Shoal Lake First Nation
Located where Pakwaw Lake, Saskatchewan is, is Shoal Lake First Nation. This Saulteaux Ojibway Reserve is actually within Misipawistik Ojibway Reserve. They are signatories of Treaty 5. They were listed being under Pas Band, specifically Pas Mountain. If you read Treaty 5 Text, you'll read about Saulteaux Ojibway's being listed under Pas Band including Pas Mountain yet they do not mention Shoal Lake. They only mention Pas Mountain which includes Red Earth also. They are closely related to those Saulteaux Ojibway's of Cumberland House, which is a few miles to their northeast. Population of Shoal Lake First Nation is 424 according to 2016's census. That does not include those living with whites. They have 118 dwellings with 115 lived in. Average household size is 3.7 persons per household. Some 415 speak Corrupted Ojibway which is what Lewis and Clark called Cree Language. Read an excerpt from Treaty 5 below. It will help you understand this somewhat!
We, the Band of the Saulteaux Tribe of Indians residing at the mouth of the Saskatchewan River, on both sides thereof, having had communication of the foregoing treaty, hereby, and in consideration of the provisions of the said treaty being extended to us, transfer, surrender and relinquish to Her Majesty the Queen, Her heirs and successors, to and for the use of the Government of Canada, all our right, title and privileges whatsoever, which we have or enjoy in the territory described in the said treaty, and every part thereof, to have and to hold to the use of Her Majesty the Queen and Her heirs and successors for ever. And Her Majesty agrees, through the said Commissioners, to assign a reserve of sufficient area to allow one hundred and sixty acres to each family of five, or in that proportion for larger or smaller families-such reserve to be laid off and surveyed next year on the south side of the River Saskatchewan.
Donate to our cause! Money donated will be used to create a government for "Our Selected Land" and other private ventures including agriculture, ect. We are the "Rocky Boy Tribe of Chippewa Indians of Montana." We have to follow chief Rocky Boy, if we are to follow prophesy!
