The Ojibway people living on the North Shore of Lake Superior (ancestors of Rocky Bay First Nations people) survived by hunting, fishing, and gathering food. When the fur trade moved its way into the Lake Superior area, the Rocky Bay First Nations started to include hunting and trapping (their economic activities) for the purpose of trading.
Indian people from Gull Bay, Sand Point, Red Rock, McIntyre Bay and Chapleau had been living there in the early 1950’s, and were formally constituted as the Rocky Bay Band in 1960. In 1971, a federal Order-in-Council set apart those lands as Rocky Bay I.R. No.1 for exclusive use and benefit of the Band.
