ABRAHAM BEARDY MEMORIAL has been named in the honour of one of the First Nations Elders in the community of Shamattawa.

Abraham Beardy was the town's first chief. The school contains four separate buildings with a population of 330 students from nursery to grade 10. The school has 21 professional, 21 paraprofessional, and 8 support staff.

There are 19 modern teacherages that are adjacent to the school, ranging from 1 to 3 bedroom apartments.

SHAMATTAWA, with a population of approximately 1000, lies on the banks of the God's River in beautiful Northern Manitoba. The spoken language is Cree but most people have a good working knowledge of English.

The town is a 2 hour flight North of Winnipeg and a 1 hour flight East of Thompson. Hunting for moose, caribou, and geese are popular events in the community and there are trappers who take fox, rabbits, pine marten, timber wolves, lynx, and wolverines. There is a variety of fish such as Northern Pike, Pickerel, Whitefish, Sturgeon, and Brook Trout. The Spring and Fall are beautiful times of the year and the Winter is great for snow sports but can get quite cold (-40).

The community celebrates traditional Treaty Days in late June, this is always an enjoyable event. Come and experience the North!!!
