About Day Star FN

The historical name of Day Star First Nations Reserve originated in the mid 1800’s. At that time, the Chief was Kii-si-caw-chuc, which means “Day Star.” Chief Day Star remained chief until his death in 1892. To this day the reserve is called Day Star and a different chief and council are elected every two years.​ Day Star is a small reserve in both land size and population. It has the atmosphere of a large family. Events that occur on Day Star are taken in by most of the reserve members and surrounding communities. It is a welcoming environment to any and all who visit it.
