The Key First Nation


When Treaty 4 was signed between Saulteaux Ojibway's and Canada in 1874, chief Ow-tah-pe-ka-kaw, agreed to treaty by signing Treaty 4 on September 15, 1874. Below is a satellite image of The Key First Nation main town and google earth photos of Badgerville (Mis-sa-ka-kwrij O-de-na or Badgertown) and Springside (don't have any idea what Springside means) which are Cote and Keeseekoose towns. 2016's census reported The Key First Nation has an on-Reserve population of 143. Including Cote and Keeseekoose, their on-Reserve population is 1,382. They have 58 dwellings with 46 lived in. Average household size is 3.1 persons per household. Ojibway Language is no longer spoken at The Key First Nation. In history, these Saulteaux Ojibway's of The Key, originally came from Shoal River and Lake Winnipegosis region in Manitoba, to live at Keeseekoose First Nation or Reserve 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 these Ojibway's now live. They are from Grand Rapids Ojibway's in Manitoba. They were possibly forced out of Swan River Valley by Canada. Swan River Valley has an abundance of farm land. Their descendants in Manitoba, continue to live at Sapotaweyak, Wuskwi Sipihk, Chemawawin and, of course, Grand Rapids or Misipawistik. Canada coerced these Ojibway's to leave Swan River Valley region by setting aside a large Reserve near Fort Pelly in Saskatchewan. Keeseekoose was set aside 286.0 sq. mi. Cote was set aside 56.5 sq. mi. The Key was set aside 38.0 sq. mi. Total size of their Reserve is 380.5 sq. mi. or 985.5 sq. km. Canada used deceit to steal most of this Reserve. Canada negotiated with chief Rocky Boy about allowing his Ojibway Subjects to settle at this large Reserve. All "Land Surrenders" between 1897 and 1911, were for chief Rocky Boy's Ojibway Subjects. They were not to whites. Canada lied! Read Treaty 5 text.
