“Fishing Lake First Nation is an independent first nation of the Saulteaux branch of the Ojibwe nation. Originally from central
Canada, the First Nation was pushed westward to avoid encroachment by European settlers. They first settled in Manitoba
and were part of the Yellow Quill Saulteaux First Nation. In the late 1880’s, the First Nation separated into three reserves
located near Nut Lake, Fishing Lake, and Kinistino, Saskatchewan. By 1907, Fishing Lake First Nation was officially recognized
as a separate First Nation and had settled near Fishing Lake, Saskatchewan..
The flag is white with an oval in the centre featuring a fish.
