Ojibway Indians of Manitoba


It was after anishinabe ogimak became aware of the seven fires prophecy around 1,000 years ago, when the Ojibway commenced to follow the prophecy and invade towards the west. Their journey took them to california, oregon, washington, british columbia, alaska, and then Siberia. They also invaded the central and northern portions of alberta, saskatchewan, manitoba, the northwest territories, and the yukon at least 1,000 years ago. Then after the whites invaded in the 16th century, another anishinabe westward invasion commenced from out of northwestern Ontario and northern Minnesota, at around the mid 1730s. Below is a list of the ojibway indians of manitoba. After the whites brought the Manitoba region under their control, they set aside land for the Ojibways and Nakota, and then forced many of the Ojibways of Manitoba to lose their identity. Many, if not all, of the Ojibways of northern Manitoba, live in areas where few whites live and probably have the belief that their ancestors who signed treaties with Canada, did so with the belief that they were not ceding their land. They are correct. The whites knew their land was not suited for agriculture so they set aside huge areas for the Ojibways to occupy, specifically for fishing, hunting and trapping. The Ojibways still consider that land theirs. The list below is all Ojibways, though the whites claim that Cree people live there. The whites are forcing the Ojibways to lose their identity.
