On June 7, 1866, Rev. James Nisbet set out from the Red River colony to found a church mission in the Saskatchewan River valley. On July 26, 1866, with the guidance of George Flett, a Scots-Metis and fluent Cree speaker, (and later a renown Presbyterian missionary) Nisbet landed at a place called kista-pinnanick, meaning meeting place.
