Ojibway Indians of British Columbia


When we deal with the Anishinabe Indians of British Columbia, we must first focus on the Hudson Hope Band and the Shuswap including the Chilcotin. The Ojibway People of British Columbia, who are better known as the Saulteau or Saulteaux, are actually an admixture of native Chippewa Indians and those who later followed prophecy and migrated to northern British Columbia from the southeast. We can trace the origins of those Saulteau who migrated to northern British Columbia, back to the mid 17th century. After the invading whites and their Indian allies drove the Amikwa Chippewa's from their homeland between the northern shores of Lake Huron, eastern shores of Lake Superior, and south of Lake Nipissing, they fled to a location north of Lake Superior. Many continued following prophecy and migrated to southern Manitoba where a decision was made to send a large group to the northwest, while another large group was sent to the southwest into North Dakota then Montana, Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and California. Our attention is on the large group that migrated northwest. As mentioned, the Amikwa Chippewa's were driven from their homeland in the mid 17th century. In Ojibway, Amikwa means Beavers. Remember that! The Beaver Tribe are the Amikwa Ojibwa's. Included as being Beaver, are the Kaska, Tagish, Tahltan and Sekani. The Beaver are known as the Dane-za.





They had reached British Columbia by the mid or late 18th century and merged with the native Anishinabek living there. Though they lived throughout British Columbia, we have to focus on northern British Columbia, especially northeastern British Columbia. They continued to live there until the invading whites opted to negotiate for land cessions instead of trade. Treaty 8 was negotiated between 1898 and 1914. It wasn't until 1914 that the Saulteau controlled Hudson Hope Band, agreed to be included with Treaty 8. Canadian negotiators explained to Saulteau leaders that all of Treaty 8 land in British Columbia is an Indian Reserve. Among the first Indians to sign Treaty 8 were the Beaver Indians. Remember i told you to remember the Amikwa Chippewa's because their name (Amikwa) in Ojibway means Beavers. We have to include the Beaver Indians as being Chippewa. Don't be fooled by the whites is clearly written in the Seven Fires Prophecy. As mentioned, the Saulteau controlled Hudson Hope Band, agreed to be included with Treaty 8. Below is a list of the Anishinabe Indians communities in British Columbia.



We have to include certain other Indian entities just west and south of Treaty 8 land area in British Columbia. We know the Saulteau are involved (are claiming the same land areas) in the Comprehensive Land Claim Agreements but Canada refuses to cooperate with the Saulteau. We also know that Canada is using money to corrupt the Saulteau of British Columbia. An example are the Kelly Lake Saulteau who broke off from the Saulteau of British Columbia. Kelly Lake actually placed a roadblockade to prevent the Saulteau from going to the Kelly Lake region which is south of Dawson Creek, British Columbia, to fish and hunt. It was reported in 2002, that Kelly Lake was allowed to become a separate band by the Saulteau. Another one is McLeod Lake which signed an adhesion to Treaty 8 in 2000. And the Kaska are another problem. Their territory is obviously claimed by the Saulteau. For some reason Canada signed Treaty 8 over 100 years ago but are now getting around to land in northwestern British Columbia adjacent to the western border of Treaty 8 land in British Columbia. Others that are being disputed by the Saulteau are the Lheidli T'enneh Treaty and the Wet'suwet'en Carrier land claim.
