Waswanipi hopes Cree youth will develop a sense of pride, understanding of their story

Oct 25, 2019

A walking trail taking shape in northern Quebec aims to connect people from Waswanipi — youth in particular — to the history of their community, and make them proud of where they come from.

The Weskitch Tibaajimuwin Meskinuu “Our Ancient History Trail” project will tell the community’s story through 26 large panels with Cree, French and English text. The idea came after the community called to widen the existing walking trail, and make it more secure for elders.

Archival photos will be placed along the 250-metre trail, which runs from a local women’s shelter to the culture camp near the Waswanipi River. It will include the stories of chiefs in the community from 1928 until today.
