I do not, which was a big problem with that.  I like mapping
weird boundaries like that, so I tried to take it on, but it seems there's
somewhat conflicting information between the tribe, US and Canada on this.
I strongly suspect we're going to need to find an Ahkwesáhsnean that knows
the boundaries well to get a solid cut on this and I'm not entirely sure
how to reach out.
