Whapmagoostui youth head out in support of Idle No More
The Nishiyou Journey is just about to start up in Whapmagoostui. Six youth, along with a guide and a trail-maker left the community heading to Chisasibi on January 16th. From there, they plan to continue all the way to Ottawa in support of Idle No More. Melissa Natachequan spoke with David Kawapit just before they left on their journey.
The Quest of Wisjinichu-Nishiyuu, Quest For Unity
4 Youth under the age of 20 with two guides wish to walk to Ottawa and arrive in Parliament Hill. This is a strong message to prove to other First Nations across Canada that the Cree Nation of Quebec are not sellouts, but keepers of the Language, Culture, Tradition and more importantly; today, we still carry the sacred laws of our ancestors.
