Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
Prepare your citizens for possible catastrophes. What's this about? It's about white leaders proving to Native Americans, that they are not their brothers and sisters. White leaders are enraged. I recently made a video titled Parkdale: Ghetto of Great Falls, Montana. Click Here To Watch Parkdale: Ghetto of Great Falls, Montana. It has increased the hate and rage of them whites. This must be taken very seriously by all non whites. It tells me white leaders want catastrophes to happen. Non white leaders throughout the world must take action. We have been warned not to trust whites. Them whites will be deceptive.
Leech Lake Reservation
They claim Leech Lake Reservation only owns a small percentage of their nation. Three large lakes within their nation, cover nearly 300,000 acres. They claim that over 560,000 acres is owned by Federal Government. However, Federal Government holds Reservation land in trust for Indian Nations, which means their nations land that covers over 560,00 acres is, in fact, owned by Leech Lake Nation. Zaga Gamichi Dodem means Leech Lake Nation. This Reservations or Leech Lake Reservation, history is somewhat of a mystery. Leech Lake Reservation is one of chief Rocky Boy's Reservations. More about that is further below. Below are demographics of Leech Lake Nation. Below that, is more historical information about this Reservation.
Demographics of Leech Lake Reservation
Covers 1.6 million acres or 2,500 sq. mi. (864,158 acres before 1898)
Total Population: 10,025
Indian Population: 4,561
Hispanic: 144 - 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.

Origins of Leech Lakes Name
Ojibway word for leech is za-ga-skwad-ji-me. However, they (Ojibway People) don't know they have to use zagaskadjime as it was meant. Regular word for leech then plural, then past tense and then present tense. Za-ga is their actual word for leech. Za-ga-skwad is plural. Za-ga-skwad-ji is past tense. Za-ga-skwad-ji-me is present tense. Ojibway word for big is mi-chi or git-chi. Read this carefully. Ga-mi-chi. It means large lake. Leech Lake is large. If it was small, we would use a diminutive or ga-miiz. Zagaigan is not an Ojibway word for lake. It is an Ojibway word for human made lake or Reservoir. Any Ojibway word with "i-gan" at it's end, represents an object made by humans. It's obvious that Ojibway's from old times (before whites invaded) made lakes to grow wild rice. Thus, why they had "za-ga-i-gan" as a word for lake. Ojibway's in Florida, flooded much of Florida to grow wild rice. Wild Rice grew abundantly in Florida. Today, it may be different. I do know from old books that wild rice grew abunantly in Florida.
Leech Lake Reservation covers 1,309.9 sq. mi. or 3,392.6 sq. km. or 838,336 acres or 339,262 hectares. Actually it is much larger and includes both Red Lake Reservation and White Earth Reservation. They like you thinking they own only around 40,000 acres. However, that is incorrect. Only a small part of extreme western part of Leech Lake Nation, is not within Chippewa National Forest. Remaining land area of their nation, is within Chippewa National Forest. Don't be fooled by people who tell you, their nation owns less than 5% of their land. American leaders first signed a treaty with Ojibway leaders of Leech Lake Nation, before establishing Chippewa National Forest which is, of course, Leech Lake Reservation. However, chief Hole in the Day did not surrender which means Red Lake Reservation and White Earth Reservation are yet a part of Leech Lake Nation.
Chief Rocky Boy and his Ojibway's
He probably rose to power during 1895-1896s Ojibway Deportations out of Montana. In early 1902, chief Rocky Boy sent a letter to President Roosevelt requesting for Reservations. Supposedly his requests were denied. However, not long after supposedly being denied, chief Rocky Boy then proposed requesting to have his Ojibway's settle on surveyed and unsurveyed land. They accepted his request. Chief Rocky Boy demanded mountainous land, forested land and wetlands. Chief Rocky Boy was elected gitchi ogima of Montana Ojibway's in 1902. He knew about 1892s McCumber Agreement, which is that infamous 10¢ an acre Treaty, and that it would be ratified by early 1904. Thus, his attempt to establish new Ojibway Reservations. President Roosevelt singled out forested areas, wetlands and mountainous areas to set aside for chief Rocky Boy's Ojibway's. One location is what is now Chippewa National Forest. When first established in June of 1902, Chippewa National Forest was known as Minnesota Forest Reserve. Many Montana Ojibway's were also Deported to White Earth Reservation in late 1902. Many Forest Reserves set aside between April of 1902 and April of 1904, were set aside for Montana Ojibway's including Chippewa National Forest. Center of this conspiracy is that infamous 10¢ an acre Treaty which was ratified on April 21, 1904. McCumber Agreement was fraudulent or signed by 24 Ojibway leaders who did not have authority to do such. Chief Rocky Boy agreed to accept that infamous 10¢ an acre Treaty per his demands. Forested areas set aside adjacent to extisting Reservations, between April 1902 and April 1904, were set aside for Montana Ojibway's. Below is an article from 1902 about chief Rocky Boy sending out Ojibway scouts to find new Reservation lands in Idaho and Montana. He also sent them out to other locations including Alaska, Canada, Dominica and Puerto Rico. Below is that excerpt from that June 4, 1902 Butte Inter Mountain Newspaper:

(SPECIAL TO INTERMOUNTAIN)
Anaconda. June 5. Since receiving word
from Washington that each of their num-
ber are entitled to 160 acres of land some-
where in this vast country, the band of
nomad Chippewas encamped near the city
of Anaconda have assumed an air of ac-
tivity to which they have been strangers
many long months.
