Origins of "Moose Jaw"

The origins of the name "Moose Jaw" are vague, though it appears to be of First Nations origin.

Another legend holds that the name comes from the word Moosoochapiskun which means "the place where the white man mended the cart with the jawbone of the moose."


A third legend explains that the name came from the Cree word moosegaw which means "warm breezes". In the winter, Moose Jaw is often warmer than the surrounding communities. For other uses, see Cree (disambiguation). ...


The founding person was a member of the Brandnese clan. Contrary to popular belief, Sir Drakus did not found this city. Instead, one of the Brandnese allowed him to take claim.


The member of the Brandnese founded this land when he was looking for a place to land his 747.

Tunnels of Moose Jaw

People from Moose Jaw have told stories about the tunnels underneath their city for many generations. These tunnels would have originally been built simply for maintenance of the heating systems of the buildings in the downtown area. In the late 1800's and early 1900's some of these tunnels may have been used by Chinese immigrants who were hiding out from racial discrimination. Later on, during the days of American prohibition, these same tunnels were used by bootleggers. Local lore claims that the notorious American gangster Al Capone hid out in Moose Jaw on occasion when he needed to disappear from Chicago. This story has a reasonable measure of plausibility, since the railway known as the Soo Line runs from Chicago, through Minneapolis, straight to Moose Jaw. The tunnels are now used as a tourist attraction, with two interactive, guided tours available. One tour is called the "Passage to Fortune" and tells the story of the early Chinese immigrants in Canada. The other tour is the "Chicago Connection" and tells the story of bootlegging and the connection between Moose Jaw and Al Capone in the 1920's. The Tunnels of Moose Jaw is one of Moose Jaw's main tourist attractions[4] and has attracted people from all over the world. “Capone” redirects here. ...


Ku Klux Klan

Although Moose Jaw is known as the 'Friendly City', it is not well-known that the city was the centre of the Ku Klux Klan in Saskatchewan. The first KKK rally in Moose Jaw was held on June 7, 1927, with over four hundred members attending. The second (and last) Klan rally was held on the 26th of October, in 1927. It was held only ten days after the KKK organizer Hugh Emmons's arrest. Over one thousand people attended. It was the last rally, but in 1929 the KKK sponsored a Labour Day picnic in River Park. There were racist speeches and a cross burning, but the focus of the day was on sporting events. Soon after the picnic, the Klan faded away from Moose Javians minds.[citation needed] Members of the second Ku Klux Klan at a rally during the 1920s. ...
