Platte Anishinabe Reservation
It was supposedly located in extreme southern Minnesota, western Iowa, and northwestern Missouri. However, the land this Reservation covered, was far more extensive. It covered all of southern Minnesota, from the Reservations the United States supposedly set aside for the Menominee and Winnebago, in the 1830s and 1840s, to northern Missouri. However, i will focus on the 5 million acre Reservation the United States set aside for the Anishinabe Nation on September 26, 1833, especially the Platte Purchase which will be the main focus of this information. Click here to learn about the September 26, 1833 treaty and see the map of the 5 million acre Platte Anishinabe Reservation. Scroll down to the bottom of the page and click on Iowa 2 to see the Platte Anishinabe Reservation. The Platte Purchase was a treaty agreement supposedly reached between the Ioway, Sauk and Fox, which ceded the land in what is now northwest Missouri, to the United States on September 17, 1836. The Platte Purchase was land the United States set aside for the Anishinabe Nation on September 26, 1833. You know what that represents! The information on this page is correct! The Anishinabe people did not take kindly to having their land stolen from them. In the summer of 1836, a war known as the Heatherly War was fought in northwest Missouri. It was really an extension of the Texas War for Independence. Click here to learn about Native American land cessions.
The July 15, 1830 Treaty
On July 15, 1830 the following tribes supposedly reached a treaty agreement with the United States which ceded land in Iowa, Minnesota, Missouri, and Nebraska: Sauk & Fox; Dakota; Iowa, Missouri, Omaha, and the Oto. Most of the land was located in Iowa. The Iowa, Missouri, Omaha, and Oto are really Anishinabek who absorbed a great many Dakotas. They claim they are Winnebago and lived in northeastern Wisconsin or within Anishinabe Domain. It is well known that the Iowa, Missouri, Omaha, and Oto could speak Anishinabe. The land involved in this treaty was not ceded. The Anishinabe Nation (Sauk) only agreed to have the land involved, recognized as being Anishinabe. The land involved in this treaty are assigned the land cession numbers 151, 152, 153, 154, 155, and 262.
The September 15 and 21, 1832 Treaties
On September 15, 1832 the Winnebago (it was the Anishinabe Nation - the Winnebago are really Anishinabek) reached a treaty agreement with the United States which ceded Anishinabe land in Illinois and Wisconsin, where the land cession number 174 is located. Nearly one week later, the Sauk and Fox (they are also Anishinabe excepting the Fox possibly) supposedly reached a treaty agreement with the United States which ceded land in Iowa where the land cession number 175 is assigned. The treaties set off Black Hawks War. Negotiations about these treaties which were only one, had obviously commenced earlier in the year. As part of the treaty agreement, the United States recognized the Winnebago owned land in southeastern Minnesota and northeastern Iowa, where the land cession number 267 is located, which adjoins the Minnesota land assigned the land cession number 289.
The September 26, 1833 Treaty
On September 26, 1833 the Anishinabe Nation reached a treaty agreement with the United States which ceded their land west of Lake Michigan. It officially ended Black Hawks War. As part of the treaty agreement, the United States recognized the Anishinabe Nation owned land in Minnesota, Iowa, and Missouri where the land cession number 151 is located. They considered the land to be a Reservation. However, Anishinabe people were already living in western Iowa and had for an extremely long time. The area is the Platte Anishinabe Reservation. The Platte Reservation was actually much larger. It included the land the United States recognized as being an Anishinabe (Winnebago) Reservation located in southeastern Minnesota and northeastern Iowa, where the land cession number 267 is assigned. It also included the area in Minnesota and South Dakota, where the land cession number 289 is assigned.
The June 5, 1846 Treaty
Does the Mexican-American War bring up any ideas? The Platte Reservation was really much larger than i am portraying! On June 5, 1846 the Anishinabe Nation and the United States, supposedly reached a treaty agreement which eradicated the Platte Reservation set aside with the treaty of September 26, 1833. All is not well! This treaty did not become official until 1848. Part of the Anishinabe Platte Reservation is still around. It is the Praire Potawatomi Reservation of Kansas; the Sauk and Fox Reservation of Nebraska and Kansas; the Iowa (Ioway) Reservation of Kansas and Nebraska; the Kickapoo Reservation of Kansas; and the Ponca Reservation of Nebraska. This treaty robbed the Anishinabe people of their tribal identity. The whites forced them to take on a Potawatomi identity. They also forced them to take on an Ioway, Kickapoo, and Sauk and Fox identity.
