Muskeg Lake Cree Nation has a long and rich cultural history. First established in 1881, the core reserve is still home to approximately 367 community members (MLCN Health Records, June 2011). 1.481 additional members live across Saskatchewan and Canada, yet they are still proud to call Muskeg Lake their home and community.
In the second half of the 20th century, two agreements—mdash;Asimakaniseekan Askiy in 1988 and the Treaty Land Entitlement (TLE) Trust in 1992—led to the growth of Muskeg Lake. These agreements generated a need for the community to reach outward to surrounding governments and municipalities and bring us into a process of community consultation, something which had never before happened.
