Key First Nation


The Key First Nation is a band government in southern Saskatchewan, Canada. Their reserves include The Key 65 and Treaty Four Reserve Grounds 77, shared with 32 other bands. The 2016 census reported that The Key First Nation had an on-reserve population of 143. 

Since the middle of the 19th century, Chief The Key and his followers had resided in the vicinity of the Shoal River in southwestern Manitoba covered by the terms of Treaty 4 in 1874. They obtained reserve status in 1878 when some 31,000 acres of land were surveyed for them at Swan River. In 1880, officials of the Department of Indian Affairs declared that the likelihood of annual flooding made the location of the reserve unsuitable and the Band was relocated to the Fort Pelly district, about 90 miles to the southwest to its current location.