The question which is now agitating
the members of the band is where they
shall settle down and till the soil, take up
the white man's burden and lose trace of
the noble aborigine.
The entire band is thoroughly imbued
with a desire to get away from their pres-
ent quarters and already Chief Rocky Boy
has dispatched runners to look over vari-
ous sections where they are to be allowed
No Suke, a half breed Chippewa, com-
monly known as "Jim" and who is a power
in the band is strongly in favor of the
band taking land in the vicinity of To-
bacco plains, or along St. Mary's river
in northwestern Montana.
The Best Place.
This Indian is familiar with the greater
portion of Idaho and Montana and of all
the country open for them to settle in he
considers that the most favorable.
However, there is some land in Idaho
that some favor and Indians are now ab-
sent looking over both strips. When they
return and report on the lands they have
seen the Chippewas will decide where
they want to go and will lose no time in-
striking their tepees and hitting the trail.
This will be good news to the residents
of Anaconda and vicinity and especially
to the ranchers living below in the Deer
To these ranchers the Indians have
proved a continual source of annoyance
because of their polluting the waters of
the creek with camp offal and the con-
sequent danger of disease.
So we have proof of Deportations of Montana Ojibway's commencing in late 1902. In 1901, chief Rocky Boy led some Montana Ojibway's to Coeur d'Alane Reservation which is located in northern Idaho. They sailed Flathead River to Coeur d'Alene Reservation. Other locations Montana Ojibway's were Deported to in 1902-1903, are Reservations in Washington State. They were not small Deportations but major Deportations that possibly involved 1,000s of Montana Ojibway's. We have to do more research to find those Reservations where those Montana Ojibway's led by chief Rocky Boy, were Deported to.
February 22, 1855 Establishment of Leech Lake Reservation
On that date Cass Lake Reservation, Lake Winnibigoshish Reservation and Leech Lake Reservation were set aside. However, that February 22, 1855 Treaty was actually a part of Stevens Treaties. Stevens Treaties were ratified on October 17, 1855 near mouth of Judith River in Montana. War had already commenced before ratification of those Stevens Treaties because of broken agreements made by American leaders. That war is known as Mullan Road War. Ojibway leaders would not tolerate agreements which left them with small Reservations. Cass Lake, Lake Winnibigoshish and Leech Lake Reservations were tiny and revolting to Ojibway leaders. A 1901 census of Leech Lake Reservation, reported a total population of 3,346 including Red Lake Reservation which was under LLR agency control at that time. Leech Lake District had a population of 848. Cass Lake and Lake Winnibigoshish Districts had a population of 435. White Oak Point District (it was really Lake Winnibigoshish District) had a population of 630. Red Lake District had a population of 1,304. Today, we know it is different. Cass Lake District has LLR largest population. That's because of 100's of Montana Ojibway's being Deported to Leech Lake Reservation in 1902 and 1903. They settled near Gull Lake which is about a half a mile west of Tenstrike but were forced to settle near Cass Lake. Gull Lake is almost adjacent to Chippewa National Forest on it's northwest. Below is an excerpt from a December 4, 1902 The Minneapolis Jounal, Newspaper Article, that details a relocation of Mille Lacs Ojibway's (they were really Montana Ojibway's led by chief Rocky Boy) to White Earth Reservation. Gull Lake is really located near Tenstrike. Twin Lakes may actually be Red Lake Reservation. It needs further research.
BLACK SPOT IN WHITE
Gull Lake and Twin Lake Chippewas Have Foresworn All Labor and
Progress and Are Sadly Behind the Times—Mille Lacs Indians,
Soon to Be Moved, Will Have Allotments Near Them.
