Description: George Flett was born at Moose Lake on the Saskatchewan River. He played an outstanding role in both Manitoba and Saskatchewan. George worked for a while as an interpreter during Treaty negotiations. He also served in the Provisional Government headed by Louis Riel. For many years he served as minister and farm instructor for Keeseekoowenin Reserve. For his long service as missionary in Prince Albert, George Flett earned the title of “Father of Prince Albert.” He came to eventually build his home and mission at Keeseekoowenin near Elphinstone, Manitoba. In 1875, at age 57, the Presbytery of Manitoba ordained Flett “missionary to the Indians.” He was to serve this western part of Manitoba for the next 20 years.
