The McLeod Lake Indian Band has 49,536 acres of reserve land, plus some fee simple properties which are at: Summit Lake (56 ha. and the Mackenzie Junction (43 ha.) that we are managing. Land Management in conjunction with the Economic Development department must try to utilize these lands in an environmental sustainable way and generate an income with them. The reserve land we have is mostly used by forestry. In the future the Band would like to have other uses of the land; such as having cabins and using them to exercise our traditional activities such as hunting, fishing, trapping, berry picking and gathering. Other ideas would be to create eco-tourism opportunities. What would you, as our Tse’Khene people like to see with our land management? Let us know!
