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.
