Pelican Lake First Nation
These Saulteaux Ojibway's are within Carlton Reserve. Canada has an obligation to fulfill. Historically they are known as Jackfish Lake Saulteaux Ojibway's. Canada named their district The Saulteaux Tribe of the Battlefords District because their agency was located at Battleford. However, they are also affiliated with Carlton Agency through Witchekan Lake and Big River. They were with those Ojibway Soldiers led by chief Big Bear, that fought 1885's Northwest Rebellion. Their on-Reserve population is 891 according to 2016's census. They have three locations where they live. Two have small villages we will name Pelican Lake Village and South Pelican Lake. Though there is no lake named Pelican Lake in that vicinity, we can't exclude their name. Most populated is Chitek Lake with a population of 821. Next is Pelican Lake (Sha-sha-gi Ga-mi) 191B with a population of 50. Then Pelican Lake 191A with a population of 20. They have 325 dwellings with 178 lived in. Average household size is 5.0 persons per household. Around 280 speak Corrupted Ojibway Language which is what Lewis and Clark called Cree Language. In 1876, chief Big Bear along with chief Rocky Boy and chief Sitting Bull, fled their native Montana for the Sweet Grass Hills of Montana (north of the Canada boundary) and Alberta's and Saskatchewan's Cypress Hills. Canadian negotiators were sent to Fort Carlton to negotiate a treaty with chief Big Bear about a Reserve. That treaty is Treaty 6.
