Eyou Dipajimoon (Cree)

Margaret Fireman has been involved in saving the past for the people of Chisasibi for many years. She is now retired but still does some things to help in promoting culture, language and heritage. She talked with us about Fort George, her real home and where she was born, and Upichiwin; where the first Hydro Quebec Power Station and Dam is situated. In the past, the Cree used to fish, and preserve fish for their Fall Journeys to the their trap lines, Margaret shared with us that history.
