Historic Sites of Manitoba: Crane River Roman Catholic Cemetery (Crane River, Northern Manitoba)

In 1927, a Roman Catholic church was built at this site on the Crane River Reserve in northern Manitoba. Also known as O-Chi-Chak-Ko-Sipi First Nations Catholic Church, it was served for over 60 years by a priest who commuted from the community of Toutes-Aides. Destroyed by fire, the church is commemorated at the site by a monument, along with a fenced cemetery. In 2009, it became a municipally-designated historic site.
