Muskeg Lake Cree Nation
Muskeg Lake Cree Nation is a progressive band that owns and manages a total of 35,123 acres in urban and rural lands. These lands are used for community living, agriculture, recreation and business. Muskeg Lake’s affairs are managed by the Chief and Council and informed by Cree Law. The Chief and Council meet twice a month to consult and make decisions about the community and the band’s businesses. An elder also attends each meeting.
Who We Are?
Muskeg Lake Cree Nation is a progressive band that was first established in 1881 and now owns and manages a total of 35,123 acres in urban and rural lands. These lands are used for community living, agriculture, recreation and business. Community members total about 2,135. While only 367 live on the reserve, the rest live throughout Saskatchewan and around the world. We have a proud history of achievement in sports, culture and, more recently, business. As a community, we are proud of our Cree culture, language and heritage. We have many events during the year, as well as a cultural camp, to celebrate our roots and our culture.
Where We Are
The main reserve for Muskeg Cree Nation is located 15 km north of the town of Blaine Lake and about 130 km north of Saskatoon, sitting on more than 7,200 hectares of land within Treaty 6 Territory.
- 35,123 acres in total
- 11 locations in Saskatchewan, including ten near the rural municipalities of Leask, Meeting Lake and Blaine Lake, plus Saskatoon
- Five leased lands for agricultural use
- Land uses include agricultural (pasture and hay or crops), recreational (Pitihkwakew Lake), and commercial (McKnight Commercial Centre, Saskatoon)
With the creation of the urban reserve, we have been successful in creating several enterprises and partnerships that have provided MLCN with additional resources that have been committed to our community to enhance program and services.
Why Muskeg Lake Cree Nation?
The leaders in Muskeg Lake empower community members to create opportunities for themselves to grow personally and economically. Running a business develops responsibility in the individual while generating funds for both the individual and the community.
With 15 acres of undeveloped urban reserve land we continue to look for opportunities to create partnerships in the development of the property.
