They are Ojibway. The so called Ojibway-Sioux War was really a war between the Ojibway Nation against the English and their Eskimo allies. In the 17th century, the English, French and white Russians commenced bringing an Asian People from a tropical location in southeastern Asia, to Alaska, extreme northern Canada and Hudson Bay. Many were brought to Greenland also. From Hudson Bay, the Eskimos commenced fighting the Ojibways or fighting the wars for the whites. Whites stationed them at important waterways, from Alaska to Hudson Bay. From Hudson Bay, the Eskimo Soldiers and what few white Soldiers who accompanied them, launched assaults against the Ojibway People. After forts were established around Hudson Bay, the whites brought more Eskimos in to do their fighting for them. Eskimo Soldiers also fished and hunted for the whites, to supply them with food. They were heavily armed by their white allies. They lauched assaults as far south as Minnesota and Wisconsin. It wasn't until 1774 after Cumberland House Fort was built in Saskatchewan, that the Eskimos intensified their assaults against the Ojibways. During the War of 1812, the Eskimos and their whites allies fought their way to southern Manitoba and intensified their assaults against the Ojibway's. However, they could not defeat them. They had built forts in southern Manitoba where they stayed. In 1817, Ojibway leaders signed the Selkirk Treaty with the Eskimos and whites and granted them a small colony in southern Manitoba and along the Red River in Minnesota and North Dakota. It's known historically as the Red River Colony. Ojibway Soldiers subjugated the small colony until 1870. In 1862, Ojibway Soldiers attacked that part of Red River Colony in Minnesota and North Dakota, killing hundreds. The United States wanted that part of Red River Colony located in Minnesota and North Dakota liberated. They really wanted the land. They didn't care for the people because they were too mixed. According to 1832's Edinburgh Encyclopedia, two groups of Ojibway's migrated east. One group came up from the southwest, while the other followed in a northern parallel line. They were named Iroquois. They settled along the St. Lawrence River. However, we know the Ojibway's forced the Iroquois out of the St. Lawrence River region which means the Iroquois are Ojibway. Edinburgh Encyclopedia list the Dakota People or Sioux, as being Iroquois. William W. Warren wrote in his book, that Ojibway Soldiers forced their way north to Hudson Bay around 1530.
