The Reserve was established in 1974, the negotiations was done when Daniel Sonfrere was the chief. The Reserve is a vibrant and prosperous community with a Band Membership of 525 and on Reserve population of 270. Most of the residents are South Slavey Dene, who have occupied these lands for thousands of years. The Region is rich in Wildlife and Natural beauty. But, long before settlement of the (Anglican Mission, Church, Mission School, Roman Catholic, Trading Post and RCMP), the South Slavey Dene used the mouth of the river site for fish camp, taking advantage of the plenty fish runs, during fish seasons. People would camp out on the shores of Buffalo Lake, and are still using the traditional hunting land, Dene life heeded the rhythms of the land. They lived in harmony with the land and made good use of it’s needed resources.
