Our Story

The White Bear First Nations is located 13 kilometres north of Carlyle Saskatchewan on Highway 9 and is 12,040 hectares (120.4 square kilometers) in size. Chief Wahpemakwa signed Treaty No. 4 on behalf of the population of 24 families (82 people) in 1875. The traditional languages spoken are Cree, Saulteaux and Nakota. The name White Bear First Nations is used, as opposed to First Nation, owing to the fact that there are Four Nations living on White Bear; Cree, Saulteaux (Anishanabe), Nakota and Dakota.
