Waywayseecappo First Nation


This Saulteaux Ojibway First Nation is located in southwest Manitoba. Below are several links to google earth photos of Waywayseecappo. On-Reserve population of Waywayseecappo First Nation, according to 2016's census, is 1,365. They have 438 dwellings with 428 lived in. Average household size is 3.2 persons per household. Around 85 speak Ojibway Language at Waywayseecappo First Nation. All dwellings, which number 438, are located along roads within this Reserve. Size of Waywayseecappo Reserve is small. It covers an area of land that is 99.56 sq. km. or 38.4 sq. mi. However, there is evidence they were set aside a rather large Reserve around 1877 or so, they shared with Birdtail Sioux (they are really Sakimay Ojibway's), Gamblers and possibly Rolling River. Those Ojibway's under Waywayseecappo, fled to Riding Mountains. Later, they were forced to where they currently live.



In 1881, it was reported that Gamblers, Sakimay and Waywayseecappo's population was 490, with 270 at Riding Mountains which are 3 miles or 4.9 kilometers from Waywayseecappo Reserve, or had yet to settle on Reserve. They reported that of Sakimay's 1881 population of 130, 55 were at Fort Walsh which means Montana Ojibway's are involved. They had yet to relocate to their Reserve in southeast Saskatchewan and southwest Manitoba. Those that had yet to settle on their Reserve numbered 325 in 1881. However, those 55 from Sakimay, did settle at their Reserve or Birdtail Sioux Reserve. Most stayed with Waywayseecappo. At Waywayseecappo, they have a town named Birdtail. There were at least 3 Reserves set aside yet possibly 4. They were Gamblers, Sakimay and Waywayseecappo. All were connected. Evidence suggests that Rolling River was their 4th Reserve. Most fled to Riding Mountains or near where Waywayseecappo is located. A land dispute eventually happened.
