LOCATION

Wabamun Lake, a traditional fishing and hunting area, had been selected by Headman Ironhead and his followers as a desirable area. Wabamun is a Cree word meaning mirror or looking glass. The lake was once referred to as White Whale Lake however, the Stoney called it Wihnemne (glass looking glass).
Reserve lands Wabamun 133A and 133B, surveyed in November 1891 by John C. Nelson, were established through an Order in Council on June 16, 1892 (ICC 2007a).
