Muscotay'o Reserve of Saskatchewan


This Ojibway Reserve is not known of yet exists. Below is a map of Muscotay'o (it means Prairie People and not Bald Prairie) Reserve and photos of chief John Smith (aka Missi Koonapac or Kabe Nagwewes - both kabe and missi mean all in Ojibway - he was chief Peguis who had his nose cut in a fight). This Ojibway Reserve's land area was originally located north of North Saskatchewan River and Saskatchewan River. It's known that 6 Smith brothers were involved. However, since chief Peguis was born in 1774, he was already over 100 years old in 1876 which means 5 of his sons and probably grandsons, each signed Treaty 6 on August 23, 1876, at Fort Carlton, Saskatchewan. Chief John Smith was from Montana and fled to Canada in 1876, with chief's Big Bear, Rocky Boy and Sitting Bull. Chief Big Bear demanded a large Reserve and Canada agreed. However, per treaty agreements, they had to relocate 100's of miles north. Their Reserve would be located north of North Saskatchewan River. It extended east of where Saskatchewan River branches into North Saskatchewan River and South Saskatchewan River, west to a location northeast of Edmonton, Alberta. Chief John Smith led his Ojibway Subjects to where Saskatchewan River branches. His Ojibway Subjects settled between what is now Prince Albert and Nipawin. North Saskatchewan River and Saskatchewan River, were chief Big Bear's Reserve's south boundary. It took several years for Ojibway People to relocate from near the Sweet Grass Hills of Montana and Cypress Hills of Alberta and Saskatchewan. Canada was not going to honor treaty. In 1884, Louis Riel was invited to Duck Lake and Prince Albert, Saskatchewan to instigate trouble. He led white settlers across North Saskatchewan River into chief Big Bear's Reserve. Canada did not want that to happen. They wanted to continue negotiations with chief Big Bear yet Riel was impatient. In 1885, war erupted. Chief John Smith did not participate in 1885's Northwest Rebellion. However, his sub-chiefs did. Thus, why there are land disputes today at James Smith First Nation. They were forced to relocate south of North Saskatchewan River and Saskatchewan River after 1885's War ended. They have forgotten what happened. Chief John Smith was set aside at least 6 Reserves after 1885's War. Chief John Smith was living at what is now Blackfeet Reservation in Montana in 1876. As mentioned, he fled to Canada during Montana's 1876-1877 War. And he did not live too long at chief Big Bear's Reserve. He eventually moved to Leech Lake Reservation in Minnesota where he died in 1922 at the ripe old age of 148. He originally lived near Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan and Ontario then migrated to south Manitoba and Minnesota. He lived there a long time before moving to Montana. He was receiving a pension from the United States which indicates he worked as an interpreter or teacher. He may have worked at St. Peters Mission near Great Falls, Montana. Chief John Smith was a murderer. After he had his nose cut, people started naming him "Cut Nose." He was offended by it. In one instance, after being called "Cut Nose," he killed the man who called him that. He also murdered other people! His nose was disfigured as a result of the assault and he was very sensitive about his appearance. Canada has an obligation to fulfill about chief Big Bear's Reserve. It's east portion was chief John Smith's District. Muskoday Reserve and James Smith Reserve including Cumberland 100A (Chakastapaysin), must have a land addition added to their Reserves. It's on the google earth map.
