Spirit Lake Reservation


Chief Little Shell I loved this location in North Dakota. Below are links to google earth photos of Fort Totten Town. Chief Little Shell I lived at an Ojibway village on Graham's Island which is an island within Spirit Lake. He was killed in battle during War of 1812 or shortly before that conflict. According to John Tanner, chief Little Clam or Little Shell, asked him to accompany him to Spirit Lake to hunt and trap. However, Tanner knew Ojibway People were in a Civil War. Before chief Little Shell I went to Spirit Lake, his young son was murdered by Ojibway Soldiers who were trying to keep Ojibway People together. After murdering chief Little Shell's son, they took his medallion he received from whites which signified he sided with whites. Nearly everything written about chief Little Shell III, are lies. There are photos of chief Little Shell III wearing a medallion he received from whites which indicates he sided with whites. Their Civil War dealt with 1774-1794's War and treaty agreements. Ojibway leaders were forced to allow white fur trade companies to establish more trade posts within their domiain. It led to an increase in Civil War among Ojibway People. Whites, Eskimos and Beaver Indians (they are really Cree Ojibway's who became traitors) invaded southern Manitoba before War of 1812. They were capable of forcing their way as far south as Spirit Lake yet could not establish a presence in that location. Ojibway Soldiers had defeated them by 1817. They signed 1817's Selkirk Treaty with their enemies and granted them a small colony known as Red River Colony. Ojibway Nation subjugated Red River Colony until 1869. On February 19, 1867 Spirit Lake Reservation was created. It's original land area was 495.7 sq. mi. or 1,283.8 sq. km. A total of 137,381 acres was allotted to 1,189 citizens of Spirit Lake Reservation. Another 921.44 acres was allotted for Spirit Lake Reservation Government purposes. Today Spirit Lake Reservation land ownership is mostly Fee Land Allotments which totals 184,451 acres. Trust Land Allotments number 34,026 acres. Spirit Lake Reservations Government owns 26,283 acres. Spirit Lake Reservations current land area is 383.0 sq. mi. or 992.0 sq. km. However, it's a former Reservation. Ojibway People called Spirit Lake "Ghost Lake." We now know why they called it "Ghost Lake." The lake has a habit of shrinking and increasing. The lake can shrink to the size of a very small lake than quickly increase to a lake that resembles an ocean. Chief Red Bear claimed much of Ghost Lake as his domain. I don't know when Spirit Lake Reservation was opened to white settlement and eradicated. However, there are several Ojibway communities within this former Reservation. It was reported in 1920, that Spirit Lake Reservations population was 950. They reported that 556 were full bloods, 264 were of predominantly Ojibway blood and 130 were half or less Ojibway. After allotments were issued, what was left was termed "Surplus Land" and was ceded.
