Oshki-ishkonigan – Peguis First Nation – Treaty 1 Territory

Peguis First Nation is a Treaty 1 First Nation, located in Manitoba, Canada. With a population of approximately 10,246 members of Ojibway and Cree descent, it is the largest First Nation community in Manitoba. The main community of Peguis First Nation, Peguis 1B, is located approximately 196 kilometres north of Winnipeg, MB. Peguis First Nation has a rich culture, strong traditions and a significant history within Canada. The community is named after Chief Peguis. Peguis led the band of Saultaux people from present day Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario to a settlement at Netley Creek, Manitoba, and later to St.Peter’s (present day East Selkirk, Manitoba). After an illegal land transfer in 1907, Peguis First Nation was moved to its present location at Peguis 1B. Severe flooding in Manitoba in 2011 caused serious damage to housing and infrastructure and led to people evacuating from 18 First Nations communities. Peguis First Nation was one of the First Nations affected by this flooding.
