Cowessess First Nation
The Cowessess First Nation strives to enhance the quality of life for its members through self-sufficiency, the protection and enhancement of Treaty Rights, and the provision of effective services. The First Nation is comprised of mixed Cree and Saulteaux people that once were plains hunters and gatherers. Originally, the community assembled along the Canada and USA border as well as around Fort Walsh. Later, they relocated to their present day location in the beautiful Qu’Appelle Valley near Crooked and Round Lakes.
