Ojibway Indians of Idaho


How, you may be asking, did Ojibway Indians of Idaho get there? Read Seven Fires Prophecy! After Ojibway Indians reached what is now Idaho, they merged with Chippewa's already native to that region. In Idaho, the Anishinabe People are the Nez Perce and Shoshone. 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. In June or early July 1901, chief Rocky Boy was first mentioned in newspapers. He went before a judge in Montana asking for passports to enter Idaho. In August 1901, it was reported in newspapers that 100 Ojibway Indians of Idaho, were living at Ross Fork or what is now Fort Hall Reservation. Chief Rocky Boy led them there and they numbered well over 100. They were Ojibway's forced to leave the ceded north portion of Crow Reservation.
