Moostissoostikwan, Manitoba


Located in northern Manitoba, is this Ojibway-Cree settlement of Opaskwayak which is located within Kasba Reservation or, if as i suspect, they were signatories to Treaty 10, than in that Reservation. They did sign treaty 5 as Saulteaux Ojibway and Cree however, as The Pas Band. Moostissoostikwan is located within an area designated E. It's population is included with it's Reserves population of 2,473 according to 2016's census. This town has 629 dwellings with 600 lived in. Average household size is 4.1 persons per household. Around 440 people speak Ojibway or Cree Dialect of Ojibway Language. It's a dying language at Moostissoostikwan. There are two portions of this town. A larger town is located 2.1 miles or 3.4 kilometers to it's southeast, adjacent to The Pas, Manitoba. However, it's a distinct community. Of course, that means this towns population is much lower than 2,473. Probably around 600. Have any idea what Moostissoostikwan means? Probably Little Moose Head. Ojibway Language diminutives are unique. Mons is an Ojibway word for moose. Adding a diminutive makes Mons become Monses or Moses. O'sti'gwa'ni'ma means "head" in Ojibway. However, like all languages Ojibway has a plural, past tense and present tense. Their word for head is either "Sti" or "Gwan." In Ojibway, their word for "hat" is "wi'wa'kwan." In Cree, it's "as'to'tin." So either "Moses'sti" or "Moses'Gwaan" is correct. Lewis and Clark called Cree Language corrupted Ojibway. That should tell you a great deal. Moostissoostikwan should be pronounced "Moses'sti" or "Moses'Gwaan." Translated, it means "Little Moose Head." To make it a locative in Ojibway, you'd add an "og" to "Gwaan." So "Moses'Gwaa'nog" or "Moses'Gwaa'noke" means "Little Moose Head Place." Moo'siss'oo'sti'kwan (that "t" is not pronounced) belongs to chief Rocky Boy.
