The Norway House Cree Nation received its current name when the Hudson Bay Co. established a post near the northern outlet of Lake Winnipeg (1814) in recognition of the Norwegian laborers, recruited to built the post. The Nation is signatory to Treaty 5 signed in 1875. It is located on the bank of Nelson River, some 30 km north of Lake Winnipeg and 456 air km north of Winnipeg.
Three reserves on 7,949 hectares: Population: about 6,000.
