Lhtako Dene Nation

The Canadian government offered Chief Louis Newashisha a portion of their territory at the Maniwaki reserve (created around 1850). But the Atikamekw refused to live there, so the federal government offered one in Wemotaci, created around 1880, for them. Finally, the government conceded to the demands of the Atikamekw of Manawan, after years of negotiations.
