History

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.  To get a complete transcript, click here.  Adobe Reader required.

Dated Legal Issues

The Lawsuit A lawsuit was filed in the names of the Chief and Councillors of the Papaschase Descendants Council in February 2001.  The lawsuit was filed against the Attorney General of Canada, claiming that the Federal Crown caused the dissolution of the Papaschase Band through various breaches of Treaty 6 and its fiduciary duty to the Band which resulted in a large portion of the original Band being discharged from Treaty, as well as the alleged surrender of the Band’s Reserve and the loss of its status as a recognized Band pursuant to Treaty 6 and the Indian Act.  As such, the lawsuit sought – among other things - a declaration that the Papaschase Band No. 136 is a recognized Band under Treaty 6 and the Indian Act, as well as reserve land - or compensation in place of the reserve land owed to the Papaschase Band.  The Crown in right of Alberta was added as a party to the action in January 2003.

The Papaschase signed Treaty 6 on August 21, 1877, and were given a reserve within much of what later became southeast Edmonton, Alberta including all of Mill Woods.[1] The reserve was petitioned by the new settlers to leave sometime around 1891 (they were actually coerced by Indian agents in 1888), when the Canadian Pacific Railway's Calgary to Edmonton branch arrived in the nearby Town of Strathcona. The former reserve is now bound on the north by 51 Avenue, on the west by 119 Street, on the south by 30 Avenue SW, and on the east by 17 Street NW.[2] The former reserve was incrementally absorbed in its entirety by the City of Edmonton over a series of seven annexations between December 30, 1959 and January 1, 1982.
