Peguis Reservation of Manitoba


This Ojibway Reservation originated further south near Selkirk. Below is a map of Peguis Reservation and links to google earth photos of it's main town. Chief Peguis may have been chief John Smith who lived at Leech Lake Reservation in Minnesota. He may be John Smith responsible for Muskoday First Nation. It's known they originally lived at St. Peters Reserve near Selkirk, Manitoba. They supposedly migrated to Muskotayo Reservation in Saskatchewan in 1875-1876. In 1877, some Ojibway's from St. Peters Reserve, agreed to relocate north to where Fisher River Reservation is. They did not originally live at Norway House or Rossville. And they are not Cree. Ojibway Soldiers drove Cree Ojibway's west into Alberta and Saskatchewan. Cree Indians are really Beaver Indians. They have 3 Reserves in Alberta and 6 in British Columbia. Included as being Beaver Indians are Sekani Indians and T'suu Tina Indians. They became allies of whites. Thus, why Ojibway Soldiers were harsh with them. Not all Ojibway People agreed to relocate north in 1877. Canada continued to demand that they cede St. Peters Reserve and relocate north. In 1907, Ojibway leaders led by chief Rocky Boy, agreed to relocate to Peguis Reservation. Most may have come up from Montana. Canada could not control their Greed for land. According to historians it was an illegal transaction. Peguis Reservation including that of Fisher River, has a land area of 143.2 sq. mi. or 370.1 sq. km. It should be 4 townships or 144.0 sq. mi. or 373.0 sq. km. On-Reserve population is 4,235.