The October 13, 1846 Treaty
A treaty was supposedly reached between the Winnebago (it was the Anishinabe Nation) which supposedly eradicated the Winnebago Reservation set aside in southeastern Minnesota and northeastern Iowa, on November 1, 1837. As part of the treaty agreement, a new Winnebago Reservation was set aside in Minnesota on land supposedly ceded by the Pillager Chippewa's (the military of the Anishinabe Nation) with the signing of the August 2, 1847 treaty. It is numbered 268 on Minnesota land cession maps. It covered 800,000 acres. Then nearly three weeks later on August 21, 1847, the Anishinabe Nation supposedly reached a treaty agreement which ceded land in Minesota where the land cession number 269 is located. It adjoined the Winnebago Reservation.
The October 18, 1848 Treaty
This is the treaty that officially eradicated the Platte Reservation excepting in Minnesota and South Dakota. On October 18, 1848 the Menominee (they are really Anishinabe) supposedly reached a treaty agreement which ceded all their land in Wisconsin, and set aside a new Menominee Reservation where the Anishinabe Nation supposedly ceded land on August 21, 1847. Supposedly the Menominee never occupied their new Reservation. It is very confusing and obviously reeks of a conspiracy. Supposedly the land in Iowa, Minnesota, and South Dakota where the land cession number 289 is located, had yet to be ceded in 1848. However, the land between the supposed Chippewa land cessions of 1847 and the Anishinabe Reservation set aside with the signing of the September 26, 1833 treaty (the land area in Iowa, Minnesota, and South Dakota assigned the land cession number 289), was in fact Anishinabe and not Dakota.
Dakota renegades illicitly reached a treaty agreement on July 23, 1851 with the United States, which ceded the Anishinabe land in Iowa, Minnesota, and South Dakota assigned the land cession number 289. It would lead to great unrest among the leaders of the Anishinabe Nation and the 1862 Minnesota Indian War. The Anishinabe Nation owned that land by right of conquest. On May 12, 1854 the Menominee (the Anishinabe Nation) was forced to cede the large Reservation set aside for them on October 18, 1848. They supposedly never occupied the Reservation. It is assigned the number 269 on Minnesota land cession maps. On February 27, 1855 the Winnebago (the Anishinabe Nation) was forced to cede the Reservation set aside in Minnesota where the land cession number 268 is located. They were supposedly set aside a much smaller Reservation further south in southern Minnesota, which covered 18 sq. mi. It was located along the Blue Earth River. It is assigned the land cession numbers 416 and 439.
The March 8-12, 1857 Spirit Lake Massacre
An event occurred in early March of 1857 on the supposed defunct Platte Anishinabe Reservation. It is known as the Spirit Lake Massacre. What is confusing about this massacre is knowing that the Platte Anishinabe Reservation was supposedly eradicated in 1846. The Massacre occurred in the far northern part of the Platte Anishinabe Reservation, near Okoboji and Spirit Lake. which are located just south of the Minnesota border. Historians are claiming the Santee Dakota carried out the massacre which killed 35 to 40 whites. We are not stupid! What we need to find out is if the Platte Anishinabe Reservation still existed in 1857. As mentioned earlier, the Platte Anishinabe Reservation was much larger and included land in Iowa, Minnesota, and South Dakota where the land cession number 289 is located. The Santee Dakota ceded their (Anishinabe land by conquest) land in 1851, where the land cession number 289 is located on Iowa, Minnesota, and South Dakota land cession maps. which means we have to deal with a cover-up. After the massacre, the Anishinabe soldiers fled north up to Minnesota with 4 white captives.
Only 14 Anishinabe soldiers participated in the Spirit Lake Massacre. That obviously indicates most of the Anishinabek who continued to live on the Platte Anishinabe Reservation, did not participate in the massacre. What followed after will not be easy to fill in the missing information. Either the Anishinabek who continued to live on the Platte Anishinabe Reservation, followed prophecy and fled west into central South Dakota, or the United States forced them to relocate towards the west. Either all of the Platte Anishinabe Reservation still existed in 1857 or a part (the northern part) still existed. What followed was the treaties made in 1858 and 1863 which established the Ponca (Santee) Reservation of Nebraska, the Old Winnebago (now Lower Brule Reservation) and Crow Creek Reservation of South Dakota, and the Yankton Reservation of South Dakota which is about 10 miles from the Ponca (Santee) Reservation. We know from instinct the United States instigated the events which led to the Spirit Lake Massacre. They did so by telling Anishinabe ogimak of the Platte Anishinabe Reservation, the Platte Anishinabe Reservation had to go.
