In history, these Saulteaux Ojibway's of Keeseekoose, originally came from Shoal River and Lake Winnipegosis region in Manitoba, to live at Keeseekoose First Nation in Saskatchewan. Their original territory included land around Lake Cedar and also Lake Winnipegosis's north shores, down to Swan River Valley (location of old Swan River Reserve), into Saskatchewan, where Keeseekoose Ojibway's now live. They are from Grand Rapids Ojibway's in Manitoba. They were possibly forced out of Swan River Valley by Canada. It has an abundance of farm land. Their descendants in Manitoba, continue to live at Sapotaweyak and Wuskwi Sipihk and Chemawawin and, of course, Grand Rapids or Misipawistik. Read Treaty 5 text.
