WELCOME TO BIGSTONE CREE NATION TRUST
The largest of our trusts is The Nations Trust. The Nations Trust is designed to never deplete; because no more than half of the account interest on the funds will ever be used in one fiscal year, the account continually replenishes through accumulating the remaining half of bank interest on the saved monies. This protects the long-term interests of our members and our children. Any monies that are not used within the calendar year are returned to the trust account.However, the contract governing this trust is impossibly restrictive, prohibiting our nation’s access to the funds we lawfully own. To date, Bigstone Cree Nation has never successfully accessed The Nations Trust and the likelihood of accessing funds decreases each year.
