About Community

Cross Lake First Nation is a band of Cree First Nations people in Canada governed under the Indian Act. Its members occupy several reserves within the town of Cross Lake situated on the east shore of Cross Lake in the province of Manitoba. In May 2021, its recorded registered membership was 9,058, of which 6,293 people lived on their own reserve. Cross Lake is the principal community of the Pimicikamak indigenous people that made a treaty with the British Crown in 1875. The indigenous language of the band members is Woods Cree.
