Saulteau (Sahtu) Nation
Reading old books written in 19th century, has been very helpful in learning exactly who Athabascan People are. According to 1832's Edinburgh Encyclopedia, Athabascan's are Algonquin. To be specific, they are Lenni Lenape. Those old books written in 19th century, especially before 1850, are far more reliable than books written about Native Americans later. Lenni Lenape are also known as Delaware's. They originally lived west or near Missouri River. That be where Alberta, Montana and Wyoming are. An event happened which forced them to migrate east to Atlantic Oceans Coast. That was an invasion of whites. Ojibway People were warned about whites in Seven Fires Prophecy. Lenni Lenape people are really Ojibway. If they spoke Ojibway, it means they are Ojibway. Click here to read Edinburgh Encyclopedia. Ojibway leaders sent many of their soldiers to Hudson Bay then to Beaufort Sea to combat invading whites and invading Eskimos. They gave rise to Chipewyan People including Copper People, Dogrib People and Cree People who are better known as Beaver Indians. Sahtu People are Slavey People who are Chipewyan.
Sahtu or Saulteau Nation is located in Northwest Territories, just north of Dehcho Territory. There are five Saulteau (Sahtu) settlements which make up Sahtu Nations population. They are listed below. Below is a map of Sahtu Nation. Originally Sahtu Territory had a land area of 280,238 sq. km. or 108,200 sq. mi. In 1993, they gave up and agreed to cede their land to greedy Canada. From having a nation of 280,238 sq. km. or 108,200 sq. mi. they agreed to accept a few Reservations not in compact form with a land area of 41,437 sq. km. or 15,999 sq. mi. Since their land is not in compact form, we do not accept 1993's agreement. Their land which has a land area of 41,437 sq. km. or 15,999 sq. mi. must be in compact form.
