Note from En Camino:
Attiwapiskat is a James Bay Cree community, neighbouring Fort Albany. The James Bay Cree have seen their lands used in hydroelectric megaprojects and mines, including a De Beers diamond mining project most recently. Unfortunately, the communities have not been the main beneficiaries of the resources from their lands, and indeed, they have suffered poverty, neglect, and worse. The most famous case in recent years has been Kashechewan, a community evacuated because of contaminated water (a problem that prevails in many reserves).
