FAMILIES

In the old days, we had Cree names for most of the places in our territory. 

We have inhabited this land  for a long time.

The Local Families:

The Aseniwuche Winewak People live in an area from Jasper and Hinton in the south to Grande Prairie in the north. The modern town of Grande Cache is in the geographic centre of this area. Over the years, a number of family names stand out as having been associated with the Rocky Mountain people. It should be noted that these families have intermarried with a number of other families to the north, south, east and west, however the families which follow, in alphabetical order, seem to have been the core families.
