A Message from the Chairperson and Director General of the Cree School Board
April 27, 2020Youth News

The spring of 2020 has brought lots of change to our world. Right now, it’s hard for you to see your friends or to gather with cousins and other family; you also don’t see your teachers at school. Instead, you talk to your friends on the phone or through social media, and you learn in new ways, such as online. For those in high school, we know you are facing uncertainty. The world is a confusing place right now, and we, like you, find ourselves looking for new ways to accomplish our goals.

About Eastmain

A small Cree community of 850 on the eastern cost of James Bay, Eastmain dates back to a 17th century Hudson Bay Company post. As trading became more customary, Crees began to settle near the community. Only in 1962 when the Lands and Forests Act was passed was the community established formally as a Cree community. 

Eastmain is famous for its trout, whitefish, and pike, and today is the headquarters of the Cree Trappers' Association.
