Day Star, Day Star First Nation
Located about 60 miles to the north of Regina, Saskatchewan, is the Chippewa (Saulteaux) settlement of Day Star. The name of day star is probably from one of the principle leaders of this band of Chippewa. The settlement has a population of 168. There are probably around 55 total housing units in the day star settlement, which gives the settlement around the usual 3.0 to 4.0 persons per housing unit average, which is typical for Chippewa settlements. The entire population is Indian. Only around 40 of the citizens speak Anishinabe. Below are several links to pictures of the town of Punnichy, which is important to the Chippewa and Cree. Most of the town is Indian and mixed bloods. Using google earth to view the Day Star First Nation is not possible. It is too blurred. The weather reports below are from the city of Wynyard, which is about 15 to 20 miles away.
