Saulteaux Ojibway ogima (chief) Kahkewistahaw, signed Treaty 4 in September of 1874 on behalf of his Saulteaux Ojibway subjects. Chief Kahkewistahaw and chief Chacachas, were set aside a Reserve on Round Lakes south side. Their history has links to a Chippeway Exodus out of Montana, during 1876-1877. They settled around Cypress Hills region of Alberta and Saskatchewan. White leaders coerced many to relocate to Crooked Lakes, where they merged with Ojibway People known as Ochapowace and Sakimay, who are both native to southeastern Saskatchewan.
