The NEHIYAW-PWAT CONFEDERACY was the largest Indian confederation in the Americas and controlled more territory than any other tribal confederation or, for that matter, Alexander the Great. It was an informal association of a number of tribes and independent bands stretching from British Columbia to the Atlantic seaboard. In the west these were primarily the Cree, Metis, Nakoda and Chippewa/Soto and included some bands of the Chipewyan, Flathead, Kutenay, Shuswap and Tza Tinne. More-or-less affiliated as allies were the balance of the Chipewyan, Flathead, Kutenai and Tza Tinne. This alliance is termed the NEHIYAW-PWAT CONFEDERATION (Nehiyaw = "Cree", PWAT = "Nakoda"). Although the confederation never established a Tribal Government, each of the hundreds of bands retaining their own independence, the bands recognized Regional Councils and always tended to act in accord. Unlike some other tribal associations and even tribes, there were never any known instances of members of the confederation fighting among themselves.

NOTE: This is an unofficial homepage posted by Heritage Databank Consulting. Because of the varied and dispersed nature of the Cree People, it is doubtful that an official Homepage will ever be created, or that any Cree homepage can actually adequately represent all the Cree. How to get more detailed information DIRECTORY INTRODUCTION HISTORY ORIGINS The Cree are Canada's - and one of North America's - largest tribal groups. The Cree People occupied more land than any other Native American group. In the pre-reservation period the Cree people occupied most of southern Canada east of the Rocky Mountains, and extended into the United States. Along with the Innu (Montagnais and Naskapi), an eastern division of the Cree (Ininiwak), they extended from the Rocky Mountains to the Atlantic Ocean, occupying most of the Boreal forest and the Canadian Plains. They were closely related to and allied with the Chippewa/Soto/Ojibwa and other Algonkian groups south of the Great Lakes and into New England. Interestingly, at one time there were 3 Cree metis settlements in Scotland, settled by descendants of Canadian fur traders. Today the Cree Indians are still scattered throughout these same regions, but tend to be gathered onto reserves or into communities. One Reserve, the Rocky Boy Reserve, exists in northern Montana. In additon, Cree groups can now be found throughout most of Canada, stretching to the Arctic Ocean in the north and the Pacific Ocean to the west. Some 30% of the Cree now live in off-reserve urban centers. Virtually half of Canada's Native populatio, and almost 3% of Canada's population is of Cree background. Today there are some 200,000 Cree in Canada registered as Treaty Indian, with a few remaining who have not yet signed treaty. In addition, most of Canada's Metis population of another 200,000 is of Cree origin and speaks Cree (many are also of Chippewa origin). Added to this are as many again who are of Cree origin but who identify more with their non-native ancestry.

NOTE: This is an unofficial homepage posted by Heritage Databank Consulting. THE WESTERN CREE PHOTOS LISTING HISTORIC MAPS LISTING Nehiyaw-Pwat Confederacy Mountain Cree Band of the Beaver Lake First Nation Land Claims Smallboy's Band Historic Collectables How to get more detailed information aka. Mountain Cree A division of the Plains Cree that has been largely defunct since 1885, which included several Cree and Nakoda bands residing in the foothills south of Jasper (Alberta). In Nakoda the collective name of these bands were the YE XA YA BINE. The Cree bands were known by collective name ASINI WACHI NEHIYAWAK and the Nakoda by the name YE XA YA BINE NAKODA. The first of the ASINI WACHI WI INIWAK bands were known to exist as early as 1650 A.D. but were destroyed in a subsequent smallpox epidemic. The second ASINI WACHI WI INIWAK was founded in 1820 and became the largest and main division of the Plains Cree. The ASINI WACHI WI INIWAK roamed from Edmonton south to Wyoming and from the Red River to Oregon. It ceased to exist when they moved onto reservations. Today several individual bands the name including the Asenewuche of the Grande Cache (Alberta) area and the Smallboy settlement south of Hinton (Alberta). Neither have a direct descent from the former ASINI WACHI, though there were some kinship connections. The name is also used by the Mountain Cree Band of the Beaver Lake First Nation, descendants of the senior branch of the ASINI WACHI NEHIYAWAK, and ASINI WACHI O KICHITA, or "Mountain Society", also largely composed of descendants of the ASINI WACHI NEHIYAWAK. The Ermineskin Band of Hobbema (Alberta) was the Cadet branch of the ASINI WACHI NEHIYAWAK and, as such, has the A PRIORI right to use the name. Several Nakoda bands, with varying ties to the original YE XA YA BINE, today still use the name. A number of claims have been made for having the first bridge west of Winnipeg (eg., by Fr. Lacombe at St. Albert in the 1860's, on the Kootenay Plains in 1858, etc.). The first rude bridge was over a little stream east of Rocky Mountain House in 1801; the first proper cart-bridge was built by the Mountain Cree across the Battle River in 1845.

