Muscowpetung First Nation


It is one of four Ojibway communities located around Qu'Appelle Lakes. Qu'Appelle is pronounced as "Qu-Pel." Below are google earth photos of their communities. QU'Appelle Lakes Reserve was set aside for Saulteaux Ojibway People in 1875. It was chief Muscowpetung that signed an adhesion to Treaty 4 on September 8, 1875. They were native to Montana yet fled to Alberta's and Saskatchewan's Cypress Hills in 1876. It was actually chief Big Bear that signed treaty that established this Reserve. That may have happened in 1877 or possibly 1882. In 1881, a Reserve was surveyed for them and they commenced to colonize it. In 1882, their Reserve was extended four miles on it's west. More Ojibway's led by chief Piapot, were allowed to settle at Muscowpetung First Nation west end. Their on-Reserve population (it includes Piapot) is 812 according to 2016's census. They have 283 dwellings with 230 lived in. Average household size is 3.5 persons per household. Ojibway Language is no longer spoken there.