Anishinabe people have to deal with this degrading historical event and the eventual forced brainwashing carried out by the evil white race, which was carried out to rob the Anishinabe people who relocated to the Old Winnebago Reservation, Ponca (Santee) Reservation, and the Yankton Reservation of their Anishinabe identity. The following Reservations are what are left of the Platte Anishinabe Reservation:
The Prairie Potawatomi Reservation of Kansas
Though it is the third furthest away from the Platte Anishinabe Reservation, it is the one Reservation white historians will accept as once being a part of the Platte Anishinabe Reservation. Of course, i am referring to the 5 million acre Reservation supposedly set aside for the Anishinabe people by the United States, in September of 1833. You must remember the area already had a large Anishinabe population in 1833. This Reservation covers 121 sq. mi. The white snakes own most of it by outright theft. The 2000 census reported a population of 1,238. Historians claim the United States forced the Anishinabek to relocate from the Great Lakes region, to western Iowa and northwestern Missouri but it was the Seven Fires Prophecy which influenced Anishinabe ogimak (leaders) to order their people to migrate towards the west to join with Anishinabe people already living in the Iowa and Missouri region. The Prairie Potawatomi Kansas Reservation is located in Jackson County, Kansas.
The Kickapoo Indian Reservation of Kansas
It is located closer to the Platte Purchase area of northwestern Missouri but white historians will not accept this Anishinabe Reservation as once being a part of the 5 million acre Reservation set aside in September of 1833. It covers 236 sq. mi., but the white snakes own most of it. It is located in Atchison, Brown, and Jackson Counties, Kansas. The 2000 census reported a population of 4,419. Most are non Indian. No wonder the Anishinabek packed their belongings and fled to Mexico.
The Ioway Reservation of Kansas and Nebraska
The Iowa or Ioway, are really Anishinabek who absorbed many Dakotas. The white snakes have forced them to lose their Anishinabe identity. This Anishinabe Reservation borders another. That is the Sauk and Fox Reservation of Kansas and Nebraska. This is the one Reservation closest to the old Platte Anishinabe Reservation. In fact, it borders the Platte Purchase area of 1836. White historians will not accept this Reservation as once being a part of the Platte Anishinabe Reservation. It covers an area of only 2,100 acres. The 1995 census reported an enrollment population of 2,147.
The Sauk and Fox Reservation of Kansas and Nebraska
It borders the Ioway Reservation. It is the more westerly of the two Reservations. It covers 23 sq. mi. The Sauk and Fox are really Anishinabe excepting possibly the Fox. William W. Warren claimed in his 19th century book "History of the Ojibway People" that the Anishinabe people did not consider the Fox to be Algonquian. Although this Reservation is situated a stones throw from the 1836 Platte Purchase area, white historians will not accept this Reservation as once being a part of the Platte Anishinabe Reservation. It is located in Richardson County, Nebraska and Brown County, Kansas. The 2000 census reported a population of 217 on the Reservation. The whites forced the Anishinabe people of this Reservation to lose their Anishinabe identity.
The Old Winnebago and Crow Creek Reservation of South Dakota
This Reservation which is really one since both are connected, can trace their origins back to Iowa and Minnesota. They are descended from the Anishinabek who lived in Iowa and Minnesota. In 1862, Anishinabe soldiers rose up and fought the white invaders in Minnesota. In fact, the war may have actually commenced when the Spirit Lake Massacre occurred in 1857. After the war, the Anishinabek fled up to Canada and west into South Dakota. Many were forced to relocate to the west by the United States. A treaty was reached on February 23, 1863 which established this Reservation. Historians claim the Old Winnebago Reservation was ceded to the United States with the signing of the March 8, 1865 treaty. We are not stupid! Anishinabek must not be fooled by the whites! The Crow Creek Reservation covers 358,361 acres or 600 sq. mi. The Old Winnebago Reservation covers 132,480 acres or 207 sq. mi. Total area covered by the Reservation is 807 sq. mi. The largest settlements on the Reservation are Fort Thompson and Lower Brule. Lower Brule Reservation has a population of 1,308. Old Winnebago Reservation has a population of 2,225. Total population of the Reservation is 3,533.
