty agreements were. So all unsold lands in townships in Michigan can be understood to represent just that. H. F. Chipman knew about September 30, 1854's La Pointe Treaty. It can be used to prove an existence of a large Ojibway L'Anse Reservation. There is a large Ojibway Reservation in Michigan's Upper Peninsula's western half. It includes L'Anse Reservation and Ontonagon Reservation. Lac Vieux Ojibway's moved from L'Anse Reservation after 1854's La Pointe Treaty, to where they live now. We can't include their Reservation. We can, however, include Ontonagon Reservation which is this cover-ups real hidden details. It includes mountains south and east of L'Anse Reservation, between Marquette, Ishpeming, Lake Michigamme, Nestoria then up to Sturgeon River. It then follows Sturgeon River to where Perch Rivers mouth is, then continues following Sturgeon River to Prickett Lake. From Prickett Lake, it probably follows a line directly southwest to Bad River Reservation and includes Porcupine Mountains. I'm not certain about L'Anse Reservations correct boundaries yet i do know it is a very large Reservation.

L'Anse Reservation supposedly covers 92.0 sq. mi. or 58,880 acres. It has been violated by American leaders. After Ojibway leaders knew they had been deceived, they followed prophecy and migrated west. They were yet migrating from Michigan, west, in 1890. A group of 60 people from Mount Pleasant, Michigan or Isabella Reservation, left for Linn County, Oregon on May 1, 1890. Below is an excerpt from a Thursday May 1, 1890 The Anaconda Standard Newspaper Article. In that same issue, a few paragraphs below that article detailing a group of 60 people leaving Isabella Reservation on May 1, 1890, is another article which details a group of Ojibway's near Columbia Falls, Montana crossing Flathead River. They were on a trek yet didn't have horses. Montana Ojibway's always had horses. Below is an excerpt from that article:

A colony of sixty People from Mount Pleasant, Isabel county, Mich., will leave on the first of May for Oregon. They are expected to settle in Linn County.

An interesting sight was witnessed on Tuesday last, occasioned by the removal from the east to the west side of the river of a lodge of Chippewa Indians on their way to Half Moon. The nomads were thoroughly equipped for the march, a feature of the scene being a troop of patient and well trained dogs, each packed male fashion, with fifty or more pounds of camp goods appertaining to the tribe.
Demersville Inter State.

Half Moon may be Half Moon Slough which is located 5 miles north of Flathead Lake or Half Moon Bay, Oregon which is 62 miles southwest of Linn County. They would have had to trek south to Missoula then follow Clark Fork River to Coeur d'Alene Reservation. From there, they would have had to trek southwest to Snake River then follow Snake River west to The Dalles in Oregon, then trek 37 miles southwest to Siletz Reservation. Yakima Reservation is 22 miles north of The Dalles. They obviously agreed to relocate to Siletz Reservation. During those times, Siletz Reservation was located in Benton County, about 25 miles west of Linn County. Siletz, Oregon has a population of 1,212 accoding to a 2010 census. Of that, 223 claimed to be Native American and 114 mixed bloods. According to at least 1% of Siletz residents claim to be Ojibway.
