Calling Lake Metis Scrip Claims

Calling Lake is part of the Bigstone Cree Nation. The lake's name is a translation of the
Cree name, which refers to the loud noises heard when the lake freezes over and the ice
breaks up. The Bigstone Cree Nation is located at Wabasca which is 123 kilometres
northeast of Slave Lake. Four Bigstone Cree Nation reserves surround the community.
Calling Lake is located 60 kilometres north of Athabasca. Chipewyan Lake is located
some 250 kilometres north of Wabasca. Peerless Lake is located 240 kilometres north of
the Slave Lake. Trout Lake is located about 250 kilometres north of Lesser Slake
Lake.Calling Lake is recognized as two separate places– Calling Lake (which includes
lands on either side of the Jean Baptiste Gambler 183 Indian reserve) and Centre Calling
Lake (which is between the designated place of Calling Lake to the north and Calling
Lake Provincial Park to the south).
