Eeyou Istchee: Land of the Cree


Date and Time: Sunday, 6 December, 2020 - 13:30 Eastern Time

Presenter: Louise Abbott

In 1975 the Quebec government signed a landmark accord with indigenous peoples in the northern reaches of the province after it initiated the first of several large-scale hydroelectric projects in James Bay. Since then, the once nomadic Cree of the region have undergone dramatic changes in their way of life. Today they reside in self-governed modern communities. But the bush and the traditions that evolved there remain central to their identity.

In the spirit of truth and reconciliation, Louise Abbott will share her observations about the history and contemporary life of the Cree of northern Quebec based on her collaborations with various Cree groups over a period of eleven years. She will include photographs and film excerpts.

Click on the button below to view a short video trailer that Louise created about Eeyou Istchee: Land of the Cree, a book she wrote, co-photographed, and designed.
