Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana
Ojibway Indians of Idaho
How, you may be asking, did the anishinabe indians of idaho get there? When the Iron Confederation was formed in the 1720s or the 1730s, the confederation quickly spread out towards the west. However, long before that migration, another Ojibwa migration happened. After the Anishinabe people reached what is now Idaho, they merged with Chippewa's already native to that region. In Idaho, the Anishinabe People are the Nez Perce. We know from prophecy as well as other historical records that the Amikwa Chippewa's were known as the Nez Perce. They were driven out of their original territory (it was located north of Lake Huron and east of Lake Superior to near Lake Nipissing) by the invading whites and their Indian allies, in the mid 17th century. Many fled to the northern shores of Lake Superior. Many followed the Seven Fires Prophecy and continued the exodus west into southern Manitoba then down to North Dakota and Montana. From there they migrated to Idaho, Washington, Oregon, and California. We know the Delaware are Chippewa. According to Peter Jones, the Delaware speak Chippewa. Read Jones 19th century book "History of the Ojebway Indians." It is a very important book. And we also know the Shoshone are Chippewa. According to Andrew Blackbirds 1887 book "History of the Ottawa and Chippewa Indians of Michigan" the Ojibwa Language was extensively spoken among the Shoshone people which means they are largely Ojibwa People.
