White Earth Reservation (Wa-vi Wa-vi-gan Dod-em)
Located in northwestern Minnesota, the White Earth Reservation has a corrupted past. It was an important location for the military and police totem (the Chippewa's) of the Algonquin Tribe, who used the location to build up their military strength in order to force their way out on to the plains of Canada and the United States. This Reservation was established after the 1862 Minnesota Indian War ended. Both Chippewa's and their Dakota allies, from northwestern Minnesota and northeastern North Dakota, settled on this Reservation (Dakota's after the 1889 Nelson Act - White Earth Reservation is not an official Dakota Reservation). Dakotas came up from the Mille Lacs region after the 1889 Nelson Act and settled down to live at the White Earth Reservation. Though no treaty was ever signed between the Dakota and United States which made the White Earth Reservation an official Dakota Reservation, we know the Dakota settled here, as well as at Mille Lacs. White Earth is a term which is a threat. It can be taken to represent Racial Cleansing or Purification. White Earth Reservation must be named White Clay Reservation. That is what the Chippewa's named the area or Wa-vi Wa-vi-gan Ish-sko-ni-gan, which means White Clay Reservation. By 1920, the Indian population of Wa-vi Wa-vi-gan Ish-sko-ni-gan was 6,659. By 1930, the Indian Population of Wa-vi Wa-vi-gan Ish-sko-ni-gan was 8,059. That increase in population can be attributed to the forced Deportations the Montana Ojibwa's were sill going through in the 1920s. In 1873, a treaty was signed between the Little Shell Pembina Chippewa's of Montana and North Dakota and the United States, in which they agreed to relocate to White Earth Reservation. They were still Deporting the Montana Ojibwa's to White Earth Reservation, up to the early 20th century.
Soon after the United States brought forth the Indian Reorganization Act in 1934, a vote to either accept or reject the Indian Reorganization Act followed in that same year. At White Clay Reservation, the Indian population was 8,059. That was in either 1930 or 1934. During the next few decades the Indian population of White Clay Reservation declined dramatically. In the 2000 census, the Indian population at White Clay Reservation was 3,378. Other similar population declines happened at the Grand Portage Reservation of Minnesota, Nett Lake (Bois Forte) Reservation of Minnesota, Iowa Reservation of Kansas and Nebraska, Sac and Fox Reservation of Kansas and Nebraska, Prairie Potawatomi Reservation of Kansas, Goshute Reservation of Nevada and Utah, Skull Valley Reservation of Utah, and the Quinault (Quinaielt) Reservation of Washington. The population decline at those Reservations can be attributed to the Indian Reorganization Act. White Clay Reservation experienced the most dramatic of the population declines. The Indian population of White Clay Reservation (Wa-vi Wa-vi-gan Ish-sko-ni-gan) should be well over 30,000 today. The Indian Reorganization Act made certain it would not. In the 1930s, only the Navajo Reservation and the Pine Ridge-Rosebud Reservation, had a larger Indian population than White Clay Reservation.
At the Chippewa Hill 57 Rancheria or Colony, the population was over 400 in 1956. Today, it is less than 20. However, the United States has never claimed the Hill 57 Rancheria was a Rancheria, Reservation, or Colony. What has happened at White Clay Reservation is a warning to all non whites about the evil intentions of the white race. They have forced the Chippewa's of White Clay Reservation to relocate to white communities, when they should have thought of brotherhood. It is strong evidence that the whites do not want to live alongside Indian Nations and all other non white nations. If the whites want to promote brotherhood with their mighty Native American papas, they had better get brave and live alongside Indian Nations. Non white leaders of all non white nations, are aware of what is being played out, and you whites have got to wake up and think about how your actions are being viewed by all non white nations.
