Message from the Cultural Coordinator of Mistissini

Mary Voyageur

My role as a Coordinator of Cultural Affairs is to record, document, protect and promote Cree Culture in general.  This includes gathering historic and genealogical data. It also involves preserving and protecting historic sites. We are also call upon to organize and record cultural activities that involves the passing on of traditional knowledge: customs, techniques, skills and Cree language.

As part of my mandate, I also sit as Board Member in committees such as the Aanischaaukamikw (Cree culture Institute in Oujé-Bougoumou) Board of Directors and also a member of the Executive Committee and to the Advisory Committee of the Nadostin Agreement, Cree Regional Authority.

In the following pages you will find the fruit of our labor over the past few years. We will periodically add new content has it become available.

I hope you enjoy
