Muskoday First Nation


This Ojibway community is located close to Prince Albert, Saskatchewan. Below are google earth photos of their community. It's within Duck Lake Ojibway Reserve. Their on-Reserve population is 647 according to 2016's census. They have 217 dwellings with 205 lived in. Average household size is 3.1 persons per household. Ojibway Language is no longer spoken at Muskoday First Nation. These Ojibway's are not native to Saskatchewan. They originally lived in Montana. They relocated to their current location in late 19th century. Muskoday First Nation was established in 1876, after chief John Smith signed a treaty in which this First Nation was created. John Smith was father of at least five sons or possibly six. He led many Ojibway's to southeastern Saskatchewan, from Montana. Chief John Smith was chief Peguis. We know chief Peguis had his nose cut in a fight around 1802 or 1803. His younger brother John Tanner wrote about the incident. He claimed an Ojibway leader named Tabushish helped his son who was assaulting a woman that chief Peguis was trying to help. Tabushish pulled out a knife and cut chief John Smiths nose. According to John Tanner, Tabushish bit chief John Smiths nose off. Then chief John Smith bit chief Bagwais (chief Peguis) nose off. He didn't make sense! Chief Bagwais was chief Peguis. Chief John Smith was a mixed blood who was raised by his Ojibway mother. When he was about 15, he joined two Ojibway men and forced their way to John Tanners home near Cincinatti and abducted his younger brother John Tanner. This happened around 1789 or 1790. John Tanner was ashamed of his Ojibway blood. His brother chief Peguis became an important Ojibway leader. He eventually migrated to Montana where he lived most of his life. He lived where Blackfeet Reservation is. He eventually returned east around 1876. He settled where Muskoday is located then moved to Leech Lake Reservation in Minnesota. He died in 1922, at 148 years old. He was born in 1774. He still had all his hair. Photos of John Smith clearly show a disfigured nose. He was a murderer. He didn't like being called "Cut Nose." On one ocassion after being called "Cut Nose," he killed the Ojibway man who called him "Cut Nose." He could get away with it because of his leadership.
