The Turn—the spot on the Moose Jaw River that was the easiest to cross—was a place the Cree and Assiniboine peoples gathered. It was also here that Chief Sitting Bull sought refuge after the Battle of the Little Bighorn. Into this already busy and thriving place, surveyors came to lay out the land for future homesteads. The Canadian Pacific Railway was built and Moose Jaw was chosen as its divisional point, establishing it as one of the most important cities on the Prairies. Moose Jaw tells the story of this crazy named town that soon became a city of more than 33,000 people and is now known as “Canada’s Friendliest City.”
