The Grand Council of the Crees

Together We Stand Firm, Episode 1

In the early 1970s, ten young Cree leaders were asked by community elders to lead the fight during negotiations for the James Bay Northern Quebec Agreement. May their experiences serve to guide and inspire Cree youth and others in similar circumstances today. This is the first episode in what will be a four-part series (watch the second episode here). It covers the period of time from the first announcement of Bourassa's "Project of the Century" to the signing of the JBNQA.
