When the Muscowpetung Saulteaux entered into Treaty 4 in 1874, the Crown promised to set apart reserve land for our First Nation as well as provide other benefits to assist our people in making a transition to an agricultural livelihood.
In 1881, the Crown set apart 37,760 acres (59 square miles) as Muscowpetung Indian Reserve 79. The Queen’s representatives told the Treaty 4 Indians that “the promises we make will be carried out as long as the sun shines above and the rivers flow in the oceans.”
