Sample text

A handful from inland groups worked in the mines of Chapais and Chibougamau and lived in those towns. Another small number, whose hunting territories included the site of Chibougamau, lived within the town boundaries or at a settlement nearby on Dore Lake, in preference to living at the Cree village of Mistassini fifty-six miles away. Some Cree from Mistassini, Nemiscau, and Waswanipi bands might be seen frequently in the towns of Matagami, Chapais, or Chibougamau shopping, looking for employment, or refreshing themselves at the hotel.

These three large villages also housed numbers of whites, employed for the most part by the government, the churches, or the HBC, to operate the services of the villages or the radar base at Great Whale. There were in addition three smaller coastal Cree villages Rupert's House, with a population of 850, Eastmain with 270, and Paint Hills with 550. Waswanipi band members numbering 650 had no villages of their own, but lived inland in several small settlements - Desmaraisville, Miquelon, Matagami, Waswanipi River - none of which was on Reserve land, but all of which were accessible by road.

Work for the HBC, transporting supplies from Ruperts House by canoe, had been the summer employment of many until 1927. Between then and the 1960s a smaller canoe brigade linked inland posts and the railroad. In 1971 unloading the barges that brought supplies from Moosonee to the HBC store in coastal settlements still provided a regular source of casual employment. But other activities were also common. Camps for fishermen, duck hunters, and big game hunters had been set up by outfitters, or by the provincial Ministry of Tourism, Fish, and Game, particularly near Lake Mistassini and on the coast near Rupert's House.
