Mapping of Traditional Territories in the Cumberland House Region

The Cumberland House Cree Nation and the Metis people of Cumberland have received money from the federal government and have entered into an agreement with the provincial government to map traditional territories in the Cumberland House region.
Indian and Northern Affairs Canada (INAC) and the provincial government are ignoring their duty to consult with the John Cochrane people because they claim that we are not a recognized band.
