Piapot Reserve Surveyed


Reserve surveyed for Piapot in the Qu'Appelle Valley. The land surveyed for Piapot's band was only partial, as it was not the correct size for the number of band members listed. It was nearly fifty-four square miles.

Officials did not always undertake surveying efficiently or responsibly, and inaccurate numeration of band members meant that the land provided to the band was often less than was deserved. This meant families would have to accommodate to smaller reserve lands, meaning less land for agriculture and traditional land subsistence.
