Opaskwayak Cree Nation

The Opaskwayak Cree Nation (OCN) is a Swampy Cree Community, located on the North shore of the Saskatchewan River and approximately 2 km North of the Town of The Pas. The site had been a traditional gathering of the Cree for centuries, who met here every summer to conduct a variety of activities such as hunting, fishing, trading and socialization. Today, OCN is home to the Otineka Shopping Mall, The Gordon Lathlin Memorial Centre (Home of the OCN Blizzard Junior A Hockey Club), a Community Plex and the beautiful Kikiwak Inn as well as the Aseneskak Casino. The Opaskwayak Indian Days are held every third week in August to celebrate the Cree traditions and culture.
