Our spectacular scenery and natural resources in our territory have sustained our people and way of life for centuries through fishing, hunting, and gathering food. We are proud of our heritage and community values. We thrive on a communal lifestyle that respects the wisdom of our elders.
Through the might of our First Nation we continue to evolve in the planning and development of our rich natural resources that will benefit our people and enable the kind of capacity-building that will help to build a strong and self-sufficient Eabametoong First Nation.
