Kahkewistahaw is located 15km North of Broadview, Saskatchewan along the #201 Highway and next to the Qu’Appelle Valley.
Kahkewistahaw’s father, Le Sonnant (Mähsette Kuiuab), was a leader of the Rabbit Skin people (Wāpošwayānak). Le Sonnant, a medicine man and warrior, was one of the signatories of the 1817 Selkirk Treaty.

In September of 1874 Kahkewistahaw himself signed Treaty 4, which established reserves for each signatory tribe. In 1881, the tribe’s reserve was surveyed. It was situated on the south side of the Qu’Appelle Valley, between Round Lake and Crooked Lake. Once the reserve was established, many, including Kahkewistahaw, gave up their traditional buffalo hunting and adopted farming and raising cattle.