NOTE: This is an unofficial homepage posted by Heritage Databank Consulting. The late 1870's and early 1880's saw a number of changes affecting the Cree of the Edmonton area. Two of these were - Extinction of the buffalo in this region. - An influx of outsiders, both Metis and Euro-Canadian/Americans Because of the extinction of the buffalo the existing bands began to break up as some traveled south in pursuit of the buffalo, while the elderly and those without the necessary mobility remained behind. Those who remained behind tended to remain close to the Edmonton settlement for hunting parties to return. At the same time outsiders were moving in, often single men who married into the local bands and worked for the Hudson's Bay Company or the newly forming government departments and Indian agencies. They, too, settled in the Edmonton community. They were joined by Metis refugee families fleeing from the new province of Manitoba, where the governance was less than Metis-friendly. Also living in and around Edmonton, both seasonally and full-time, were the families of Metis and Indian voyageurs, of which the menfolk would frequently be away, sometimes for months at a time. Many of these families - and most of the wives of these men - qualified as being Treaty Indian. Recognizing this, the Indian Department recognized those Treaty Indians living in the Edmonton Settlement as constituting the Edmonton Straglers Band, a legitimate band under Treaty provisions. Among these families were prominent families such as the John Norris family, Land Agent Anderson's family, the Garneau family, the Brazeau family, the Erasmus family, the Soulier family and others. However, by the end of the 1880's this band had been Terminated, through no known legal process. Attempts had first been made to shunt these families off onto the Papaschase band and reserve,without the agreement of the Papaschase Band (which was itself Terminated soon after), and then onto the Alexander Band, some 100 km. north of Edmonton - again without the agreement of either the Edmonton Stragglers (who's homesteads were in Edmonton) or the Alexander Band. And again, with a lack of success. By the mid 1890's the Edmonton Straglers had been erased from the Indian Affairs rolls as a band without any consultation or agreement by the members of that band. Members of the band are buried in the Rossdale Historic Cemetery, which is being destroyed by the City of Edmonton. Current research is being done in an attempt to clarify what had occured, and action is being taken to protect the interests of the descendants of that band.

A Successor band to PESEW's Band. This is our family's Home Band, being descendants of Chiefs PESEW and KISKIYEW. The band signed Treaty in 1877 but in 1885 withdrew from Treaty on the grounds that the terms had not been honored by the Government of Canada. The band eventually dispersed over the next few decades but technically descendants of the band are still Non-Treaty and have Aboriginal Rights and claims to their ancestral lands, which reached into British Columbia and the northern United States.

NOTE: This is an unofficial homepage posted by Heritage Databank Consulting. One of the last Cree bands to sign Treaty, they took Treaty in 1954. Although nominally the O'Chiese Band, the O'Chiese family did not sign treaty and are not members of the band. The band has no real recollection of it's history, though the O'Chiese family retains a strong family history tradition. The band members were actually largely refugees from the 1885 Rebellion who had fled to Montana and returned to settle in the Alberta foothills, using the subterfuge of being an O'Chiese band to gain re-admission into treaty.

