Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
White Earth Reservation
Located in northwestern Minnesota, White Earth Reservation has a corrupted past. This Reservation was established after 1862s Minnesota Indian War ended. Below are links to White Earth Reservations communities and demographics. White Earth Reservation was added to Leech Lake Reservation on March 19, 1867 and remains a part of Leech Lake Reservation as does Red Lake Reservation. Chief Hole in the Day continued to honor treaty that established Leech Lake Reservation after 1898s rebellion. He refused to surrender which means we have to honor treaty. 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 Chippewa's named that areas soil color. White Earth Reservation is one of chief Rocky Boy's Reservations. More about chief Rocky Boy is below this Reservations demographics. By 1920, WCR Indian population was 6,659. By 1930, WCR Indian Population was 8,059. That increase in population can be attributed to forced Deportations Montana Ojibway's were sill going through in 1920s. On March 3, 1873 a treaty was signed between Pembina Chippewa's of Montana and North Dakota and United States, in which they agreed to relocate to White Earth Reservation. They were still Deporting Montana Ojibway's to White Earth Reservation, up to early 20th century.

Demographics of White Clay Reservation
Covers 1,308 sq. mi. or 837,120 acres or 3,388 sq. km or 338,770 hectares (it's really a part of Leech Lake Reservation which covers between 15,000 sq. mi. to 20,000 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.
Demographics of White Earth Reservations communities are not reliable. Most of those above communities are not organized or not incorporated as a city, town, village or cdp. They are clusters of housing units usually located along one road. Whites forced their way in to settle along certain lakes shores. They have no business doing such. Those lakes are owned by White Earth Reservation by treaty agreements.
Chief Rocky Boy
He rose to power in Montana probably during 1895 and 1896s Ojibway Deportations in Montana. In 1902, chief Rocky Boy sent a letter to President Roosevelt requesting for Reservations. Supposedly, they denied his requests yet we have evidence which indicate they lied. An article from a December 4, 1902 The Minneapolis Journal, details about a removal of Mille Lacs Ojibway's to White Earth Reservation. They were really Montana Ojibway's led by chief Rocky Boy who, as mentioned, sent a letter to President Roosevelt requesting for Reservations. Though, they lied, an article from a June 4, 1902 Butte Inter Mountain issue, details chief Rocky Boy sending out Ojibway scouts to find new Reservations. One was Coeur d'Alane Reservation in Idaho, and others Blackfeet and Flathead Reservations in Montana. And obviously White Earth Reservation in Minnesota. Below is an excerpt from that December 4, 1902 The Minneapolis Jounal:
BLACK SPOT IN WHITE
Gull Lake and Twin Lake Chippewas Have Foresworn All Labor and
Progress and Are Sadly Behind the Times—Mille Lacs Indians,
Soon to Be Moved, Will Have Allotments Near Them.
Special to The Journal.
White Earth Agency, Minn , Dec. 3 —
The fact that the Mille Lacs Indians are
to be removed to the White Earth Reser-
vation is likely to defer the opening of
the Reservation for some years to come.
They will want to take up their allotments
on the northeastern portion of the
Reservation in what are known as the
Twin Lakes and Gull Lakes settlements.
We have been told by Seven Fires Prophecy to find evidence along a trail. We know 100s of Montana Ojibway's led by chief Rocky Boy, were Deported to White Earth Reservation in late 1902 or early 1903. They settled where Naytahwaush is which is almost adjacent to North Twin Lakes shores, and also where Gull Lake is which is actually a series of lakes connected including Snider Lake, Egg Lake, Gull Lake, McCraney Lake and White Earth Lake. During those times Net Lake, Bad Boy Lake and Brown Lake may have been connected to Gull Lakes. White Earth CDP is almost adjacent to Brown Lakes western shores. Twin Lakes are located almost in White Earth Reservations center. Below is an excerpt from that June 4, 1902 Butte Inter Mountain Newspaper:

(SPECIAL TO INTERMOUNTAIN)
Anaconda. June 5. Since receiving word
from Washington that each of their num-
ber are entitled to 160 acres of land some-
where in this vast country, the band of
nomad Chippewas encamped near the city
of Anaconda have assumed an air of ac-
tivity to which they have been strangers
many long months.
The question which is now agitating
the members of the band is where they
shall settle down and till the soil, take up
the white man's burden and lose trace of
the noble aborigine.
The entire band is thoroughly imbued
with a desire to get away from their pres-
ent quarters and already Chief Rocky Boy
has dispatched runners to look over vari-
ous sections where they are to be allowed
No Suke, a half breed Chippewa, com-
monly known as "Jim" and who is a power
in the band is strongly in favor of the
band taking land in the vicinity of To-
bacco plains, or along St. Mary's river
in northwestern Montana.
