The coroner's inquest is being held at the Kerry Vickar Center in Melfort, approximately 40 km from the two communities affected by the attacks.
Proceedings began Monday with a timeline of events, both the timing of the attacks and Myles' whereabouts Sanderson and his brother, Damien Sanderson, in the preceding days.
The first two police officers to visit the premises were then able to describe their arrival in the James Smith Cree Nation and the way in which they managed the crisis.
The Melfort RCMP detachment commander also described the operation of his detachment and its relationship with the First Nation.
Having started Monday, the coroner's investigation aims to shed light on the deaths of the various victims, in particular the manner in which these people were killed, as well as the time and place where this happened. It also aims to make recommendations to prevent such a tragedy from repeating itself.
A second inquest into the death of Myles Sanderson is scheduled for February.
