Muskotayo Reservation of Saskatchewan

This Reservation is not known of yet exists. Below is a map of Muskotayo Reservation 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 part of his nose severely bitten off in a fight - he was also known as chief Cut Nose). This Ojibway Reservations land area is not known. It's known that 6 Smith brothers were involved. However, they listed 4 Reserves. Chakastapaysin is from Muskoday. They listed their Reserve located near St. Louis, Saskatchewan which is 13 miles or 21 kilometers southwest of Muskoday. Today, they are listed as being from James Smith. Chakastapaysin Reserve covered 24.0 sq. mi. Muskoday Reserve covers 37.4 sq. mi. James Smith or Fort a la Corne Reserve covers 27.8 sq. mi. Cumberland Reserve covered 65.0 sq. mi. This information is from 1897. Total land area is 154.2 sq. mi. or 399.4 sq. km. However, Ojibway leaders considered 1 mile to be 1 league or 3 miles. Muskotayo Reservations land area is 462.6 sq. mi. or 1,198.1 sq. km. Then we can't forget that there were possibly as many as 6 Reserves. Chief John Smith predicted that Ball Club would be a big city some day. You possibly noticed a similarity between "Peg"uis and "Nag"wewes and Koona"pac." It's a cover-up. Peg-wis is derived from Pag-wish which means "Profit By" or possibly Prophet in Ojibway Language. Ojibway leaders took prophecy seriously and severely punished prophets that predicted incorrectly. Among Ojibway People, prophecy was taboo as a result of superstition caused by prophecy. Being a Conjuror was far more acceptable. A prophet is a person used by an entity that far more likely has evil intentions. Chief Peguis knew about Seven Fires Prophecy yet did not follow it. Paul Buffalo knew chief John Smith and wrote about him. Chief John Smith was a prophet in ways. He predicted. What follows is an excerpt from Buffalo's writings about Smith:

"Well," he said, " were coming into this world. That's when we were boys. There weren't very many people, just a few, and they were traveling in groups and they would camp together. Relationship and intermarriaged mostly would camp together. We met people. We had powwows. This great chief or somebody would sit down and give lectures." "My people,' he'd say when he spoke. 'My people,""" John said,""" were coming into the world. This is a great country, America. This country, this island, is great. He called it the island of United States.

That information alone is disturbing! Smith was not identifying as an Ojibway. He was identifying as an American. He knew from prophecy what will happen if Ojibway People don't follow Seven Fires Prophecy. When Smith was 14 years old, he first learned about automobiles or cars or they would be invented. There will be big highways through here. They may be stone. That be in either 1780's or 1790's. They already knew then. He also knew about planes. However, they already had airships by 18th century. Buffalo's writings about Smith indicate Smith was a mixed blood. Ojibway leaders did not like prophets. They knew what their future foretold. Smith told Buffalo: "We knew that, you see. So we formed up a council, because this is our country. So that is why we started to make treaties, because we saw what was coming into our country. When the whites came in here, they took over. They were learning us a better way of life, but we made treaties. We had trouble." John said, "we had trouble by other nations, other groups. He meant, they knew from prophecy that changes were in store and they had trouble with other Ojibway's. Within Ojibway Society is a totemic system. There are 6 major totems or nations, with many smaller totems or nations, within those 6 major totems. Chief Peguis or chief John Smith, is an interesting figure. He represented that portion of Ojibway Nation that favored Genocide. Ojibway People were already fighting among themselves, well before chief Peguis or chief John Smith, was born. During Smith's time, it was dangerous. Does Pinocchio sound like a clue? It's thought that chief Peguis or chief John Smith, had a portion of his nose bitten off in 1802, when he tried to break up a fight at Pembina, North Dakota which was an Ojibway Village. However, if he was a prophet, he was severely punished for incorrect predictions or just for being a prophet. John Tanner, who was white and had been captured by Ojibway Soldiers in Kentucky in 1789, detailed how Peguis tried breaking up a fight and Tanner's brother, Wa-me-gon-a-boo, bit off some of his nose. John (it's no coincidence) Smith looked white or was possibly a mixed blood. It could be possible that John Tanner was John Smith. Tanner was born in 1780. John Tanner became a leader of a band of Ojibway People and spoke only Ojibway. Look at Smith's photos carefully. He looked white. However, he was a mixed blood. He was too dark. He had his hair until he died. His nose was severely disfigured. It don't look like it was bitten off. That's why stories of Peguis having his nose bitten off should be ignored.

