Rosebud Reservation


One of several Reservations in South Dakota, Rosebud Reservation is quite large. Below is a map of Rosebud Reservation and Pine Ridge Reservation, it's demographics and links to google earth photos of Mission. We know Rosebud Reservation is an Ojibway Reservation because of what Father Belcourt wrote to Major Woods in 1849. Belcourt described Pembina Chippewa District to Woods in detail. Below is an excerpt from Belcourts letter to Woods:



We understand here, that the district or department called Pembina, comprises all of the country or basin which is irrigated or traversed by the tributaries of the Red River, south of the line of the 49th parallel of latitude. The prairie, rivers, and lakes which extend to the height of land of the Mississippi, and the immense plains which feed innumerable herds of bison to the westward and from which the Chippewa and half breeds of this region obtain their subsistence, contains within their limits a country about 400 miles from north to south and more than five hundred miles from east to west.



Originally, after Great Sioux Reservation was boke up in 1889, Rosebud Reservation land area was 3,228,160 acres. It deals with March 2, 1889's act to open unassigned lands within Reservations. President Grover Cleveland signed March 2, 1889's Act to open unassigned Reservation lands. President Harrison made it law on February 10, 1890. Remember the Date February 10, 1890. Great Sioux Reservation was specifically targeted. However, maps from years before 1889, show Great Sioux Reservation already having their unassigned lands opened. So we know Great Sioux Reservations unassigned lands were opened long before 1889. On February 10, 1890 President Harrison supposedly created 3,228,160 acre Rosebud Reservation. On February 20, 1896 an act was approved that added to March 2, 1889's Act that supposedly allowed Chamberlain, South Dakota to have authority to either by itself or under a system of leases, for securing revenue to their city, to use or lease an island for public purposes. What does that have to do with March 2, 1889's act? At that time, American leaders were conspiring to forcefully Relocate 1,000's of Montana Ojibway's near Great Falls, to other Reservations. They took action to Relocate them in May, June and July 1896. It was reported in 1896, that some 500 Lower Brule Sioux were forced to Relocate during summer of 1896, to lands south of White River, within Rosebud Reservation. June 10, 1896's Indian Appropriation Act allowed for 500 Lower Brule Sioux People to Relocate to Rosebud Reservation. We have to follow evidence along a trail as told to do by prophesy! However, i don't know of any Ojibway People actually doing such!



What happened in Montana in May, June and July 1896, must be investigated by Ojibway People. It's likely that chief Rocky Boy was the Ojibway leader that complained bitterly about the forced Relocations! We know at least 500 Montana Ojibway's were Relocated to Rosebud Reservation in 1896. After long negotiations with Lower Brule leaders and Rosebud Reservation leaders, an agreement was reached in which 442 Lower Brule Sioux agreed to Relocate to Rosebud Reservation. It was approved on March 10, 1898. Per agreements, Lower Brule leaders and their Subjects, agreed to become citizens of Rosebud Reservation. The 442 Lower Brule were allotted 118,880 acres. It's likely they were set aside their own Reservation within Rosebud Reservation however! Then a few years later, American leaders resumed their lust for stealing land. At least that's what historians want you to believe! Supposedly on April 23, 1904 Rosebud Reservation was opened to white settlement. That be settlement in Gregory County and Tripp County, South Dakota according to historians. However, American leaders had already dealt with those areas in 1896! Rosebud Reservation in Mellette and Todd County was left alone. Agreement of 1898 was guarded! Chief Rocky Boy's landless Ojibway's were set aside a 416,000 acre Reservation. Rosebud Reservations Government was set aside 29,392.01 acres for Reservation purposes. According to historians, a total of 1,867,716 acres was allotted to 8,585 citizens of Rosebud Reservation. So 2,313,108.01 acres is involved.



They then try to persuade you to believe that on April 24, 1908 President Roosevelts Proclamation opened 838,000 acres in Tripp County to white settlement. They did that almost 15 years earlier! Nearly all of Tripp County is prime farmland! Then on June 29, 1911 President Taft's Proclamation opened 300,000 acres in Mellette County and Washabaugh County, to white settlement. Between 1900 and 1916, chief Rocky Boy was causing all kinds of problems. He was very defiant! We have to sort through this information to find the truth! In 1896, nearly 500 Montana Ojibway's were Relocated to Mellette County, South Dakota and set aside their own Reservation. Then on April 23, 1904, 8,585 citizens of Rosebud Reservation were allotted 1,867,716 acres. Many of them sold their land allotments to whites. Rosebud Reservations Government was set aside 29,392.01 acres and 416,000 acres was supposedly opened to white settlement yet was given to chief Rocky Boy's landless Ojibway Subjects. Added, it comes to 2,313,108.01 acres or almost the correct land area of Mellette and Todd Counties. In 1896, Rosebud Reservation leaders were forced to cede their land in Gregory County and Tripp County and allow 100's of Montana Ojibway's to Relocate to their Reservation. They then had to deal with defiant chief Rocky Boy! Many people consider Rosebud Reservation to be a former Reservation. Their wrong! This South Dakota Reservation is somewhat mythological! Rosebud Reservation is yet a Reservation. It's located in Mellette and Todd Counties, South Dakota. They have many land allotments in Gregory and Tripp Counties, South Dakota yet that portion of Rosebud Reservation was ceded in 1896. The "Trust Land Allotments and Fee Land Allotments," are yet under Rosebud Reservation jurisdiction or owned by Rosebud Reservation. Many "Fee Land Allotments" were sold to whites. The "Fee Land Allotments" are subject to City, County, State and Federal taxes. The "Trust Land Allotments" are not taxable.



Today, they are having problems determining who owns those land allotments. It's a very complicated task and since land ownership is involved, so is money. Not all "Fee Land Allotments" were sold to whites. Most may be owned by Rosebud Reservation citizens. Allotment acts of March 1, 1907 and May 29, 1908, may have set aside land for chief Rocky Boy's landless Ojibway Subjects within Pine Ridge Reservation and Rosebud Reservation. In 1906 and 1907, around 1,000 Utes from Uintah Valley Reservation in Utah, supposedly fled their Reservation to go to Pine Ridge Reservation. They needed good reasons for doing so yet there was no good reasons for doing so. On July 14, 1905 President Roosevelt's Proclamation to set aside 1,010,000 acres to be a National Forest or protected land, within Uintah Valley Reservation, was well received by Uintah Valley Reservation leaders. They did open 1,004,285 acres of Uintah Valley Reservation to white settlement however. On May 27, 1902, 1,284 Utes were allotted 99,407 acres. Another 60,160 acres was under reclamation. Uintah Valley Reservation yet owned 179,195.65 acres. Uintah Valley Reservation yet had a land area of 1,348,762.65 acres in 1906! What makes 1906-1907's so called "Ute Exodus" not acceptable, is location where they were captured which was a few miles east of Northern Cheyenne Reservation in Montana. They were many of chief Rocky Boy's landless Ojibway's being forced to Relocate to Pine Ridge Reservation. They reached northeast Wyoming then decided they wanted to return to their native Montana. As mentioned, they were captured and forced to Relocate to Pine Ridge Reservation and Cheyenne River Reservation.



Below are demographics of Rosebud Reservation and that of Pine Ridge Reservation. Average household size according to official reports is near 4.0 but could be higher. There are a total of 6,304 housing units at these Reservations, with renter occupied units majority, while owner occupied units less. Only one of these Reservations settlements is located in Tripp County which was originally a part of this Reservation. That is Ideal. This Reservation still owns some land in Tripp County. And Tripp County has a Native American population of around 600. About half live in Winner which is Tripp County's county seat.
