Cree Nation of Waskaganish
Waskaganish (Cree for Little House) is a Cree village of about 2000 people at the mouth of the Rupert River on the south-east shore of James Bay in the Eeyou Istchee territory in Northern Quebec, Canada. Formerly called Fort Rupert, the location is one of three original Hudson's Bay Company posts on James Bay, the other two being Fort Albany on the west shore, and Moose Factory on the south.
The Cree Nation of Waskaganish has a rich culture and heritage, being the oldest Cree community in the James Bay and an important historical site for the Cree Nation and Quebec. As the birthplace of the Hudson Bay Company and the British fur trade in western Canada, Waskaganish stands at complex intersections between people, places and things that have helped create a nation.

The historical overview we crafted serves as a captivating narrative that connects the past, present, and future of The Cree Nation of Waskaganish.
