Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
Turtle Mountain Reservation
This Reservations history is extremely corrupt. It is a mixed blood Reservation set aside in December of 1882. The United States is corrupting the Little Shell Chippewa's of Montana, by brainwashing them into accepting they came from the Turtle Mountain Reservation of Rolette County, North Dakota. In no way do the Montana Chippewa's have links to the TMR of Rolette County, North Dakota. However, many have links to Minnesota. It is about the infamous 10¢ an acre treaty. The land (around 11 to 12 million acres) is located in Montana, or within the Blackfeet Reservation created on October 17 of 1855. It is more properly known as the Flathead Mountain Reservation. It gets it's name from Square Butte which is located about 20 miles west of Great Falls. There are several other small mountains near Great Falls which have mountain tops which are flat. That is the origin of the name Turtle Mountain or Turtle Mountains. It is really Flathead Mountains. In the early 1870s, the whites who lived in southern Manitoba and northern North Dakota, had become independant of Chippewa rule. During the War of 1812, the whites invaded southern Manitoba and established a colony. Chippewa soldiers brought them under their control and ruled them for nearly 70 years. By the late 1870s, the whites led by Louis Riel, were establishing white colonies in Montana which enraged Chippewa leaders. By 1877, the whites who were subjugated by the Chippewa's, were free. They commenced to start trouble with the Chippewa's. It escalated during the 1885 Northwest Rebellion. Louis Riel initiated the trouble by starting white colonies in Saskatchewan and Alberta. After chief Big Bear surrendered in December of 1882, the United States allowed far more whites or mixed bloods, to settle at Turtle Mountain Reservation. They also allowed more whites and mixed bloods to settle at Red Lake Reservation. TMR is extremely corrupt.