This history page is posted by Heritage Databank Consulting. PAPASCHE DESCENDANTS research publication PAPASCHE'S BAND research publication THE STORY OF PASPASCES book review THE ROSSDALE BURIALS book review PAPASCHEW HISTORY This Article is taken Verbatim from the Paspaschase Website; it has a number of errors: "Chief Papaschase, his 6 brothers and their families moved to the Edmonton area in the late 1850's from the Lesser Slave Lake area. It appears they travelled and hunted in the Fort Edmonton, Fort Assiniboia and Lesser Slave Lake areas for some time before making Edmonton their home. Their band settled their and traded with the Hudson Bay Company and was employed with them from time to time. "On August 21, 1877, Chief Papaschase (also known as Passpasschase, Papastew, Pahpastayo, and John Gladieu-Quinn) and his brother Tahkoots, a Headman, signed an adhesion to Treaty 6 on behalf of the Papaschase band at Fort Edmonton. "In 1877, the Hon. David Laird, Lieutenant Governor and Indian Superintendent for the North-West Territories, recommended to the Department of Indian Affairs that surveyors be sent to lay out Indian reserves for the Edmonton Bands, however, no action was taken by the Federal Government to survey a reserve for the Papaschase Band until 1880. "By 1879, the buffalo had become virtually extinct and the Indians in the Edmonton area were suffering from severe starvation. Although a general famine had descended upon the Indians of the North-West Territories, the Federal Government of Canada did not provide necessary and sufficient relief to the Papaschase band or other bands as promised under the terms of Treaty 6." ----------------------------------------------------------------- A more accurate (Copyright 2009) version is: Paspaschew (the correct version of his name according to elders who knew him) and his brothers moved from Lesser Slave Lake to the Lac St. Anne area in the mid 1840's to be closer to the new Catholic Mission. Here they became hunted in the Lac St. Anne-Fort Assiniboin -Lesser Slave Lake area. They became affiliated with Alexander's (Alexander Kiski Chichi Arcand) Band. The Alexander band ranged from Fort Assiniboin souteast to the South Saskatchewan River, and gradually the Paspaschew group came to drift into the Edmonton-Beaver Hills area and hunting buffalo in the Vermilion River area. By 1877 many of these families had established small homesteads and farms in the Edmonton area and along Whitemud Creek. On 1877 the West People, under Head Chief Bobtail, agreed to sign Treaty, and on August 21, 1877 Paspaschew and Takooch signed an adhesion to Treaty 6 at Edmonton as headmen under Chief Alexander Kiski Chichi. At the time they were not recognized as an independent band, but as a band subordinate to Chief Alexander. The Paspaschew group was largely built around the Gladue (mother's) and Quinn (father's) family. By 1876 the buffalo had disappeared from the Edmonton area. Those who could now drifted south in pursuit of the buffalo. Those who could, including members of Paspaschew's band, joined Bobtail's band and moved to southern Alberta and into Montana. Paspaschew's band, like others on the North Saskatchewan, began to fractionate as some moved into southern Alberta, some - without the necessary transportation - remaining around Edmonton, and others hunting into the Buffalo Lake Area. With Lapatak's band having now largely abandoned their traditional Beaver Hills hunting grounds to move south, these lands were taken over by Paspaschew's Band. In 1880 the Paspaschase Indian Reservation was established in the Black Mud Creek-White Mud Creek-Two Hills area on both sides of the Calgary-Edmonton Trail. The Paspaschase Band was now being recognized as an independent band by the Indian Department. By 1881 the buffalo were virtually extinct, and many of those who had drifted south now returned to live on the reserve. Here pressure was constantly applied by the new settlers and the City of Edmonton to have the reserve closed out. When the Calgary and Edmonton Railway was established it ran though the reserve, and increasing pressure was put on the band. In 1886 the majority of the voters on the reserve voted to surrender the reserve for cash payments and/or Metis status on the belief that they would be immensely wealthy. Various of the members moved out to other reservations, while others took Metis status. Most of the band had centered around the Gladue family, and on accepting Metis status, most reverted to the family names Gladue or Quinn. At this point the band disintegrated and ceased to exist. In recent years attempts have been made by several competing groups to re-establish the band, with limited success. for more details.

