Cree Nation Tourism Map of Wemindji, Quebec, Canada

Cree Nation of Wemindji

Wemindji, from wiimin uchii meaning "red ochre mountain" in Cree formerly known as Old Factory, a little island 25 kilometres south of the current location. Wemindji has been relocated since 1958 and sits at the mouth of the Maquatua River on the east coast of James Bay, in northern Quebec, Canada. Wemindji’s nearest major city is Montreal and we are approximately 1400 kilometres north of it. Old Factory Band was first established in 1951 on an Island of Paakumshumwashtikw meaning "Old Factory Bay" now known as the Cree Nation of Wemindji.

Members of the Cree Nation of Wemindji were referred to the services of mapformation by Big Rush Media in the Spring of 2011, inquiring about our 3D perspective tourism map design services. After brief negotiations, the Cree Nation decided to hire our firm to develop a new map of their community. Finished artwork was delivered in September 2011.
