About Punnichy

One of the first settlers in the area was a store merchant, Mr. Heuback. Mr. Heuback was a red headed balding gentleman who most first nations people thought looked like a "chicken without any feathers," a fledgling. Punnichy in the local native tongue means a chicken without any feathers, thus how Punnichy got its name. Punnichy is primarily an agricultural (grain and livestock) community. It has a number of privately owned businesses in the community, which are primarily used by the local people. The community itself is mainly made up of senior citizens who were born, raised, and married locally.
