The first nation takes its name after chief James smith a brother of chief john smith who founded the muskoday
first nation. James smith signed treaty six at fort Carlton in 1876. The population at the time of the signing was
134 members or 32 families. The original language spoken was cree. James smith alongside john smith migrated
to the area from the red river district of Manitoba and his cree name has been recorded as notwaw (k). However,
the term means good growing area and is better applied to the community rather than the chief. The
Saskatchewan First Nations later joined the people of James smith following the dissolution of their reserve rear st.
Louis Saskatchewan after the northwest rebellion. As they are separate signatories to treaty 6 the Chakras tapas
in do have some legal status as a separate nation but their status as a separate first nation remains in limbo with
