A Brief History of Nemaska

Nemaskau Eenouch have a rich and remarkable heritage that defines their collective identity and specific worldview.

Life in the bush has characterised most of this history and has informed the community’s relationship with the land and with one another. The arrival of Europeans and the subsequent fur trade brought about changes in these relationships without disturbing their essence. Nevertheless, the second half of the 20th century initiated a marked interference from the part of governmental institutions into all aspects of community life. Children were taken away to residential schools and the community was disbanded and displaced to make way for a planned hydroelectric project. Throughout this adversity, Nemaskau eenouch have persevered. They have built a community and preserved their way of life.
