The Town of Minnedosa resides on Treaty 2 land. We acknowledge, with gratitude, that Minnedosa is on the ancestral lands of the Anishinaabe, Cree, Oji-Cree, Dakota, and Dene peoples’, and the Métis Nation. We work to grow the land and community together; with inclusive and engaging opportunities for all. 

In the Dakota language, Minnedosa means “flowing water”. The River flows through the lake and town holds significant history, value and recognition. Among Town events, recreation, and the campground; the water remains a treasured landmark for its history and the constant growing memories for many. 

We pay our respects to the elders, past and present, and commit to fostering respect, understanding, and reconciliation with Indigenous communities.
