PR4007 · Collection · [Before 1983]

The collection consists of research files related to the former Papaschase Indian Reserve. The collection includes photocopies of correspondence, reports, orders in council, and other related records. The copied records cover the years 1881-1975

The Papaschase Band [Papaschase First Nation] signed to join Treaty 6 in 1877, but no action was taken by the Federal Government until 1880 to survey a reserve for the band. Due to a government error in the number of band members the surveyed reserve was smaller than should have been allotted. The Indian Agent responsible for the band transferred some members out when a complaint about this error was brought up, and the later commissioner pressured the band to surrender their land near Edmonton after years of pressure from Edmonton-area settlers. Band members were transferred mostly to the [Enoch Cree Nation] Enoch Band, and the land of Indian Reserve 136 was sold off. Band members were also convinced to relinquish Treaty Status through the North West Half-breed Commission, having been informed they would still retain title to their land. As of 2019, there were two separate groups representing descendants of the original Band. As of 2020, the Papaschase First Nation contended that Canada has acted contrary to the terms of the surrender.

The collection contains student reports on the Papaschase Reservation, and these are accompanied by documents such as copies of land titles, land patent applications, memorandum of scrip applications and deeds, Treaty 6, and surrender documents. There are also maps, correspondence on land title status and sales, records of those receiving scrip and having been discharged from treaty, interview records for scrip applications, and correspondence on uses of the “abandoned” Papaschase Reserve.

In addition, many of the folders contain indexes of sales, correspondence, and Library and Archives Canada records. There are also copies of relevant newspaper articles, handwritten notes and timelines, legal decisions, and the Métis Betterment Act.

The collection also contains a map depicting how the Papaschase Reserve fit into quarter sections. This map is a “plan of the subdivision into sections of the lands reserved for the band of Chief Papaschase.” It has been marked with pencil and pen along several edges. This map was first printed in Ottawa in 1891, and follows the reserve’s re-survey in 1890.
