About Muscowpetung Saulteaux Nation

In 1874, Treaty 4 was signed on behalf of Canada with the Saulteaux, Cree and other Indians inhabiting the south and central plains of North-West Territories. On September 8, 1975, Cheecuck, a Saulteaux Chief, adhered to Treaty #4 on behalf of what later became known as the Muscowpetung Band.

The Muscowpetung Saulteaux Nation currently has nearly 1600 registered band members with nearly 500 living on reserve in the beautiful scenic Qu’Appelle Valley.

Chief Anthony Cappo, Councillor Melissa Tavita, Barry Cappo, Adam Toto, Dwayne Stonechild and Thomas Pratt are the current elected officials and will serve the community until the end of their term March 2020.

The Muscowpetung has owns three local businesses on reserve including the Muscowpetung “Stop n Go” Convenience Store, Mino Maskihki Cannabis Dispensary and Muscowpetung Security Services which employs many local band members at each business.
