Ouje-Bougoumou

Two Cultures; One Extraordinary Landscape

90 minutes by air north of Montreal is an adventure travel destination you probably do not know: Eeyou Istchee Baie-James. The region is a vast wilderness of ancient rocks, immense rivers and boreal forests. The western boundary is defined by the eastern shore of James Bay. The region stretches 600 km (380 miles) in land. The southern boundary is the 49th parallel; the northern is the 55th parallel. About the size of Germany, this easily accessible Canadian wilderness is home to two distinct cultures:
  • Ndooheenou - the Cree of Eastern James Bay
  • Jamesians - the predominantly French-speaking non-aboriginal residents

Ouje-Bougoumou, a modern planned community with a long history

In the traditional homeland of the Eastern James Bay Cree is the modern-planned community of Ouje-Bougoumou. Built in 1992, it is located on the northeast shore of Lake Opemiska, about 30 minutes from the Chibougamau airport. Douglas Cardinal, the aboriginal architect that designed the American Indian Museum in Washington, DC and the Canadian Museum of Civilization in Ottawa, designed Ouje-Bougoumou. The Cree community has been recognized for its contemporary design, economic sustainability and environmental conservation, a hallmark of Cree culture. A weekend getaway to Ouje-Bougoumou is a contrast between 4,000 year old Cree traditions and their contemporary lifestyle. Ask how you can add a festival to your weekend getaway. Canoe, hike, and dine while you escape like never before.