The 1862 Minnesota War
During the 1862 Minnesota Indian War, the Chippewa's commenced an exodus to the west and to the north. The war was fought to open up the Red River Valley of Manitoba, Minnesota, and North Dakota to white settlement. Ojibwa soldiers attacked that part of Red River Colony, between what is now Grand Forks, North Dakota and the Canadian border. They killed up to 1,000 whites. They also attacked whites living to the south but the real war was for control of that portion of Red River Colony in the United States. In August of 1862, Ojibwa leaders met with American representatives near what is now Fargo, North Dakota. During the negotiations, Ojibwa leaders abruptly ended the negotiations then left. Afterwards, they sent their soldiers out to attack the whites living in Red River Colony. The Ojibwa's had ruled the Red River Colony since the War of 1812. Chief Hole in the Day or ogima Bug-o-nay-gee-shig, was probably the principle Ojibwa leader during the conflict. However, chief Little Shell II (aka chief Big Bear) was also involved in the conflict. His son chief Little Shell III (aka chief Little Bear) told the whites in Lewistown, Montana, in December of 1913, that his father was the git-chi o-gi-ma of the Ojibwa Nation. However, chief Hole in the Day claimed he was the git-chi o-gi-ma of the Ojibwa Nation. Both may have been leaders of Ojibwa Districts however. Chief Hole in the Day, may have lived up to 1916. They claim he was assiassinated in 1867 but that may be false. The chief Hole in the Day who led the 1898 Rebellion at Leech Lake, was probably the famous chief Hole in the Day who was born between 1825 and 1830. He was about the same age as chief Little Shell II (aka chief Big Bear).
A series of battles were fought in North Dakota in 1863 and in 1864. They occurred directly west of the Fargo, North Dakota region. Fargo is about 30 to 35 miles west of the White Earth Reservation. One of the battles, which was the most deadly, was fought in what is now Dickey County, North Dakota which borders South Dakota. The Battle of Whitestone Hill was fought on September 3-5, 1863. Indian casualties were very heavy in the battle. Around 200 Chippewa's were killed and wounded and another 156 were captured. It wasn't the Lakota who were attacked. Father Belcourt clearly stated in an 1849 letter to Major Woods, that the Pembina Chippewa District extended 400 miles from north to south, from the Canadian border. It extended over 500 miles from east to west, from what is now the Minnesota-North Dakota border. These battles were fought in Chippewa Territory.
Three battles had been fought east of what is now the Bismarck, North Dakota region. On July 24, 1863, a battle was fought in what is now Kidder County, North Dakota. Around 4,000 Chippewa's were living in the area just east of the Bismarck region. The Battle of Big Mound was minor. Only a few casualties occurred. On July 26, 1863, another battle was fought in the same region which was indecisive. The Battle of Dead Buffalo Lake was a bit more deadly than the Battle of Big Mound. Chippewa soldiers were capable of defending themselves against the over 2,000 white soldiers who were armed with superior weapons. The Dead Buffalo Lake region was important to the Pembina Chippewa's. The lake is located 2.6 miles north of what is now Dawson, North Dakota and 48 miles east of Bismarck.
Many large and small lakes are located in that region which were once a part of ancient Lake Agassiz. Lake Agassiz was obviously once connected to the Great Lakes which were once a part of Hudson Bay. After the vast lake evaporated into what is left now, the Chippewa's from the Montana region forced their way east during either the 16th or 17th century, to support the Lake Superior Chippewa's in the wars against the white invaders. Ojibway authors from the 19th century, wrote about the Chippewa's forcing their way to the east, from the west (Montana).
On July 28, 1863, the Battle of Stony Lake was fought in what is now Burleigh County, North Dakota. It was another minor battle. However, the September 3-5, 1863 Battle of Whitestone Hill, drove the Chippewa's from southeastern North Dakota. They fled to the west into Montana. North of the Fargo region remained dangerous until after the 1863 Old Crossing Treaty was ratified in 1864.
These Chippewa's had originally lived in the area of Minnesota where the White Earth Reservation is and to the south of the same Reservation, and west and south of the Fargo region. Most may have fled but many remained. Those who fled reached Montana. Many also continued the exodus into Idaho, Oregon, and Washington. The Kootenai of the Flathead Reservation are probably the descendants of these Anishinabe people who commenced the 1863-1864 exodus. Some of the Kootenai still know they came from the Great Lakes region. Their canoes are obviously Chippewa.
On July 28-29, 1864, the United States sent a force of over 4,000 soldiers to a large Chippewa settlement in what is now Dunn County, North Dakota. A force of 6,000 to 7,000 Chippewa soldiers met and battled them. The United States was forced to withdraw from the battle. They may have inflicted heavy casualties on the Chippewa soldiers but could not force them to abandon their settlements. Chippewa casualties were between 31 and 150 killed and wounded. The United States was lured into another battle on August 7-9, 1864 in what is now Golden Valley County, North Dakota which borders Montana. The Chippewa soldiers used the rugged terrain to their advantage and using mainly bows and arrows, repeatedly attacked the white soldiers. Knowing that the Chippewa's held the advantage, it forced the white soldiers to retreat from the area. Western North Dakota remained under Chippewa control, as did the area just east of the Bismarck region. In 1866, the United States commenced to build Fort Buford and eventually established the 900 sq. mi. Fort Buford Military Reservation. Most was located in North Dakota, with the remainder located in Montana. Ojibwa soldiers attacked Fort Buford in 1867 and killed all American soldiers in the fort. Ojibwa casualties were very heavy however. The Americans built another fort however and named it Fort Buford again. By 1867, the war had moved into northern Montana, especially between Fort Benton and Helena. Ojibwa casualties were 10 to 20 times higher than that of the whites. The whites had repeating rifles, revolvers and the gatlin gun. Most Ojibwa soldiers used bows and arrows.
