 Kettle Point 44, Ontario - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Chippewas of Kettle and Stony Point First Nation, or Kettle Point No. 44, is an Indian reserve 35 km northeast of Sarnia, Ontario on the southern shore of Lake Huron.
In 1942 the federal government expropriated land belonging to the Stoney Point band under the War Measures Act to build a military camp, Camp Ipperwash.
The land was to be returned after World War II when it was no longer required for military use, but after forty-five years it was still in use.

 Ojibwa - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The Ojibwa or Chippewa (also Ojibwe, Ojibway, Chippeway or Anishinabek) are the third-largest group of Native Americans/First Nations in the United States, surpassed only by Cherokee and Navajo.
They are known for their canoes and wild rice, and for the fact that they were the only Indian nation to defeat the Sioux.
Although "Chippewa" is more common in the United States and "Ojibwa" predominates in Canada, both terms do exist in both countries.
