Lac du Flambeau Reservation

It's corruption is very evident and needs more investigations. Below is a map of Lac du Flambeau Reservation (it has different boundaries) and links to google earth photos of Indian Village. Two treaties supposedly created Lac du Flambeau Reservation. 1842's Treaty and 1854's Treaty. It's 1854's Treaty that created Lac du Flambeau Reservation. On October 4, 1842 Ojibway leaders at Ojibway Nations capital at what is now Great Falls, Montana, agreed to cede land in Michigan and Wisconsin. They referred to these Ojibway's as Chippewa's of the Mississippi and Lake Superior. Mississippi Rivers Headwaters are located in southwest Montana near where Wisdom, Montana is located. Though a land cession was agreed upon, they had yet to create Reservations. That happened on September 30, 1854. A Reservation of 3 Townships (probably 9 townships - Ojibway leaders of those times considered 1 mile to be 1 league or 3 miles) was created and is known as Lac du Flambeau Reservation or Was-swa Gan-ti-gos Ga-mi Ish-kon-i-gan or Ga-mi Was-swa-gan-ti-gos Ish-kon-i-gan (translated it means Torch-stick Lake Reservation and Lake Torch-stick Reservation - they did not name it Torch-handle Lake) in Ojibway. Ojibway's often fished lakes in that region at night time. During mid or late 16th century, chief Sa-gi-ma or Sag-ga-ma, initiated Ojibway expansions in the Great Lakes region. After Ojibway leaders in Montana learned the people mentioned in prophesy had commenced to invade, they sent 10,000's of Ojibway Soldiers and their families east. They first settled on islands then expanded inland. They wanted alliances with the native tribes of the Great Lakes region yet too often they were ignored or in some cases attacked. If attacked, they were extremely brutal to those that did not heed prophesy. They were known to either drive their enemies away or exterminate them for infidelity. Northern Wisconsin was settled by Ojibway Settlers sometime in the mid or late 16th century. It's thought Ojibway People settled the Lake Flambeau region around 1745. However, that information could possibly refer to Christian Missionaries or white trade posts being established in Lake Flambeau region with Ojibway consent.

Lac du Flambeau Reservation of Wisconsin may have a land area of 200,000 acres to over 300,000 acres. Scroll down for futher information. Below is information to help you learn about this. It's very corrupt. Most important being total land allotments to individual Ojibway's. In LDFR's case, it's 339. Read it carefully! First claims there are 339 land allotments, while the second claims 600 land allotments. If you don't know what "Fee Land and Trust Land" represent, it deals with taxes to some degree. As for "Trust Land Allotments" they are non taxable. As for "Fee Land Allotments" they are subject to City, County, State and Federal taxes. Much of LDFR's "Fee Land" is owned by whites. However, Lac du Flambeau Reservation has jurisdiction over "Fee Land Allotments" or owns them. LDFR was never opened to white settlement.

LDFR's Ojibway Population in 1920: 781

Number Allotted Land: 339

Trust Land Allotments: 305

Fee Land Allotments: 34

Unallotted: 442

In 1920, Lac du Flambeau Reservation's Ojibway population was 781. LDFR's Ojibway population has not increased much in 100 years. 2010's census reported LDFR's Ojibway population at 2,196. Reason for LDFR's Ojibway population increase being a bit higher compared to other Ojibway Reservations, is the CDP of Lac du Flambeau. Nearly all of LDFR is within Lac du Flambeau CDP. Whites are forcing them to assimilate. In 1920, 339 LDFR Ojibway's had land allotments. Most were "Trust Land" allotments. LDFR's remaining Ojibway population in 1920 was 442. None of them had land allotments. LDFR leaders are not looking out for the best interests of Ojibway People.

LDFR's Number of Allotments in 1920: 600

Allotted Acres: 45,756

Unallotted Acres: 24,424

Total Acres: 70,180

American leaders tried to relocate Ojibway's from Fond Du Lac Reservation, Lac Courte Oreilles Reservation and Lac Du Flambeau Reservation on May 29, 1872, to Bad River Reservation. They needed their consent to sell Fond Du Lac Reservation, Lac du Flambeau Reservation and also Lac Courte Oreilles Reservation. They refused however. They really demanded that they stay at those Reservations. They didn't want them following prophesy and migrating west. Lac du Flambeau Reservation was eventually more violated than Lac Courte Oreilles. They commenced to log this Reservation in 1885 and that enraged Ojibway leaders.

Land Addition

On June 5, 1900 Flambeau Township which became Lac du Flambeau CDP, was created and that is probable evidence chief Rocky Boy was negotiating on behalf of this Reservation. Though it's not proof Lac du Flambeau Reservation is one of chief Rocky Boy's Reservations, it can't be excluded. Land was added to Flambeau Township that extended to Wisconsin's border with Michigan. It must be considered a land addition to Lac du Flambeau Reservation for chief Rocky Boy's Ojibway Subjects. Why? Lac du Flambeau Reservation was within Flambeau Township! Whites control Lac du Flambeau Reservation through Lac du Flambeau Town. We don't want Lac du Flambeau Town within this Reservation. Why? Whites make up nearly 40% of Lac du Flambeau Reservations population because Lac du Flambeau Town is located within LDFR. Reservation boundaries must be as depicted on Lac du Flambeau Reservations map below. President Eisehower visited Lac du Flambeau Reservation in 1965. He was given the Ojibway name Gi-noo Wi Gi-shig. It may mean Eagle from Sky or Eagle of the Sky. In Ojibway, their word for "Day and Sky" is Gi-shig.

According to 2010's census, Lac du Flambeau Town has a population of 3,441. Whites make up 34.1% of it's population. Ojibway People make up 63.8% of it's population or 2,196. We need to locate where Ojibway People live because we can't get proper demographics for Lac du Flambeau Reservation. So you can obviously comprehend that this Reservation is being corrupted. Chief Rocky Boy negotiated with American leaders about Relocating his landless Ojibway Subjects to Lac du Flambeau Reservation and the land added to Flambeau Township was for chief Rocky Boy's landless Ojibway Subjects. Chief Rocky Boy requested for amnesty in 1899 and in 1901 received amnesty. On January 14, 1902 chief Rocky Boy sent a letter to President Roosevelt telling him that chief Rocky Boy was leader of landless Ojibway's in various locations throughout the United States in need of Reservations. They denied his request for new Reservations yet accepted his proposal to allow his Ojibway Subjects to settle on unsurveyed land. They also added land to existing Reservations for chief Rocky Boy's Ojibway Subjects. Lac du Flambeau Reservation is one of them.
