White Bear First Nation
Edward Littlechief, GM
Nestled in the scenic Moose Mountain Provincial Park in
southeast Saskatchewan, the Bear Claw Casino & Hotel is SIGA’s
most historic casino. The casino originally opened in 1993 on
the White Bear First Nation near Carlyle, SK. It was shut down
in what was a highly contentious and emotional part of history
between First Nations and the provincial government regarding
gaming in Saskatchewan. The casino re-opened in November
1996 and has been successfully operating ever since.
The Bear Claw Casino includes 30,000 square feet of floor
space, which includes 125 slot machines and 4 live table
games, Growlers Restaurant, a live entertainment stage and
Bear Necessities gift shop.
With the opening of the first SIGA operated 36 room hotel on
July 1, 2010, the Bear Claw Casino took on a new direction in
gaming for Saskatchewan and SIGA. The interior was completely
retrofitted with a new look that stands out from the competition
in the Southeast Saskatchewan Area. At the same time as the
opening of our new hotel, the newly renovated 60-seat Growlers
Restaurant was unveiled, giving the restaurant a new upscale,
high-end appeal.
