There are several groups of Arapaho People. They include a Northern Arapaho, Southern Arapaho and Gros Ventre. White historians are trying to fool you into accepting a deception of their doing, that the Gros Ventre of Montana and the Gros Ventre of North Dakota, are different people. That is incorrect. Both the Gros Ventre of Montana and the Gros Ventre of North Dakota, are the same people. When Lewis and Clark stayed at a Mandan village during the winter of 1804-1805, several hundred Ojibway's were there. In Oklahoma, the Arapaho are known as the Swan Creek and Black River Chippewa's, as are the Cheyenne. There is a reason why there are Swan Creek and Black River Chippewa's in Montana, Kansas, Oklahoma, Michigan and Ontario. You only need to read Lewis and Clark's journals to comprehend. Below is an excerpt from William Clark's Estimate of the Eastern Indians he wrote during his stay at the Mandan village during the winter of 1804-1805:

These people have no intercourse with the inhabitants of the Illinois; the information, therefore, which I have been enabled to obtain, with respect to them, is very imperfect. They were formerly known by the name of the White Panias, and are of the same family with the Panias of the river Platte. They are said to be a well disposed people, and inhabit a very fertile country; certain it is that they enjoy a delightful climate.



Ed: Here end both the printed statistical view and Clark's manuscript table in its full coverage. Number 53 might also be added to this category. In the additional space at the foot of the table, Clark added the following information on the Southern tribes.



Clark first wrote of northern tribes. In fact, from 1 to 53, are the northern tribes Clark wrote of. Those southern tribes Clark wrote of are from 54 to 72. Clark included 53 as being a southern tribe. You notice how Clark described them. He named them Chippaway and Pania Pickey. They are two tribes. Not one but two tribes. Chippaway is another pronunciation of Chippewa. The Pania Pickey are the Pawnee Tribe or as we should really name them Wichita. Why? They lived from Kansas to Texas. They also lived in Montana. Remember, they are two tribes. Historically, they are known as the Northern Cheyenne and Northern Arapaho and Southern Cheyenne and Southern Arapaho. Number 51 are the Blackfoot People of Montana. Number 52 are the Flathead Tribe of Montana. That means they had to have lived in Montana because number 53 was included with the first 53 tribes as well as with the 54 to 72 tribes or the southern Tribes.



Letter "c" represents nick names obtained from Canadian traders. Letter "d" represents their language. Letter "e" represents the number of their villages. Letter "g" represents the number of their soldiers. Letter "h" represents their population. Letter "o" represents the location where it would be advantageous to form the principal establishment in order to supply the several nations with merchandize. That location is Three Forks, Montana and Three Forks Harbor, Oklahoma which is adjacent to Muskogee, Oklahoma and within the Cherokee Jurisdictional Area of Oklahoma or the Cherokee Reservation of Oklahoma which means white historians are liars. It' the Chippewa Jurisdictional Area of Oklahoma. Letter "r" represents the rivers where they live. That be the Red River of the Mississippi River. It forms the Oklahoma/Texas boundary. I don't know of a Red River in Montana. However, Belt Creek has a reddish color. However, Belt Creek is far from the headwaters of Missouri River. Letter "s" represents the territory in which they live and the main rivers within their territory. The main river where they lived along was the Red River. It's the Oklahoma/Texas boundary. Their population was much higher than 2,000. They were very numerous in the Texas Panhandle region, especially in the Palo Duro Canyon region. Palo Duro Canyon region offered them protection from their enemies. The September 28, 1874 Battle of Palo Duro Canyon was fought in that region. You also notice how Clark wrote (Chippaway) Pania for the language they spoke. Though Clark wrote that the Pania Pickey were Pawnee, he also wrote they spoke a different dialect. He also wrote that the Chippaway (Chippewa Indians) spoke Chippewa. It's proof there was a northern Ojibway Tribe and a Southern Ojibway Tribe. In other words, Ojibway People have lived in the Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas region, for far longer than white historians have written.
