Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation is an Asinīskāwiyiniwak (Rocky Cree) First Nations group in northern Saskatchewan consisting of eight communities: Amisk Lake, Deschambeault Lake, Kinoosao, Pelican Narrows, Prince Albert, Sandy Bay, Southend and Sturgeon Landing. The administrative center of the Peter Ballantyne Cree Nation is Pelican Narrows.


The current elected Chief is Peter A. Beatty. Chief Beatty was previously an elected Councillor from Deschambault Lake, Saskatchewan and had been for 10 consecutive 2 year terms.

Former Chief McCallum declined to seek re-election after 3 consecutive terms.
