Kawacatoose, Kawacatoose First Nation
Located about 60 miles to the north of Regina, Saskatchewan, is the Chippewa (Saulteaux) settlement of Kawacatoose. The name of kawacatoose is from one of the principle leaders of this band of Chippewa. The settlement has a population of 354, but it is only one of 4 Reserves set aside for the Kawacatoose Chippewa's. There are probably around 90 total housing units in the Kawacatoose settlement, which gives the settlement more than a 4.0 persons per housing unit average, which is typical for Chippewa settlements. One of the other Kawacatoose Reserves (the Poor Man one) must have a population because it is clearly stated that the on-reserve population is 1,042. The entire population is Indian. Only around 150 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 Kawacatoose 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.