March 19-20, 1867 Treaties
On March 19 of 1867, the White Clay Reservation was set aside illegally. Next day (March 20, 1867), another Reservation was set aside in eastern South Dakota, for Chippeway's and some Lakotas. White historians will lie to you and claim it was set aside for the Santee. The Santee are really Pembina Chippeway's who absorbed many non Algonquin's amongst them. A link to a map of the Santee Pembina Chippeway's Reservation is here. It has the number 523 and a blue color. It is no coincidence the two treaties were signed within a 24 hour period. Both treaties are the same treaty.
Father Belcourt wrote a letter to Major Woods in 1849, describing the Pembina Chippewa District in the United States. It commences at the Canada-United States border, and extends 400 miles to the south. From the Red River, it extends over 500 miles to the west. On July 13 of 1869, the United States again resorted to infidelity. They eradicated the Santee Pembina Chippeway's Reservation in eastern South Dakota.
The Little Shell Pembina Chippewa Reservation
On March 3 of 1873, the United States set aside a Reservation for the Little Shell Pembina Turtle Mountain Chippeway's supposedly within the White Clay Reservation. It's proof of a Montana Chippewa connection to the Minnesota Chippewa's. Supposedly the Turtle Mountain Pembina Chippeway Reservation covered one township or 23,040 acres or 36 sq. mi. which is 6 miles by 6 miles. White Clay Reservation is 36 miles in length and 36 miles in width. If you see through the lines, that obviously represents the entire White Clay Reservation as being a Turtle Mountain Pembina Chippewa Reservation. However, the United States actually set this Reservation aside to relocate the Chippeway's from Montana and North Dakota.
There is too much controversy surrounding the Red River Valley. Click here to see the large area of land in North Dakota and South Dakota which was never ceded. It has no color or number. Click here to see the original Blackfeet Reservation. It covers much of Montana (area number 565 which has the pinkish color and the Little Shell Chippewa Blackfeet Districts of Wolf Point, Harlem, and Box Elder); and the areas where the numbers 574 (mauve color which includes the Dupuyer Little Shell Chippewa Blackfeet District); area number 399 (green color which includes Augusta, Great Falls, and Lewistown which are Little Shell Chippewa Blackfeet Districts); and area number 398 (the real Black Hills which has the blue color and the Helena District of the Little Shell Chippewa Blackfeet Reservation).
According to Lewis and Clark, the Black Hills are located just south of Great Falls, Montana. They wrote in their journals on June 2, 1805, that they were above (north) of the Black Hills. They were referring to the Highwood Mountains. On June 2, 1805, Lewis and Clark were at what is now Loma, Montana. On the Dakota map, the large area which was never ceded, connects the Little Shell Chippewa's Blackfeet Reservation to the Little Shell Pembina Chippewa Reservation of Minnesota. If the Pembina Chippeway's never ceded their land along the Red River of Minnesota and North Dakota, it means it is yet Chippewa land.
The Illegal 1889 Nelson Act
In 1889 (the 1889 Nelson Act), the government of the United States broke treaty promises and illegally opened up the Pembina Chippewa Reservation to white settlement. Instead of honorably negotiating with the leaders of the Pembina Chippewa Reservation, the United States instead illegally forced the individual Chippewa men of voting age to determine if the huge Pembina Chippewa Reservation should have land allotments and the surplus land sold to the whites. Since the Chippewa men knew they stood to gain financially, they voted to accept the deal. It was fraudulent which means the huge Pembina Chippewa Reservation is still intact. Most of the White Clay Reservation land allotments slipped from Indian ownership to non Indian ownership, after the huge Pembina Chippewa Reservation was stolen.
