Why does Kisipatinahk School have a paskaw mostos (buffalo) as a mascot?
Louis Bull Reserve was named after Louis Bull, the son of Noah Muddy Bull who was considered the leader of the Band. His Cree name was Askiw Mstos which some say was mistranslated as Muddy Bull. The real translation they say is Earth Bull. The Cree translation for buffalo is Paskwaw Mostos. The Kisipatinahk School would therefore have the buffalo as their symbol for their obvious connection with the name of their previous leaders.