The Best Place.
This Indian is familiar with the greater
portion of Idaho and Montana and of all
the country open for them to settle in he
considers that the most favorable.
However, there is some land in Idaho
that some favor and Indians are now ab-
sent looking over both strips. When they
return and report on the lands they have
seen the Chippewas will decide where
they want to go and will lose no time in-
striking their tepees and hitting the trail.
This will be good news to the residents
of Anaconda and vicinity and especially
to the ranchers living below in the Deer
To these ranchers the Indians have
proved a continual source of annoyance
because of their polluting the waters of
the creek with camp offal and the con-
sequent danger of disease.
So we have proof of Deportations of Montana Ojibway's commencing in late 1902. In 1901, chief Rocky Boy led some Montana Ojibway's to Coeur d'Alane Reservation which is located in northern Idaho. They sailed Flathead River to Coeur d'Alene Reservation. Other locations Montana Ojibway's were Deported to in 1902-1903, are Reservations in Washington State. They were not small Deportations but major Deportations that possibly involved 1,000s of Montana Ojibway's. We have to do more research to find those Reservations where those Montana Ojibway's led by chief Rocky Boy, were Deported to.
After land allotments were handed out, fraudulent actions commenced. Ojibway Traditionalists refused to accept land allotments because they knew it meant theft of their land. That is what happened. On many occasions, mixed bloods took land allotments and illegally sold them to whites or whites fraudulently took land allotments. Most of White Earth Reservation was and remains, covered by forests, lakes and wetlands. That land remains a part of this Reservation. Around 500,000 acres or more, is covered by forests, lakes and wetlands at this time. However, Reservation leaders do not consider that forested land, countless lakes and wetlands to be owned by White Earth Reservation. So White Earth Reservation covers 837,120 acres. Of that, non Indians own 652,364 acres. White Earth Reservation owns 71,357 acres. Federal land covers 45,720 acres. State land covers 65,160 acres. There is no way non Indians can own 652,364 acres because most of that land is covered by forests, lakes and wetlands. That forested land, countless lakes and wetlands must be protected by White Earth Reservations government. It belongs to White Earth Reservation. Unfortunately, leaders of White Earth Reservation will not do anything to save their land. They are a lost cause.
Soon after United States brought forth 1934s Indian Reorganization Act, a vote to either accept or reject it followed that same year. At White Clay Reservation, it's Indian population was 8,059. That was in either 1930 or 1934. During a course of a few decades, WER Indian population declined dramatically. In 2000 census, WER Indian population was 3,378. Other similar population declines happened at 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 Quinault (Quinaielt) Reservation of Washington. Population declines at those Reservations can be attributed to 1934s Indian Reorganization Act. White Clay Reservation experienced an obvious most dramatic of population declines. Indian population of White Clay Reservation, should be well over 30,000 today. Indian Reorganization Act of 1934, made certain it would not. In 1930s, only Navajo Reservation and Pine Ridge-Rosebud Reservation, had a larger Indian population than White Clay Reservation.
March 19-20, 1867 Treaties
On March 19, 1867 White Clay Reservation was set aside or added to Leech Lake Reservation. Next day (March 20, 1867), another Reservation was set aside in eastern South Dakota, for Chippeway's and some Lakota's. White historians will lie to you and claim it was set aside for Santee Dakota's. They are really Pembina Chippeway's who absorbed many non Algonquin's amongst them. A link to a map of Santee Pembina Chippeway's Reservation is here. It has number 523 and a blue color. It is no coincidence those two treaties were signed within a 24 hour period. Both treaties are same treaty.
Pembina Chippewa District
Father Belcourt wrote a letter to Major Woods in 1849, describing Pembina Chippewa District in United States. It commences at Canada's border with United States and extends 400 miles south to where Sioux Falls, South Dakota is. From Red River, it extends over 500 miles west or well into Montana and Wyoming. Dakota People will not accept that information because it means all Indian Reservations in South Dakota are Ojibway.
What is now White Clay Reservation was Pem-bi-na and Pillager Chippewa land. As part of corrupted dealings whites indulged in (1889s Nelson Act), they forced several thousand Chippewa's from Montana (not Minnesota) to relocate to White Earth Reservation. According to a website, 1920s census reported that WER Indian population was 6,659. Of that population, 4,856 were from Mississippi Chippewa's (those Chippewa's who lived on both sides of Mississippi River in Minnesota), 1,218 were Pillager Chippewa's, 472 were Pembina (their population was obviously much larger), and 113 were from Lake Superior Chippewa's (those Chippewa's who lived near the shores of Lake Superior). Most obviously came from Montana. That's why WER was added to Leech Lake Reservation in 1867. To force those Chippewa's who migrated west to Montana after 1862s Rebellion, to return to Minnesota.
