“Chisasibi” The Great River

Chisasibi, formerly the island community of Fort George, is situated on the eastern coast of James Bay. During a two-and-half year period at the end of 1978 to 1980, Chisasibi was relocated with its 2,000 inhabitants and about 200 houses to the mainland. Today, despite its size and location in comparison with most towns ‘down south’, Chisasibi has partaken in some of the major events in the region’s history.

Chisasibi, in comparison to most communities, is a relatively new community; however, guided by strong leadership and people, who have continually maintained our timeless foundations inherited from our past and present Elders. Similarly, much of this present philosophy and ideology is founded on our love of “Eeyou Istchee” - our Mother, and all that dwell thereon, and the beauty of nature.

We, the Eeyouch of Chisasibi continue to seek ways to preserve and strengthen our language, culture, education, traditions, beliefs and values. Likewise, we also understand that we live in a modern society; thus, we will strive to balance these realities, the new with the old, to ensure ourselves a positive future.

One teaching our Elders passed on is to make our guest feel welcomed. So in that spirit, we therefore welcome you. Come and visit Chisasibi - the home of the “Great River” people.