What is now the White Clay Reservation was Pem-bi-na and Pillager Chippewa land. As part of the corrupted dealings the whites indulged in, in the 1889 Nelson Act, they forced several thousand Chippewa's from Montana (not Minnesota) to relocate to the Little Shell Pembina Chippewa Reservation. According to a website, the 1920 census reported that of the Indian population of White Clay Reservation, which was 6,659, 4,856 were from the Mississippi Chippewa's (those Chippewa's who lived on both sides of the Mississippi River in Minnesota), 1,218 were Pillager Chippewa's, 472 were Little Shell Pembina (their population was obviously much larger), and 113 were from the Lake Superior Chippewa's (those Chippewa's who lived near the shores of Lake Superior). Most obviously came from Montana.
During those times, Chippewa leaders in Minnesota were actively sending their people up to Manitoba and Ontario. Bois Forte (Nett Lake) Reservation had an Indian population of 785 in 1901 but 464 in 2000. Grand Portage Reservation had an Indian population of 337 in 1901 but 322 in 2000. Bois Forte (Nett Lake), Fond du Lac, and Grand Portage Reservations were managed by the La Point Agency in Wisconsin during those times. Red Lake Reservation had an Indian population of 1,357 in 1902. Red Lake Reservation had an Indian population of 5,071 according to the 2000 census.
White Earth Agency reported an Indian population of 4,719 in 1902. Their specific groups and 1902 populations are as follows: White Earth Mississippi Chippewa (1,615); Gull Lake Mississippi Chippewa (340); Removal White Oak Point Mississippi Chippewa (87); Removal Mille Lac Mississippi Chippewa (323); Nonremoval Mille Lac Mississippi Chippewa (870); Removal Leech Lake Pillager Chippewa (297); Cass and Winnebigoshish Chippewa (56); Otter Tail Pillager Chippewa (717); Removal Fond du Lac Chippewa (100); Pembina Chippewa (314). By Nonremoval, it was stated that only 62 of the Mille Lac Chippewa's had relocated to White Clay. An act of Congress on May 27, 1902, eventually led to all the Mille Lacs Chippewa's (it was really Montana Ojibwa's led by chief Rocky Boy) relocating to White Clay. They were paid $40,000 for the relocation. As for the Gull Lake Mississippi and Otter Tail Pillager Chippewa's, a cover-up is in place. They are the Chippewa's (the Menominee and Winnebago) who were set aside large adjoining Reservations in the 1840s. Another Reservation called the Gull Lake Reservation, was later set aside for them after the United States illegally stole the large adjoining Reservations. It is situated adjacent to the old Menominee and Winnebago Reservations (the old Winnebago Reservation which was created on October 13, 1846). It has the number 453 on the map below. The Menominee and Winnebago (Pillager or Leech Lake Chippewa's) adjoining Reservations, are located on the same map below where the numbers 269 and 268 are. 268 is where the old Winnebago Reservation was located.
Leech Lake Agency which handled Red Lake Reservation affairs in 1902, reported an Indian population in 1901 of 3,346. Their specific groups and 1902 populations are as follows: Red Lake Reservation (1,304); Leech Lake Pillager Chippewa (848); Cass and Winnebigoshish Pillager Chippewa (435); and White Oak Point Mississippi Chippewa (630). There was a population decline of 129. The 1902 population was 3,217. Including the White Earth Leech Lake or Pillager population which includes the Gull Lake Mississippi and Otter Tail Pillager Chippewa's, the total Pillager Chippewa population was 3,410 in 1902. At White Clay Reservation, the Leech Lake or Pillager Chippewa's population was 1,497 in 1902. The population of Leech Lake Reservation in 1902 was 1,913. And the Little Shell or Turtle Mountain Pembina Chippewa's, must be included as being Leech Lake or Pillager Chippewa's. They know the Pillager Chippewa's were an advance Chippewa military force. However, they did not advance to the west. They advanced to the east from the Montana region, after learning the whites had invaded in the 16th century. The more eastern Pillager Chippewa's are the Abenaki, the Delaware or Lenni Lenape including the Powhatan and Lumbee, and the Seneca's. In the 18th century, they did advance to the west. As you know by now, the White Clay Reservation was set aside specifically for the Pillager Chippewa's who lived at the old Menominee and Winnebago adjoining Reservations. In 1873, the United States enlarged the Reservation to prevent war and to Deport the Montana Ojibwa's to the enlarged Reservation.
Though this information may not be useful to you, it will help you to understand the events which took place during the 1898 Rebellion. It was the Chippewa's from White Clay Reservation who joined the Chippewa's from Leech Lake Reservation, who fought in the 1898 Rebellion. Many of the Minnesota Ojibwa's who fought in the 1898 Rebellion, fled up to Ontario and Manitoba. Those who were captured, were probably relocated to the Navajo Reservation where land was added to the Navajo Reservation in 1900.
