Entities host event to keep Cree grads in Eeyou Istchee

The Grand Council of the Crees of Eeyou Istchee and Cree leaders are inviting all post-secondary students to a meeting in Ottawa in mid-March. It's called the Roundtable on Cree Capacity Building and organizers hope it will help Cree people better understand all the jobs available to them with the right education. Cree negotiator Abel Bosum says right now about half of the Crees who get a post-secondary education settle outside the territory and the Grand Council wants to change that. He spoke to Joshua Loon about the Roundtable.
