History: Akinoskway

Reprinted from the July 1952 issue of Canadian Cattlemen

By Mrs. Freda Smith Mudiman, Swift Current, Sask.

Here they found wood and water and in season, wild fruit to vary their heavy meat meals. On the bushes beside the creek they found chokecherries, saskatoons and bullberries, so they named the stream Akinoskway.’