If you know about James Smith, Chakastapaysin and Peter Chapman First Nations, you then know that they are related. What you possibly don't know is James Smith was brother of John Smith who is responsible for Muskoday Reserve. There were 6 Smith brothers. It's an indication that 6 Reserves were set aside. Chakastapaysin, James Smith and Peter Chapman First Nations have land claims going back to 1898 and 1902. Those Land Surrenders were for chief Rocky Boy's landless Ojibway's. Canada claims otherwise yet they are liars. According to historians, these Ojibway's from Muskoday, Chakastapaysin, James Smith and Cumberland 100A (aka Peter Chapman) were from St. Peters Reserve in extreme southeast Manitoba. Today, they claim to be Cree yet they are Ojibway's. If John Smith was John Smith from Leech Lake Reservation in Minnesota, it means these Ojibway's came up from Montana. Why? John Smith was from Montana. He was born in 1784 (i don't know how they know what year he was born) and died in 1922 at Leech Lake Reservation. Chief Peguis was supposedly born in 1774 which could mean chief John Smith was 148 when he died. They listed his age at time of death at 138 years old. John Smith was from what is now Glacier National Park or Blackfeet Reservation. Somehow he moved to Minnesota. John Smith signed Treaty 6 (an indicator he was among Ojibway's that fled to Alberta's and Saskatchewan's Cypress Hills in 1876 and 1877) on August 23, 1876 at Fort Carlton, Saskatchewan, which is 41.5 miles or 66.8 kilometers southwest of Muskoday Reserve. John Smith (aka Missi Koonapac or Kabe Nagwewes or chief Peguis) was with chiefs Big Bear, Rocky Boy and Sitting Bull when they fled their native Montana in 1876. They met with Canadian negotiators at Fort Walsh first then at Fort Carlton. James Smith actually was in Saskatchewan in 1875.

As for those other Smith brothers, that's a mystery. James Smith also signed Treaty 6 on August 23, 1876. Chief Chakastapaysin also signed Treaty 6 on August 23, 1876. He agreed to settle near Fort a la Corne, Saskatchewan. In September 1876, Peter Chapman, leader from a supposed Cumberland Band, signed an adhesion to Treaty 6. They are known as Cumberland 100A (aka Peter Chapman) First Nation yet were amalgamated with James Smith in 1902 (an indicator they were actually from chief Rocky Boy's landless Ojibway Subjects) or set aside a portion of James Smith Reserve. Land Surrenders between 1897 and 1911, were for chief Rocky Boy's landless Ojibway's. They were not for whites. Canada reached an agreement with chief Rocky Boy and American leaders to accept 1,000's of landless Ojibway's. Muskotayo Reservation was created on August 23, 1876. It possibly included as many as 6 adjoining Reserves. It's north boundary is located at South Saskatchewan Rivers mouth. That's according to how boundaries are now. Muskotayo Reservations correct boundaries are probably located from Saskatchewan River and north. Not south of it. Population of Muskotayo Reservation is 1,904. It includes population of Weldon, Saskatchewan (Ojibway's make up nearly half of Weldon's population). Muskotayo (it means Prairie, The) Reservation must not be forgotten. What's going on now deals with money. It does not deal with land. Ojibway leaders wanted land whites didn't. Muskotayo Reservation has Violated written all over it. This Ojibway Reservation was chief Big Bears Reservations east portion or where Mouth of South Saskatchewan River is. It's west portion was Saddle Lake Reserve in Alberta.
