The reserve is located 33 km south of NORTH BATTLEFORD, with an infrastructure that includes a band office, band hall, school and teacherage, public works building, fire hall, and a treatment centre. The main economic base is agriculture, but the reserve hosts a band-owned grocery store, and in 1997 the band signed an oil and gas agreement with Wascana Energy Inc. The band's successful completion of a Treaty Land Entitlement Agreement has enabled them to increase their reserve's size to 29,345.7 ha, and invest in furthering economic development. The band has 1,893 registered members, 608 of whom live on the reserve.
The flag is white with the emblem in the center featuring crossed feather, pipe and belt, on top of which is a ring in white-yellow-green-red and a silhouette of a flying eagle over a gray hill.
