The Reservation

(p.47) Chapter Three The Reservation
Claiming Turtle Mountain's Constitution

Keith Richotte Jr.

University of North Carolina Press

Chapter three describes the establishment of the reservation and how that process laid a foundation for first the claim and eventually the constitution. The reservation was established, after much consternation on the northern prairie, through various Executive Orders. Considered temporary and politically expedient from the federal government’s perspective, the Executive Orders were unsatisfactory to everyone in the region. Settlers wanted the Plains Ojibwe and Métis completely removed from the territory. The Plains Ojibwe and Métis wanted a larger reservation and acknowledgement of ownership over land that they had not ceded. The reservation was the first major step on the road to a claim against the federal government.