The Omaha Reservation of Nebraska
It is one of two Reservations in Thurston County, Nebraska. The other is the Winnebago Reservation. Both Reservations are connected and cover the entire county of Thurston. The Omaha are really Anishinabek who absorbed many Dakotas. It is known that the Omaha spoke Anishinabe and migrated to the Nebraska region from the Great Lakes region. Though the Reservation does not border the Platte Anishinabe Reservation, it is only 10 miles from the old Platte Anishinabe Reservation. Some of the Omaha Reservation is located in Monona County, Iowa. The Reservation covers 141,891 acres or 221 sq. mi. Enrollment is near 6,000. Macy is the largest predominantly Native American settlement on the Omaha Reservation. The 2000 census reported the population of Macy, Nebraska to be 956. Native Americans make up 96% of Macy's population. Walthill is the second largest predominantly Native American town on the Omaha Reservation. The 2000 census of Walthill, Nebraska was 909. Native Americans (68%), mixed bloods and Hispanics (9%), make up 77% of Walthill's population.
The Ponca Reservation of Nebraska
A group of Omaha (Ponca are Omaha) were forced to relocate to Nebraska and South Dakota, after the Spirit Lake Massacre, and were set aside the Ponca Reservation in Knox County, Nebraska on March 12, 1858. They likely were from the Platte Anishinabe Reservation and either relocated towards the west on their own or were forced by the United States to relocate to the west. What is suspicious about the Ponca Reservation, is the fact that it was re-established on March 2, 1899. An event occurred in 1877 which can prove these people are in fact Anishinabe. It is known as the Ponca Trail of Tears. It is no coincidence the Ponca Trail of Tears occurred during the Cheyenne Exodus of 1877-1879. That's because the Ponca are Cheyenne or Anishinabe. In early 1877, 10 Ponca leaders traveled to the Osage Reservation of Oklahoma to negotiate with Osage leaders about having land set aside for them in the Osage Reservation. Of course, the Osage Reservation is their Reservation now. Once they reached the supposed Osage Reservation, no Osage leaders greeted them. They became angry then departed back to Nebraska. The Cheyenne Exodus had commenced. The United States became angry and captured many of the fleeing Cheyenne and forced them to go back to the Osage Reservation.
Many returned north and were likely imprisoned in forts in Nebraska including Fort Niobrara, Fort Omaha, and Fort Robinson. They were set aside the Ponca Reservation on March 2, 1899. The fear of the whites led the whites to terminate the Ponca Reservation in 1966. However, the Ponca Reservation regained federal recognition in 1990. The present Ponca Reservation is the Santee Reservation of Nebraska. Don't be fooled by the whites! It covers 173 sq. mi. The population is 878. The largest settlement on the Ponca Reservation which is predominantly Native American, is Santee. The population of Santee is 302. At least 89% of the population of Santee, is Native American. The Yankton Reservation of South Dakota is but 10 miles from the Ponca Reservation. In fact, both Reservations were originally connected and a part of the Great Sioux Reservation.
The Winnebago Reservation of Nebraska
As mentioned, it is connected to the Omaha Reservation. Some of the Reservation is located in Dixon County, Nebraska and Woodbury County, Iowa. It covers 120,000 acres or 187 sq. mi. The white snakes own most of the Reservation. Some off-Reservation land is located in Burt County, Nebraska. Present population of the Winnebago Reservation is 2,600. The largest town on the Reservation which is predominantly Native American, is Winnebago. The 2000 census of Winnebago was 768. Native Americans make up 92% of Winnebago's population.
The Yankton Reservation of South Dakota
It was established with the signing of the April 19, 1858 treaty. It was set aside for the Anishinabek who lived on the old Platte Anishinabe Reservation. They were forced to relocate west after the 1857 Spirit Lake Massacre. The Reservation has two predominantly Native American settlements. They are Marty and Ravinia. It covers an area of 674 sq. mi. Total population of the Yankton Reservation is near 6,500.
