Born out of a meticulous, well-researched historical and current traditional land-use study led by Cega̔ K´iɳna Nakoda Oyáté (Carry the Kettle Nakoda First Nation), Owóknage is the first book to tell the definitive, comprehensive story of the Nakoda people (formerly known as the Assiniboine), in their own words. From pre-contact to current-day life, from thriving on the Great Plains to forced removal from their traditional, sacred lands in the Cypress Hills via a Canadian “Trail of Tears” starvation march to where they now currently reside south of Sintaluta, Saskatchewan, this is their story of resilience and resurgence.

About the authors

Cega‘K´ina Nakoda Oyate (Carry The Kettle Nakoda First Nation) is located south of Sintaluta, Saskatchewan, though the Nation’s traditional home territory is the western end of the Cypress Hills. Also known as the Assiniboine, The Chiefs of the Nakoda Nation—Cuwiknaga Je Eyaku (Man Who Takes The Coat), Teepee Hoksa (Long Lodge), and Wica Hostake (Lean Man)—signed adhesion to Treaty 4 at Fort Walsh on September 25, 1877.
