Kawacatoose First Nation is breaking economic ground by being the first band to opt of the money management provision of the Indian Act.
This votes is a process that has been years in the making.
Wesley Machiskinic was one of about 50 band members to wait up to the early morning hours to hear the results of the First Nations Oil and Gas Money Management Act (FNOGMMA) referendum held on Friday.
"The final vote tally was 1005-yes and 201-no so it was unanimous,” Machiskinic explained.
It's a dream come true for 18 year old Morgan Klimchuk.
The Regina Pats left-winger was selected 28th overall in the 2013 NHL Draft Sunday by the Calgary Flames.
Calgary is Klimchuk's home town.
Pats General Manager, Vice President, and Governor Chad Lang says he knew Calgary was one of the teams checking Klimchuk out.
"I think it's real rewarding for Morgan," Lang says.
"He was a real focussed kid from the day we selected him in the bantam draft. He knew what he wanted to achieve personally and today he was rewarded for his effort."

After Levi Steinhauer was picked in the fifth round of the 2013 CFL draft, his father Keith took the family down to Saskatoon to celebrate with a family supper.
“Levi was just relaxed that somebody took him. He wasn’t wondering anymore,” said Keith prior to the season opener. “It was lots of fun.”
For many of us, the Canada Day long weekend is the best long weekend of the year. We’ve waited months to have no snow on the ground, finally allowing us to enjoy our favourite summer activities while freely wearing shorts or skirts.
And with the forecast looking sunny and hot in Regina, that means a lot of us will be out and about.
“Washing cars, golfing, CFL football. We've got the Riders playing,” said one man on what his plans for the weekend are.
UPDATE: As of 3:00PM Friday, Shaylee has been located by Regina police. She is now safe and sound back home.

Shaylee McNabb was last seen Wednesday at around 8:00PM. Police say she told a family member she was going to a unnamed friend's house, and never came back home.
Police don't think she's in any harm, but because of her age, she is vulnerable.
She's described as aboriginal, five feet tall, about 62 pounds with shoulder-length brown hair and brown eyes.
Whether you're enjoying an evening walk at the park, relaxing on the deck or visiting at the campfire, watch out for the Culex Tarsalis mosquito.
Phil Curry is the West Nile co-ordinator for Saskatchewan and he said the West Nile carrier mosquitoes have been found in traps around the province already. So far they have not detected the actual disease which is common for this early in the season.
Standing water and hot temperatures through July could create prime conditions for increases in Culex Tarsalis mosquito populations.
Saskatchewan's provincial parks are full as campers celebrate the first weekend of summer over the Canada Day weekend.

However, MacDonald says there are a few camp sites available in some parks.
Cam Hamilton is one camper spending the weekend at the Echo Valley Provincial Park who made the reservation months ago online.
