Ojibway Indians of Alberta


In Alberta, a migration of Anishinabe People east, commenced after they heard about those people mentioned in Seven Fires Prophecy, invading in early 16th century. They are known as Stoney Ojibwa's in Alberta, as well as Montana. In Ojibway, they named themselves "As-sin-na Bwaan" which means "Stoney (Assina) Ojibwa's or just Bwaas (Bwaan). Ojibway Indians of Alberta did not live east in 1492. About 1,000 years earlier, they followed prophecy and migrated west to Alberta, Montana, Wyoming and on to Pacific Oceans Coastline. Most Ojibway Indians of Alberta, reject being Ojibway. They are too scared to follow prophecy. Those that are currently identifying as being Ojibway are listed below. I included others as a result of historical information found online. Below is a list of Ojibway Indians of Alberta. Only a few are actually claiming to be Ojibway. We know Chipewyan (all Athabascan People) are Ojibway, as are Cree People. They won't accept it however. Montana Reserve has strong ties to chief Rocky Boy. Robert Smallboy was either his son or grandson. Chief Alexis Piche (it's really bi-zhiw which means bobcat and lynx in Ojibway) Bobtail may have been chief Rocky Boy's father. More investigating must be followed. Bizhiw is pronounced "be-zhoo." It is possibly the origins of the Ojibway "boo-zhoo" greetings! Chief Rocky Boy's Ojibway surname is probably "Bi-zhiw." It's evidence he was from Ojibway Nations Military and Police Totem. They used "predator names" to name themselves. The name of Ojibway Nations Military and Police Totem is Bear Totem or No-ka or Ma-ka! Probably "Ma-ka." It's derived from the Ojibway word for bear which is either Mak-wa or Mak!
