Winnebago Indians


The Indian people known as the Winnebago Tribe, originally lived in the Wisconsin region and are Anishinabe. According to their own accounts, they originally lived near Lake Superior or possibly north of Lake Superior. After the invading whites and their Indian allies, launched massive military campaigns against the Algonquians in the first half of the 17th century, it forced these Chippewa's to retreat west of Lake Michigan. Following prophecy, many continued the westward exodus. They eventually migrated into the region between South Dakota-Minnesota and Oklahoma. These groups of Winnebago Chippewa's became known as the Iowa, Missouria, and Otoe. They are the southern most Chippewa's of Minnesota. In fact, they are probably the Cheyenne who remained in southern MInnesota.



After the whites signed treaties with the Winnebago Indians, the Winnebago were granted their present Reservations but not without the greedy whites breaking treaty promises first. On October 13, 1846, a large Winnebago Chippewa Reservation was created for them in Minnesota. On the Minnesota Indian land cession map below, it has the number 268. However, the United States refused to honor treaty and eradicated the large Reservation on February 27, 1855. Five days earlier, on February 22, 1855, they set aside a much smaller Winnebago Chippewa Reservation adjacent to the old larger Reservation. It was known as Gull Lake Reservation. Brainerd, Minnesota is located on the old Chippewa Gull Lake Reservations eastside. On the same map below, it has the number 453. On May 7, 1864, the United States again refused to honor treaty and eradicated the Winnebago Chippewa's Gull Lake Reservation. In 1867, they were relocated to the Chippewa's White Earth Reservation.



On September 15, 1832, the Winnebago Chippewa's signed treaty which ceded land and created a large Reservation for them known as the Neutral Ground Reservation. It was located in extreme northeastern Iowa and southeastern Minnesota. However, the United States refused to honor treaty and eradicated the large Reservation on October 13, 1846, or the same date they created the large Winnebago Chippewa Reservation in west central Minnesota. Maps of the Neutral Ground Reservation are below. It has the number 267. On February 27, 1855, another smaller Reservation was set aside for the Winnebago Chippewas in extreme southern Minnesota. It was known as the Blue Earth Reservation. It was located in Blue Earth County, Minnesota. Don't be fooled by the February 27, 1855 Treaty. As mentioned, the much smaller Chippewa Gull Lake Reservation adjacent to the old Winnebago Chippewa Reservation, was set aside on February 22, 1855. A map of the Winnebago Chippewa's Blue Earth Reservation is below. It has the numbers 416 and 439. The western part of the Blue Earth Reservation was eradicated on April 15, 1859. On February 21, 1863, the United States again refused to honor treaty and eradicated the Blue Earth Reservation.



On February 21, 1863, the United States created another Reservation for the Winnebago Chippewa's. It is located in South Dakota. It is known as the Crow Creek-Lower Brule Reservation. Don't be fooled by the treaty. The Winnebago Chippewa's never left the Reservations. They are a part of the Great Sioux Reservation. I can include all of the Reservations created from the Great Sioux Reservation but won't. It will enrage the brainwashed Indians living on those Reservations. On March 8, 1865, another Winnebago Chippewa Reservation was created in Nebraska. It is adjacent to the Omaha Reservation.
