Manitoba House, Kenesota Metis Scrip Applications.

The Manitoba House North West Co Trading Post was established in 1797 on the west shore of Lake Manitoba, about fifteen miles north of the Narrows. This post was located near the outlet of Ebb and Flow Lake at "The Narrows" of Lake Manitoba; it was taken over by the Hudson's Bay Co. in 1821. Its original name was Doubtful Post, likely because of a lack of confidence in the survival of the post at the time of its establishment. The Metis people of this community were all descendants of employees of the Hudson's Bay Company and the North West Trading Company of French, English, and mostly Scottish extraction, who had intermarried with the Indians. The Ebb and Flow Indian Reserve was nearby and the Dog Creek Reserve was directly opposite on the east shore of the lake. From these sources the post derived its trade. Treaty Two was signed on August 21, 1871, at Manitoba House. The Metis settlement adjacent to the trading post was referred to as simply the Manitoba House Settlement until 1889 when the name Kinosota was suggested by John Norquay for the local post office. The settlement consisted of a number of long narrow lots strung out along the shore of Lake Manitoba.
