Grandmother's Bay

Grandmothers Bay is a First nations settlement of nearly three hundred people on the shores of Otter Lake, which is part of the Churchill River chain of waterways. This deeply traditional community, which is part of the Lac La Ronge band, is located approximately a hundred kilometres north of La Ronge. A sense of freedom abounds in this forest and river community that has made significant efforts to protect the culture and language of its inhabitants both young and old.

The people of Grandmothers Bay take great pride in their community and its rootedness in the land that has supported them and their ancestors for centuries. Many still practice traditional vocations of hunting, fishing and trapping though increasing numbers of them now are heavily involved in government and resource based employment. Despite its remote location Grandmothers Bay is accessible by all weather road and boasts most of the features of a larger center with a modern community infrastructure and easy access to most services.

The residents know that their wealth of tradition and culture long with activities and efforts centred on those traditions, promote greater understanding and respect for the Aboriginal way of life. Nearby pictographs and ancient living sites close to the community bear proof of the ability of the people to endure and to flourish using the means and ways that have been handed down generation unto generation along the Churchill. Grandmothers Bay a proud community that lives and nourishes its heritage!