The 1898 Curtis & Nelson Acts
In October of 1898, ogima Bugonaygishig led a Chippewa Rebellion in northern Minnesota. This was probably a part of the 1898 Spanish-American War. What followed saved the Minnesota Chippewa Reservations. The Nelson Act of 1889, eradicated all Chippewa Reservations except the Red Lake Reservation and a tiny part of the White Clay Reservation. The United States waited until 1898 to eradicate the Reservation. In 1898, the United States passed the Curtis Act and Nelson Act. Ogima Bugonaygishig's War forced the United States to restore the Reservation. However, the huge Little Shell Pembina Chippewa Reservation was illegally broken up into the Chippewa Minnesota Reservations of today. More about the 1898 Rebellion is below.
The 1898 Rebellion
In October of 1898, ogima Bugonaygishig led a Chippewa Rebellion in northern Minnesota. This was probably a part of the 1898 Spanish-American War. What followed saved the Minnesota Chippewa Reservations. The 1898 Nelson Act and Curtis Act, eradicated all Chippewa Reservations, except the Red Lake Reservation and a tiny part of the White Earth Reservation. Leech Lake Reservation was actually eradicated. Ogima Bugonaygishig's War forced the United States to restore the Reservations. However, the huge Little Shell Pembina Chippewa Reservation was broken up into the Chippewa Minnesota Reservations of today.
After the 1898 Rebellion, a delegation of Leech Lake Chippewa's visited Washington D.C., to negotiate with the United States. Chippewa National Forest was established in 1908. However, this is according to historians, in 1900 a Minnesota woman named Maria Sanford, who was a member of the journal "Minnesota Federation of Womens Clubs," decided that something must be done about the 1889 Nelson Act to protect the remaining forests in northern Minnesota, especially on the Leech Lake Reservation. We can read between the lines! Only one reason exists for the establishment of Chippewa National Forest, and that was to prevent the war from continuing, after the October 5, 1898 Battle of Sugar Point ended.
What really occurred was negotiations were initiated between the ogimak from Leech Lake Reservation and representatives from the government of the United States, after the October 5, 1898 Battle of Sugar Point. Both sides didn't just walk off after the battle. There was a feeling of war in the atmosphere and the United States needed to calm the fear the white settlers were under, after news of the Chippewa victory over the Americans in the Battle of Sugar Point, was learned of by the whites of northern Minnesota.
The negotiations commenced in probably late 1898 and continued on for quite sometime. In all probability, the ogimak from Leech Lake Reservation and possibly nearby White Earth Reservation, and the government of the United States, reached an agreement by 1900, in which a new Leech Lake Reservation was created. Of course, the new Leech Lake Reservation is the Chippewa National Forest but could possibly include what is now the Paul Bunyan State Forest, Two Inlets State Forest, and the Itasca State Park. Leech Lake Reservation and White Earth Reservation, may actually be connected.
The Chippewa's of the Leech Lake Reservation have forgotten about the new Reservation which is known as Chippewa National Forest. That probably occurred a decade or two after Chippewa National Forest was established, or soon after the death of ogima Bugonaygishig. The United States probably bribed Anishinabe leaders but we can read between the lines! The creation of the Chippewa National Forest did do as all had wanted. Leech Lake and probably White Earth Reservation ogimak, were content with the agreement reached with the United States, and the fears of the white settlers diminished. Chief Hole in the Day and other Ojibwa leaders, refused to surrender and cede the vast Little Shell Pembina and Pillager Chippewa Reservation which means it's still intact.
Total size of the White Clay Reservation is 1,310 sq. mi. After the illicit land allotments, the non Indians owned 666,519 total acres. That can't be. There are too many lakes, hills or mountains, throughout the Reservation. In fact, almost half of the White Earth Reservation is covered by lakes and forests. There are at least 11 Chippewa settlements scattered across this Reservation. There are over 20,000 Anishinabe citizens of this Reservation which covers 832,000 acres or 336,698 hectares or 1,310 sq. mi. or 3,367 sq. km. Much of the Reservation is covered by a forest. I would estimate that about half of this Reservation is covered by a forest and lakes. The whites make up the majority of the population. However, according to the Reservations leaders, it is common for the Chippewa's to have multiple families sharing one housing unit which means the Reservations Indian population is higher.
