Swan Lake is a beautiful First Nation in southwestern Manitoba. The community, set amongst lush rolling hills, held its annual pow wow on the first weekend of July. Grand Chief Arlen Dumas was honoured to be a part of the grand entry.

It was the Grand Chief’s first time visiting Swan Lake First Nation. Upon arriving in the Anishinabe community about 200 kilometres west of Winnipeg, it becomes clear immediately this is a First Nation that puts a lot of care into taking care of the land and its infrastructure. The lawns are manicured and the houses are well-maintained.

There is a buffalo ranch, a modern Band office, and the Sand Hills Gaming Centre on the reserve. Close to the school you can find a beautiful splash pad that is suitable for children of all ages.

Swan Lake First Nation is led by Chief Francine Meeches along with Councillors Angie Black, Germaine Cameron, Roberta Morrisette, and Craig Soldier.
