The Rural Municipality of Indian Head No. 156 is a rural municipality in the Canadian province of Saskatchewan. It is located in South East Saskatchewan, in division 1 of the Saskatchewan Association of Rural Municipalities.
These self-governing communities are located within the geographical borders of Indian Head No. 156, but are technically not part of it.
Before 1905, Indian Head would have been part of the North West Territories.
The first settlers moved into the district in 1882. Indian Head was established as a town in 1902, and was said to be the largest point of initial shipment of wheat in the world. Indian Head has had many firsts in its history - the water and sewer system has long been the pride of Indian Head citizens. The water and sewer system was originally installed about 80 years ago. The water is the best in the country. It comes from the Squirrel Hills and flows by gravity for about 10 km into town. In 1978 the sewage lagoon was enlarged and upgraded.