The Remaining Forests
Back in the late 19th century, the white invader commenced to destroy the forests of northern Minnesota including at the White Clay Reservation. They were driven by greed. They eventually learned that most of White Clay Reservation is not suited for agriculture. Yearly precipitation caused the land to retain the water. It's obvious evidence that not very long ago all of northern Minnesota was covered by a huge lake.
The northeastern part of the Reservation (the area of four townships that was supposedly ceded), has lost most of the forest that thrived there. It has few lakes. The whites forced the defenceless Chippewa's to relocate. Rice Lake is the only major Chippewa settlement in that part of the Reservation. Those four townships in the extreme northeast part of White Clay Reservation, are still owned by the Reservation. The only reason they are lying is because Rice Lake connects White Earth Reservation to Leech Lake Reservation. Turtle Lake connects Red Lake Reservation to Leech Lake Reservation, which means all three Reservations are connected. From Rice Lake to the south, the remaining forests at White Clay Reservation, is thriving but the whites are using resorts and lodges to lure whites to that part of the Reservation. In the region just north and east and west of Pine Point, is a large area that has been cleared of the forest which thrived there. Many farms are now found there which require irrigation. Nearly all of those farms are owned by whites. There are a quite a few lakes in that region but only one large one is found. That is Big Rush Lake. A couple of much smaller lakes are located near the large lake as well as small areas of forests.
You must do constant surveillance throughout the remaining forests at White Clay Reservation. In fact, increase waterflow into the smaller waterways to assure the entire area keeps it's water. The whites will in the future drain the entire area so they can indulge in greed and selfishness. You may not know it but the entire area between Rice Lake, Pine Point, Buffalo Lake, the community of White Earth, to Sandhill Lake, back to Rice Lake, is under assault by greedy whites now. A huge area of that region is covered by a forest. It covers between 500 to 600 sq. mi. The United States will not honor treaty agreements. You know what that represents. They may claim certain areas are State wildlife parks or State forests but we know by treaty agreement it is Indian land. More lakes within the White Clay Reservation will dry up in the future. When that happens the whites will claim the land as theirs and establish farms. As mentioned, that land is Indian land and must be protected. Use google earth to find the lakes most likely to dry up.
The region between Rice Lake in Clearwater County to the region around Pine Point in Becker County, must be watched very carefully. There are many large lakes in that region including Bass Lake, Elbow Lake, Hoot Owl Lake, Ice Cracking Lake, Juggler Lake, Lake of the Valley, Little Bass Lake, Long Lost Lake, Lower Camp Lake, Many Point Lake, McKenzie Lake, Pickeral Lake, Round Lake, Upper Camp Lake, Waptus Lake and many other lakes which are being settled by the white invader now. And they are doing this without the permission of the citizens of White Clay Reservation. White Earth State Forest covers 160,000 acres but it covers very little of the region in Clearwater County which is far more pristine. That alone indicates the whites are after Reservation land. It ain't protected. The United States conspired decades ago to forcefully relocate the Chippewa's from White Clay Reservation to white communities. They are being driven by greed and the Seven Fires Prophecy or Cowardliness. The whites are not brave enough to live alongside Indian Nations. The United States is using both the White Clay Reservation police and White Clay game wardens, to prevent the citizens of White Clay Reservation from defending their land.
From just west of Pine Point, small hills or mountains, are found that extend west to Fish Lake. However, most of the land between both locations is covered by very small hills. Between Fish Lake and Strawberry Lake, the land is quite hilly or mountainous. From Strawberry Lake to just north of Lizard Lake, the small hills continue. Around Ice Cracking Lake, the hills or mountains, become more rugged and a bit higher. It is an excellent location to preserve for the Ojibwa Indians of White Earth Reservation, a very large area of land that is mountainous and has a very large number of lakes. Height of Land Lookout has an elevation of 2,009 feet above sea level. The mountains extend up to near the shores of Roy Lake. The mountains gradually get smaller as you approach Naytahwaush. North of Naytahwaush, the land becomes somewhat level yet the small hills continue to the north of Pine Bend. Land between Wolf Lake and Graveyard Lake, to the northern border, is covered by very small hills and lakes and wetlands. Between Long Lake (the Long Lake north of Roy Lake) and the White Earth Reservation community of Ebro, the land is generally level with few lakes.
