Kaneonuskatew, Gordon First Nation
Located about 60 miles to the north of Regina, Saskatchewan, is the Chippewa (Saulteaux) and Cree settlement of Kaneonuskatew. The name of Kaneonuskatew is from one of the principle leaders of this band of Chippewa and Cree, who signed treaty 4 in 1874. Kaneonuskatew is better known by his English name which was George Gordon. Of course, the First Nation is named in his honor. The settlement has a population of 866. There are 225 total housing units in the Kaneonuskatew settlement, which gives the settlement a nearly 4.0 persons per housing unit average, which is typical for Chippewa settlements. The entire population is Indian. Only around 65 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 Gordon 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.
