Papago Reservation

This Reservations past is very suspicious. Below is a map of Papago Reservation, it's demographics, links to it's communities and links to google earth photos of Sells which is their capital. It was established in 1916 and 1917. Original Papago Reservation covers 3.1 million acres or 4,844 sq. mi or 12,545 sq. km. It was set aside for a Comanche-Shoshone (they are Ojibway) People on January 14, 1916 and February 1, 1917. We have been told to follow evidence along a trail by prophesy. That's what were doing. Comanche-Shoshone is dialect of Mexican-Opata Language Family which is now known as Uto-Aztecan. We know Shoshone People are Ojibway. According to Ojibway author Andrew Blackbird, Ojibway Language was extensively spoken among Shoshone People.

Chief Rocky Boy & Land Additions

Papago Reservation

On January 14, 1902 chief Rocky Boy sent a letter to President Roosevelt telling him chief Rocky Boy was leader of landless Ojibway's in various locations in the United States in need of Reservations. They denied his request for new Reservations yet agreed to his proposal to allow his Ojibway Subjects to settle on unsurveyed land. Though this happened 14 years before Papago Reservation was created in 1916, it's related. Below is a news article from September 1914, that can help you understand this. This is why! In September of 1914, chief Rocky Boy sent a letter to President Wilson telling him his Ojibway Subjects would stay neutral in the European Conflict. He meant Mexico's Civil War. He actually may have sent the letter in 1913. They reported that Secretary of the Interior Lane, was negotiating with chief Rocky Boy for securing land for his landless Ojibway Subjects. We trace the creation of Papago Reservation to what chief Rocky Boy was doing in 1913 and 1914. American leaders were having all kinds of problems with chief Rocky Boy who was very defiant. He fled his Reservation created for him in 1909, in late 1910. It was located within Blackfeet Reservation at it's west end. What led to chief Rocky Boy leaving his Reservation, was news the United States established Glacier National Park in 1910. It's very obvious chief Rocky Boy's Reservation extended to what is now Glacier County, Montana's west boundary. An agreement was reached in 1914 to create new Reservations for chief Rocky Boy's Ojibway Subjects. Papago Reservation is one of them. Chief Rocky Boy kept his word and kept his Ojibway Subjects out of Mexico's Civil War.

September 10, 1968 Decision

On that date, Indian Claims Commission decided to further negotiate a Papago land claim in Arizona. Papago leaders claimed they held title to land from Santa Cruz River Valley (Patagonia, Rincon and Santa Catalina Mountain Ranges as their east boundary), to Gila Mountain Range and Tinajas Mountain Range almost adjacent to Yuma, Arizona. Gila River was their northern boundary. Santa Cruz River was their eastern boundary. Mexico was their southern boundary. Was there a vast Papago Reservation in that location in 1916-1917? Probably! In Montana, American leaders were Deporting Montana Ojibway's out of Montana. Some were Deported as far away as Puerto Rico (LuQuillo Forest Reserve was established on January 1, 1903) and Carib Reserve or Carib Territory on Dominica which was established or it's boundaries were announced on July 4, 1903. Many were relocated to Canada. Remember, in 1902 chief Rocky Boy received permission to settle on surveyed and unsurveyed land. In 1902, there were yet some 2,000 Papago's or Kickapoo Ojibway's living a nodamic life in southern Arizona. American leaders already knew by 1902 a war was going to happen in Mexico. They were going to eradicate Mexico's large Indian and black Reservations, in northern Mexico. They were located in Chihuahua, Coahuila, Durango, Sinaloa and Sonora. All States located in northern Mexico.

Nomadic (Kickapoo Ojibway's) Papago

On January 14, 1916 President Wilson created a 3.1 million acre Papago Reservation. On February 1, 1917 Tohono O'Odham Reservation was officially created. It is also home to a few Pima who lived around and at Pima San Xavier Reservation, which is almost adjacent to Tucson, Arizona. San Xavier Reservation was originally known as Papago Reservation. Gila Bend Reservation was created on December 12, 1882 and modified (supposedly reduced in size but at that time doing such meant risking Indians getting involved in Mexico's Civil War) or increased in size, by an executive order of June 17, 1909. Gila Bend Reservation and Gila River Reservation, are actually connected to Papago Reservation, as are Maricopa Akchin Reservation and San Xavier Reservation. All five Reservations were amalgamated and became what is now known as Papago Reservation.

Early Population

Before 1917, there was no Papago Reservation. An estimate of nomadic Papagos (they were really Kickapoo Ojibway's who were really Apaches who were kicked off Chiricahua Reservation in 1877), who lived in extreme southern Arizona, south of Tucson, to northern Mexico, from 1902, put their population at 2,046. Two decades earlier it was over 4,800. Most fled to Mexico. Many did settle down on Papago Reservation. By 1930, their population on Papago Reservation or Tohono O'odham Reservation, was 5,146. Their population had more than doubled in about 30 years.

Kickapoo Ojibway's

Within past 15 years, Kickapoo Ojibway's of southeastern Arizona, have become active in trying to become either State recognized or Federally recognized. They live between Douglas, Arizona and Wilcox, Arizona or very near their old Chiricahua Reservation. They number close to 200. So there are close to 200 Kickapoo Ojibway's who are continuing to cling to their Anishinabe Tribal identity in Arizona. And don't get to thinking Kickapoos are not Ojibway. According to 19th century Ojibway author Peter Jones, Kickapoos speak Ojibway as do Abenaki, Cree, Delaware, Menominee, Miami, Mohegan, Ottawa, Potawatomi, Sac or Sauk, and Shawnee. If they speak Ojibway, it means they are Ojibway.

Papago Reservation is a land rightfully classified as a desert. However, Sonoran Desert is a lush one. Papago Reservation is covered by a plentyful abundance of vegetation. Papago Reservations eastern region has sacred Baboquivari Mountains which includes Kitt Peak which has an elevation of 6,842 feet. Baboquivari Peak is higher, however, with an elevation of 7,730 feet. Baboquivari mountains are covered by a forest. Kitt Peak has their coldest winters with an average January high of 49 degrees. At lower elevations, winter highs tend to be in mid 60s to low 70s. Summers are hot and long with June, July, and August each with an average high of above 100 or near 100. Kitt Peak is much cooler during summer months, with it's hottest month averaging only 80 degrees for an average high temperature.
