About A. D. 1871, or shortly before it, part of this Pembina band was removed to the White Earth reservation in Minnesota, and settled on a township of land purchased for them from the northwestern part of the reservation' on the Wild Rice river and hence called, The Township of the Pembinas.
Not every Pembina relocated. In total, about 543 people were enumerated when Treaty Annuities were given out. The following list excludes Mixed-Bloods, but lists the names of 194 Full-Bloods. An additional 40 names are included on this list from 1895.
