“ I didn’t know I was poor until someone told me I was poor.”
Bill Namagoose, 1984 Chief of Waskaganish, Cree Regional Authority
August 29, 2013 in Val-d’Or, Québec
Participant in James Bay and Northern Québec Agreement, Cree-Naskapi Act, and many other monumental political movements to come from Eeyou Istchee
Celebrating Eeyou Istchee’s rich heritage, history, culture, and land in our Sec V classroom. Our last project for our Population and Settlement unit in history will be to add information of our modern/ current communities to this map, detailing the current populations, date of settlement, reason for settlement, photos, important events or celebrations each community uniquely celebrates, and an anecdote or two. Unfortunately, we couldn’t fit all of Mistissini’s Category II lands into the map but the Category IA lands will have a good amount of space when we mark them.
Students were excited to get their hands messy for history class this afternoon and efficiently completed this map from start to finish in one class (with some pre-set up of the paper and some later paint touch-ups).
Can’t believe there’s only a week left!
