This Chip-ah-wan or Chipewyan Nation is located primarily in Northwest Territories yet is also partially in northeastern Alberta and Nunavut. Akaitcho Territory covers 480,000 sq. km. or 185,329 sq. mi. Population of Akaitcho Territory is 5,016. Below is a list of Akaitcho Territory settlements and a map of Akaitcho Territory. Chipewyan People live in all of Nunavut. Their leaders are ignoring Ojibway land in Nunavut. Instead their concentration is on Treaty 8 land. They are also not united. They are allowing individual communities to act on their own. We know they are Ojibway and will not accept any agreement that takes land from Akaitcho Territory. We are also claiming land in Nunavut that extends to Hudson Bay. Either Ojibway and Canadian leaders reached an agreement about Ojibway land in Nunavut, when Treaty 5 adhesions were signed or when Treaty 8, Treaty 10 and Treaty 11 were signed. Reading old 19th century books has been very helpful in learning exactly who Athabascan People are. According to 1832's Edinburgh Encyclopedia, Athabascan People are Algonquin. To be specific, they are Lenni Lenape who are really Ojibway. Those old 19th century books, especially before 1850, are far more reliable than later books written about Native Americans. Lenni Lenape are also known as Delaware's. They originally lived out west where Missouri River probably commences in Montana. An event happened which forced them to migrate east to Atlantic Oceans Coastline. That was an invasion of whites. As mentioned, Lenni Lenape people are really Ojibway. Lenni Lenape has two meanings. It does not mean "Original Man." It also does not mean "Spontaneous Man." Lenni means "Man." Lenape means "Male." Take away "Le" from both words and it's "En-ni" and "Na-pe." Ojibway word for man is "I-ni-ni" and their word for male is "Na-be." Translated Lenni Lenape means "Man - Male." Delaware People spoke Ojibway. We know that from 19th century Ojibway authors and white authors. Click here to read Edinburgh Encyclopedia. If you see "Page 33" click on it! It details that Ojibway People gave rise to Chipewyan People, Copper People, Cree People (Hudson Bay Company staff named them Beaver Indians who are Athabascan) and Dogrib People. All are Chipewyan. They are also known as Hare, Sahtu and Slavey. These Ojibway's forced their way up to Beaufort Sea from a location near Lake Superior. They were sent there to reinforce Ojibway People native to that region or along Beaufort Sea's southern coast and around Hudson Bay's north coast. Whites were bringing many Eskimo People to McKenzie River's Delta and east to Hudson Bay, to fight Ojibway People for control of Northwest Passage. Some Ojibway's from their Hunter Totem or Gaossed Dodim, were lured to HBC trade posts to trade. They became traitors. HBC staff commenced to calling them Beaver Indians as a result of their favorite trade item being beaver pelts. They also named them Keskatchewan Indians. However, they are better known as Cree. They have a few First Nations in Alberta and British Columbia. There are no Cree First Nations in Saskatchewan, Manitoba, Ontario, Quebec and Labrador. Ojibway Soldiers (among them were Chipewyan's) drove them west to Alberta and British Columbia. Their (Dehcho or Hare and Sahtu and North Slavey and South Slavey, Chipewyan, Copper and Dogrib) population is around 40,000. They all must be considered Chipewyan. Gwich'in People must also be included as Chipewyan. We do not recognize Salt River and Smith's Landing as being independent. They refused to act as a united people. Therefore, we consider that part of Akaitcho Territory located in Alberta, as yet a part of Akaitcho Territory. We also consider Wood Buffalo National Park to be within Akaitcho Territory. Chief Big Bear instructed many of his Ojibway Soldiers to find as many buffalo as they could in southern Alberta and southern Saskatchewan, to bring them far north to make certain they survived. Chipewyan leaders must keep all of Akaitcho Territory. They must not cede any of their land. If they do and it leaves them with less than 259,000 sq. km. or 100,000 sq. miles and is not in compact form, we will make certain those Chipewyan leaders responsible, will not live again. That's law.
