Rocky Boy's Reservation
Rocky Boy's Reservation provides a home for about 2,500 members of the Chippewa-Cree tribe. The name "Rocky Boy" was derived from the name of the last free roaming leader of a band of Chippewa Indians.
Little Shell Band of Chippewa
This band of the Chippewa Tribe is a state recognized tribe without a designated reservation. There are over 4,000 enrolled members within the state, many of which live in Great Falls, Montana and the surrounding area. Little Shell and his followers were excluded from the Turtle Mountain rolls. Little Shell and Red Thunder protested this action. Many of the people who were removed from the rolls, moved to Montana where they hand hunted buffalo. As time went by, the followers of Chief Little Shell became a group of Chippewa with out a home. They were known eventually as "landless Indians."
Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation
The Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation is home to the Turtle Mountain Band of Chippewa Indians and the Pembina Band of Chippewa Indians. It is located in North Dakota.
