Mistawasis First Nation

Located some 70 kilometers or 43 miles west of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan, is the Anishinabe Mistawasis First Nation. Historically, this band of Anishinabek were led by one ogima (chief) Mistawasis when Canada commenced to start trouble with his people. The Ahtahkakoop wanted a Reserve which was connected to the Mistawasis Reserve which Canada agreed to but after the surveying was complete, both the Ahtahkakoop and Mistawasis learned the whites deceived them. It was similar to the large Reserve ogimak Big Bear, Little Pine, Little Poplar, Lucky Man, and Poundmaker requested. In fact, for all we know all Anishinabe peoples in that region of Alberta and Saskatchewan, requested for likewise. It covers 14,815.9 hectares or 36,610 acres. The Reserve population is 1,097. Below is a link to a map of the Mistawasis Reserve.