From Roy Lake to Long Lake (the Long Lake on the eastern border), the land is hilly with the hills or mountains getting higher the further west one goes. Between Anderson Lake and Long Lost Lake, the land is hilly and rugged. Between Green Water Lake and just north of Waptus Lake, the land is very rugged and hilly, with many lakes. The region between Waptus Lake and Bass Lake, which is located 2.1 miles southeast of Naytahwaush, has the highest hills or mountains. Just before reaching the community of Rice Lake and Lower Rice Lake, the land becomes level and has fewer lakes. From just east of Lower Rice Lake, to just east of Pine Bend, the land is quite level. Around the community of White Earth, are several large lakes including Big Rat Lake, Birch Lake, Fishhook Lake, Jack Haw Lake, Little Rat Lake, odd looking Mission Lake with it's greenish color, Net Lake, and Strawberry Lake. And small hills surround the community as does a lush forest. Just to the east, there are found many lakes. Small hills continue south to the border near Birch Lake.
We know the leaders of all Reserves and Reservations are employees of Canada and the United States. Since they are paid by the Canadian and the United States governments, we know they will do what the whites want. To defend ourselves from their evil intentions, it is mandatory that we form an alternate government which does not receive money from the Canadian and United States governments. Within each village listed below, you must organize a new government which will manage the affairs of the people. Establish a council for a select (not elected) group of men and women of your choice. Then form a financial corporation (Little Shell Pembina Chippewa Reservation Financial Corporation) in which the citizens in each of the villages listed below can deposit their money.
To each community listed below, incorporate them so they are permitted by LSPCRFC which is a part of the Little Shell Pembina Chippewa Reservation (aka Turtle Mountain Reservation) law (not the law of the United States - the United States will not honor treaty agreements), to function as a village (city and town) of the Little Shell Pembina Chippewa Reservation. You are not to request permission from the United States or from the government of the White Clay Reservation. You must do this on your own. Create a community financial center (the house of someone you know is trustworthy) within each community listed below. If you feel it is too dangerous (probability of thiefs) open up a co-op bank account. Find Chippewa traditionalists. Do not allow anyone you know or who you suspect is in favor of genocide, or who sides with the whites. We are dealing with genocide. This is an extremely serious predicament. Each community will act on it's own, or open up their own co-op bank account, if they decide it's safer that way.
All citizens of all communities listed below, will deposit a percentage of their money into each community financial center. And do not dare to consult with the United States. They are sending a message to all non white nations that they could care less for Indian Nations in a time when that message is easily not ignored. The financial corporation can be kept private so there will be no need to have it done formally. Unless you opt to open up a co-op bank account. Then you must select one of the communities listed below to be the capital of the Little Shell Pembina Chippewa Reservation Financial Corporation. The financial corporation will be a simple joint savings unit which is identical to friends (a co-op) saving their money together to better their communities and lives. If anyone who lives within any of the communities listed below does not want to deposit a percentage of their money into the savings unit, they must be carefully watched. They can't be trusted. And we know many will not share their money. Use children to visit the residents to hand out LSPCRFC applications. Arm them with pepper spray to defend themselves from stray dogs. Children will be more appealing. If you feel it is still too dangerous for children to hand out LSPCRFC applications, have an adult place the LSPCRFC applications in mail boxes.
This financial corporation will be the Little Shell Pembina Chippewa Reservation (Fond Du Lac, Leech Lake, Nett Lake, Red Lake, and White Clay Reservations) government. The LSPCRFC will function to provide the Little Shell Pembina Chippewa Reservation with financing to establish new settlements, build and maintain new and old homes in old settlements, agriculture (greenhouse farming or hydroponic farming), health and education needs, fishing and hunting, and transportation needs and maintenance. Most financing must go to individuals to start agriculture, housing, and transportation enterprises. Electric bicycles and electric cars are mandatory. Purchase used bikes and cars then convert them into electric motor vehicles. You must encourage as many of your citizens to deposit as much of their money into the savings unit and to also apply for grants and loans so the LSPCRFC will be stocked with money.
Request for financial funding from non Indian sources, particularly individuals who are wealthy. Do it discreetly. And money earned from business ventures, must be deposited into the savings unit. In fact, nearly all money within each community savings unit will come from money generated by business ventures. If any problems develope with Reservation leaders including Reservation police, do not negotiate with them. They will do what the whites want. And the whites are in fact deliberately going the wrong way, or going down the wrong road. They are already intruding which means they do want to exterminate the Indian race and all other non whites. You must take it seriously.
There are a number of White Clay Reservation communities which are home to an Indian majority population. Visit the pages below to find out about these following communities:
Naytahwaush: it's almost located in the central part of the Reservation. Compared to the cdp of White Earth, Nay-tah-wash is better organized and may have a larger population. Naytahwaush is also a cdp. There is one large cluster of housing units.