NOTE: This history page is posted by Heritage Databank Consulting. ORIGINAL MEMBERS (1822) HISTORIC MAPS LISTING THE WESTERN CREE How to get more detailed information No Chief of that name. There was such a chief and band at this time, but this name is wrong. My fault - but the name is now in common use. Let me explain. Anyone familiar with our site knows I have an issue with people stealing copyright information without properly crediting the source. This is the story one of the dangers of doing so. I first identified this band and chief back in the 1960's, and began to use the name PESEW in various publications since then. I was always been a bit leary about that particular transliteration of the name, but continued to use it for romantic purposes: the translation can be BOBCAT, WILDCAT, LYNX or even MOUNTAIN LION. Cool Name. Much cooler than several alternatives (including FISH). Besides, there was some supporting evidence. Several of the children were named Wildcat, Bobtail, Bobcat Woman, and the Wildcat Hills were in his home range. In the early 1970's I continued to use the name and incorporated it into my M.A. Thesis. In 1978 I used the name in that form in educational texts and materials. In 1994 the name was posted on our website (which you are currently reading). From these sources it was picked up by other historians. Notably, it was picked up by the Samson First Nation without critical questioning - and without accreditation. Since, being Head Chief of the Mountain Cree, they reasoned, he was obviously a past Chief of the Samson Band. NOT TRUE, either. However, they used the name PESEW. The Samson First Nation has since used the name in it's legal depositions. I, on the other hand, (having since been able to reconstruct the full history of the individual, have become convinced that the name PESEW is the wrong transliteration. The name PESEW, however, has now gone into the official record and history of the Samson First Nation and the Cree. As such it will probably stay there for another 50-100 years. Sorry Samson, since you never credited where you got the information from, the mistake is now yours alone, not mine (or at least would not be mine if I kept my mouth shut). If you want to know the real name and transliteration, it is in our databank.

This matter appeared before the Alberta Government Ethics Commission, and was found to have enough merit to be forwarded on to the Provincial Ombundsman, who's office found enough cause to order an investigation into possible inappropirate action by the Government of Alberta. The government generated a vast pile of paper to justify itself. The Ethics Commissioner ruled that: had it been done by a bureaucrat, it would have been unwarranted and illegal interference by government in private industry BUT, this was done at the direction of the Minister and The Minister is not bound by such conflict legislation. Since the Minister is can do as he pleases, this government action was not inappropriate. As it happens, this agency so far has not been able to duplicate our data and place it on line. Since we have been researching this data and analysing it for 40 years it is unlikely they will catch up for years to come yet.

aka. RIVER PEOPLE These are the bands that once resided around and traded out of the Fort Pitt area and were considered a Regional self-governing entity. The SIPI WI INIWAK no longer exists as such, the component bands now being spread out from Onion Lake to Battleford, these segments now constituting seperate entities. For a comprehensive history of the Sipi Wi Iniwak refer to the on-line files noted on the Heritage Databank homepage or the Cree Band Listings page. Note that today the Enoch (Lapatak) Band has begun to refer to itself as River Cree. They were historically part of the Fort Edmonton group of mixed Cree/Nakoda bands, not part of the River Cree.

The Government of the Province of Alberta (Canada) in 2006 gave $7,000,000.00 to a competing Archives Network to gather this data and tap into our databank to duplicate our databank of their own use and disposition, including the charging of fees. The Government of Canada has given the Roots Project of McGill University and the University of Alberta $1,000,000.00 for a similar purpose.
