Ojibway Indians of Kansas
What is now the State of Kansas, has long had a Chippewa population. According to Lewis and Clark, the Chippewa People lived along the Headwaters of the Red River of the Mississippi River. That location is located in what is now the panhandle of Texas. So the Chippewa, who were frequently called the Chippeway during those times (1800-1900), lived along the Red River, or in Oklahoma and Texas, in 1804. Clark wrote his Estimate of the Eastern Indians while wintering at Fort Mandan in 1804-1805. His report about the Chipaway is about the Wichita People. Their territory extended from south of San Antonio to Kansas. So we know the Ojibway Indians were already living in Kansas long before the 1830s. That's decades before the 1838-1839 Exodus. By the time the Black River and Swan Creek Ojibways of Ohio and southern Michigan, migrated to Kansas and Oklahoma in 1838-1839, the Kansas region already had a large Anishinabe population. Today, there are still Anishinabe Indians of Kansas, but they are not recognized by the Federal goverment as being an Indian Nation. However, most of the Anishinabe People from Kansas, were forced to relocate to Oklahoma where they merged with the Cherokee of Oklahoma. They make up the majority of the Indian population of the Cherokee Nation of Oklahoma. They also have three other Reservations in Kansas. They are listed below. The Kickapoo, Potawatomi, and Sac or Sauk, speak Ojibway according to Peter Jones who was an Ojibwa author from the 19th century. Read his 19th century book "History of the Ojebway Indians" to learn the truth. The Chippewa Kansas Reservation located in Franklin County was eradicated.
