Muskoday Band Metis Who Withdrew from Treaty
Chief John Smith founded the Muskoday First Nation. The Muskoday First Nation wasformerly the John Smith First Nation. It is located in along the South Saskatchewan River near Prince Albert and is composed of Cree and Saulteaux peoples.The First Nation's land was settled by Chief John Smith leader of a Cree and Saulteaux band originally from the St. Peter’s Reserve on the Red River near Selkirk, Manitoba. Byillegal and controversial means the St. Peter’s group and was dissolved, and moved northwith the remainder of the band today comprising the Peguis First Nation in Manitoba.The other band members settled along the South Saskatchewan in the 1870s. Chief Smithsigned onto Treaty Six at Fort Carlton in 1876.Chief John Smith, was a brother of Chief James Smith, the founder of the James SmithFirst Nation. Altogether, six Smith brothers left St. Peter’s to move west. During the late19th century, James Isbister, the founder of Prince Albert served for a period as a farminstructor at Muskoday. He was married to Band member Margaret Bear, the daughter of William Bear.During the same period as the First Nation's name change, a highway was completedthrough the reserve that linked the town of Birch Hills with Prince Albert. The MuskodayBridge was then built over the South Saskatchewan River, which divides the reservelands roughly in half.
