They were among those Ojibway's that lived inland with Eskimos, that were forced to relocate to communities located around Hudson Bay and James Bay and to Ojibway Reserves much further south, during the 1930's, 1940's and 1950's. This community is an Ojibway community. Read Treaty 5 text. We also know that Northern Ojibway Territory extended to Nelson River and much further north. According 1832's Edinburgh Encyclopedia, Ojibway People gave rise to Chipewyan People, Copper People, Cree People and Dogrib People. Staff at HBC named Northern Ojibway People "Nakawawuck or Nekawawuck and Lake Indians." Andrew Graham wrote in 1771, that Ojibway's forced their way to York Fort (aka York Factory) in 1762 or during Pontiac's War. They were there to prevent white expansion inland. They did trade now and then according to Andrew Graham who also wrote that Northern Ojibway People commanded all lakes (thus why they were named Lake Indians) from York Fort Rivers (Nelson River and Hayes River), well inland to Lake Winnipeg.