White Earth: it's the capital of the Reservation. It is not well organized and has several clusters of housing units which are not connected. It has a larger population than Naytahwaush.
Pine Point: during the 1930s, Pine Point had a population of over 1,500. After the Indian Reorganization Act, the population of Pine Point declined dramatically. Many of the Ojibwa's who lived at Pine Point, either moved to white settlements or were paid to move to white settlements. It wasn't the only community of this Reservation to have a dramatic population decline.
Rice Lake: it's located northeast of Naytahwaush and originally had a larger population. Lower Rice Lake is located east and southeast of the community of Rice Lake. It got it's name from the lake or lakes nearby, noted for producing wild rice.
Riverland: it's a newer White Earth Reservation settlement. Reservation leaders appear to be confused. Mahnomen is less than a half a mile to the west. They must establish Indian communities far from white communities. Not next to them. The Indian race will not survive if Indian communities are established next to white communities.
Elbow Lake: it's located in the southern part of the Reservation, very near the northern shores of Elbow Lake. Reservation leaders must address the increasing white population at Elbow Lake. Too many whites are living along the shores of Elbow Lake. Now their moving to the Indian community of Elbow Lake.
West Pine Point: it's population is included with that of the community of Pine Point. It's about 1 mile west of Pine Point. West Pine Point is a distinct community however.
West Rice Lake: it's population is included with that of the community of Rice Lake. It's about 1 mile west of Rice Lake. West Rice Lake is a distinct community however.
West Naytahwaush: It's population is included with the population of the cdp of Naytahwaush. West Naytahwaush is located along the northern shores of North Twin Lake. It's about a half a mile west of Naytahwaush. It's a distinct community however.
South Strawberry Lake: It's a newer White Earth Reservation community. It's located along the southeastern shores of Strawberry Lake. An unpaved road under Reservation management, leads to the small community.
Ice Cracking Lake: it's located in the southern part of the Reservation, adjacent to the northern shores of Ice Cracking Lake. Housing units are located along both sides of La Doux Road.
Snyder Lake: it's located along the eastern shores of Snyder Lake. Naytahwaush is located several miles to the northeast. North Twin Lake and South Twin Lake, are located to the northeast.
Throughout the central and eastern part of the Reservation, are many areas where housing clusters are located. Nearly all do not have the appearance of a town or village. Non Indians have been allowed to build and live in cottages adjacent to the many large lakes within the boundaries of the Reservation. It is difficult to determine which of the areas have a majority Indian population but using google earth is helpful to learn if a specific area is a campground or resort. The list of communities below does not offer accurate demographic information about them. However, using google earth i have to the best of my knowledge, listed housing clusters which are likely predominantly Chippewa. Remember, the leaders of this Reservation do not calculate the population of this Reservation. It is the United States that calculates the population of this Reservation. That must change. Reservation leaders are not looking out for the best interests of the Indian People of this Reservation. Researching the populations of the townships of this Reservation, is probably the easiest way of finding out what the demographics are. Reservation leaders have allowed whites to settle along the shores of many of the Reservations lakes over the years.
Demographics of the White Clay Reservation
Covers 1,310 sq. mi.
Total Population: 9,562
Indian Population: 4,250
Hispanic: 99 - Hispanic population is corrupted as usual. Mexicans are predominantly descended from the Native Americans who lived in the eastern part of the United States. The whites have forced them to lose their tribal identities.
Most of the whites live in the western part of White Clay Reservation. Anishinabek live primarily in the central and eastern part of the Reservation. Average household size is 2.75 persons per household but in the areas where the Indians are the majority, the average household size is probably between 5.0 and 6.0 persons per household. Though most who know a great deal about White Clay Reservation, think almost all the Reservation is owned by individual non Indians, that is not the case and the ogimak of this Reservation are very aware of it. As mentioned earlier, much of the Reservation is covered by forests and lakes. That means the forests and lakes are really owned by the White Clay Reservation, even though the whites claim otherwise. So the total amount of land considered to be owned by the Reservation's ogimak, is probably between 400,000 and 500,000 acres.
Discrimination continues to be a problem at this Reservation, especially in the western part where the majority of the population is white. Originally, the United States wanted to place all Chippewa's in Minnesota (it was really Montana Ojibwa's), on this Reservation. Below is a list of the settlements on this Reservation. I have not included some settlements because they are predominantly non Indian. The Anishinabe names are in English style.