Special to The Journal.
White Earth Agency, Minn , Dec. 3 —
The fact that the Mille Lacs Indians are
to be removed to the White Earth Reser-
vation is likely to defer the opening of
the Reservation for some years to come.
They will want to take up their allotments
on the northeastern portion of the
Reservation in what are known as the
Twin Lakes and Gull Lakes settlements.
Mullan Road War Expands to Minnesota
In 1855, Yakima War commenced Mullan Road War. By 1860, Mullan Road War expanded to Idaho and Montana. In August of 1862, Ojibway leaders in Minnesota met American Representatives near what is now Grand Forks, North Dakota. Negotiations were about Mullan Road and that part of Red River Colony located in Minnesota and North Dakota. American Representatives were hostile and rude. At some point during those August 1862 negotiations, Ojibway leaders abruptly ended negotiations and left. They then sent 1,000s of their soldiers to attack whites and mixed bloods living in that part of Red River Colony located in Minnesota and North Dakota. They also sent their soldiers to attack white settlers living in southern Minnesota. It was a short and deadly war. On October 2, 1863 Ojibway leaders signed Old Crossing Treaty which ended that conflict. They ceded land in Red River Valley in Minnesota and North Dakota and allowed that part of Red River Colony in Minnesota and North Dakota, to become independent. Throughout 1863 and 1864, Mullan Road War continued in North Dakota. Old Crossing Treaty allowed Ojibway's to keep unceded land.
Establishment of Leech Lake Reservation on May 7, 1864
On May 7, 1864 a treaty was signed between Ojibway leaders and Americans in which Leech Lake Reservation including what is now Red Lake Reservation, was set aside. It is a tricky treaty because it does not mention Red Lake Reservation. Boundaries of Leech Lake Reservation connected Leech Lake Reservation to Red Lake Reservation, near where Rice Lake is located at, at White Earth Reservation. Later, Americans forced leaders of White Earth Reservation to illegally cede 4 townships in their Reservations northeast. That be where Rice Lake is located. They did so because that area connects Leech Lake Reservation, Red Lake Reservation and White Earth Reservation. On March 17, 1867 White Earth Reservation was added to Leech Lake Reservation.
1898 Curtis & Nelson Acts
In October of 1898, chief Hole in the Day led an Ojibway Rebellion in northern Minnesota. This was probably a part of 1898s Spanish-American War. What followed saved Minnesota's Chippewa Reservations. Nelson Act of 1889, eradicated all Chippewa Reservations except Red Lake Reservation and a tiny part of White Clay Reservation. United States waited until 1898 to eradicate those Reservations. In 1898, United States passed that illicit Curtis Act and Nelson Act. Chief Hole in the Day's War, forced United States to restore those Reservations. However, vast Leech Lake Reservation was illegally fragmented into Minnesota's Ojibway Reservations of today. More about chief Hole in the Day's War is below.
In October of 1898, chief Hole in the Day led an Ojibway Rebellion in northern Minnesota. It was probably a part of 1898s Spanish-American War. What followed saved Minnesota's Chippewa Reservations. 1898's Nelson Act and Curtis Act, eradicated all Chippewa Reservations, except Red Lake Reservation and a tiny part of White Earth Reservation. Leech Lake Reservation was actually eradicated. Chief Hole in the Day's War forced United States to restore those Reservations.
After 1898s Rebellion, a delegation of Leech Lake Chippewa's visited Washington D.C. to negotiate with American leaders. Those negotiations ended that conflict yet chief Hole in the Day refused to surrender or he continued to honor those treaties which created Leech Lake Reservation including Red Lake Reservation and White Earth Reservation. As mentioned, Chippewa National Forest (aka Minnesota Forest Reserve) was established in June of 1902. It helped to ease anger Ojibway leaders felt by being betrayed by Americans.
Chippewa's of Leech Lake Reservation have forgotten about their new Reservation which is known as Chippewa National Forest. That probably occurred a decade or two after Chippewa National Forest was established, or soon after death of chief Hole in the Day. United States probably bribed Anishinabe leaders but we can read between lines! Creation of Chippewa National Forest did do as all had wanted. Leech Lake and probably White Earth Reservation ogimak, were content with that agreement reached with United States, and fears of white settlers diminished. Chief Hole in the Day and other Ojibway leaders, refused to surrender and cede vast Leech Lake Reservation which means it's still intact. After new Leech Lake Reservation was established, size of Leech Lake Reservation doubled to 2,500 sq. mi. or 1.6 million acres.
