Located about 25 miles north of the Chippewa city of Montreal Lake, is the small Chippewa settlement of Way-ya-kwin, which is actually considered a part of the Montreal Lake community. Using google earth, i learned that the small settlement has no paved streets. The small settlement may not have any paved streets but it is still a small beautiful settlement. The total population of the tiny settlement is 99. The 99 population estimate is from 2006. In 2001, the settlement supposedly had a population of 183, which means some event has occurred there that has rapidly reduced the population. We must worry about that because the population drop off was dramatic and sudden. It is likely the small settlement has (or once had) at least 50 housing units. Below are several links to pictures of the small Chippewa settlement of Weyakwin, Saskatchewan. Weather reports are from the nearby Chippewa city of La Ronge.
