Muskoday First Nation
The Muskoday First Nation (formerly the John Smith First Nation) is a First Nation band government in Saskatchewan, Canada, composed of Cree and Saulteaux peoples.
Who Are We?
Muskoday First Nation is a mixture of both a Cree and Saulteaux ancestry and has close to 2,000 registered members, with just over 750 of their members living on reserve.
Where We Are
Muskoday First Nation is located 22 km southeast of Prince Albert, Saskatchewan on provincial highway #3 in the Treaty 6 territory.
Muskoday First Nation encompasses 25,106 acres on three reserves in central Saskatchewan. The main reserve (Muskoday First Nation #99) is located in the heart of the South Saskatchewan river valley and covers 23,696 acres. Most of the land is agricultural and some of the best in the province of Saskatchewan.
In June of 2013, Muskoday’s first Treaty Land Entitlement selections received reserve status (Muskoday First Nation #99A and #99B) in the Rural Municipality of Paddockwood, 42 km north of Muskoday. All of Muskoday’s land is administered under the Muskoday First Nation Land Code and the Framework Agreement on First Nation Land Management. Muskoday was the first reserve in the province of Saskatchewan to move away from the land sections of the Indian Act and take control over it’s own lands and resources on January 1, 2000.
Other fee simple lands that Muskoday owns through its holding company and is looking to achieve reserve status on include 2900 acres in the RM of Leroy, 640 acres in the RM of Paddockwood, 240 acres in the RM of Prince Albert and 55 acres in the RM of Corman Park.
