Ojibway Indians of Texas
We know from Lewis and Clarks Journals, that the Anishinaabe lived in Texas before 1805. According to Clark, who wrote his Estimate of the Eastern Indians during the winter of 1804-1805, the Chippeway (Pania or Wichita) lived along the Red River of the Mississippi River. Their principle location was the headwaters of the Red River of the Mississippi. That location is in the Texas Panhandle region. That be Hardeman County, Texas and Harmon County, Oklahoma. French explorer Jean Baptiste de La Harpe, found a Wichita (Tawakoni) village in 1719, in what is now Muskogee County, Oklahoma. Other Wichita People (the Waco) lived further south where San Antonio, Texas is. In fact, they lived south of San Antonio and north to where Dallas-Fort Worth are. Further to the north, the Wichita (the Taovaya) lived in Kansas. They were possibly first met by Francisco Vazquez de Coronado in 1541. Coronado wrote they lived in what is now the Lindsborg, Kansas region. Franklin County, Kansas is 100 miles to the east. We know the Ojibway Indians were living in that region (Franklin County, Kansas) before 1541. The territory of the Wichita Chippewa Indians extended from Nebraska, to northeastern Mexico, in 1541. Today, the Ojibwe have one Reservation in Texas. It is located 7.5 miles southeast of Eagle Pass, Texas. Their population according to the 2011 census is 351. They are known as the Kickapoo Chippewa's. They think they are not Anishinabe yet historical evidence proves they are Ojibwa. They speak Anishinabe according to the 19th century Ojibwa author Peter Jones.
