Mistawasis First Nation of Saskatchewan


These Saulteaux Ojibway People live in Saskatchewan. Below are google earth photos of their land. Mistawasis First Nation has an on-Reserve population of 681 according to 2016's census. They have 180 dwellings with 175 lived in. Average household size is 3.9 persons per household. Ojibway Language has died out at Mistawasis First Nation. This is not a Cree Reserve. Cree People are too cowardly to follow prophecy. In 1876, chief Big Bear along with chief Rocky Boy and chief Sitting Bull, fled their native Montana for Alberta's and Saskatchewan's Cypress Hills. Canadian negotiators were sent to Fort Carlton to negotiate a treaty with chief Big Bear about a Reserve. That treaty is Treaty 6. Chief Big Bear was in fear of being executed for his part in 1876's War in Montana. He signed Treaty 6 in either 1876 or 1877 and agree to lead 1,000's of his Montana Ojibway's 100's of miles north to near Fort Pitt. He possibly did that in 1877. He told Canadian negotiators he had to return to his people at Cypress Hills and would bring them north to sign treaty. His Ojibway subjects found many locations to settle at. One is Mistawasis First Nation which is within Big Bear Reserve. He did not cede his Reservation. They have no proof he ceded Reservation. They only go so far as writing that chief Big Bear wanted a large Reserve which included many districts. Mistawasis First Nation is one of many locations chief Big Bear's Montana Ojibway's settled at. His Reservation extended from east of Mistawasis, to a location west of Saddle Lake Reserve in Alberta. Chief Big Bears Reservation is north of North Saskatchewan River or as they agreed to, North Saskatchewan River was his Reservations southern boundary. We have been told by prophecy to find evidence along a trail. That's what we are doing.
