The Wemindji Sound Archive is the culmination of a project to find and store music recordings and films from the region. The Archive is available for visitors to enjoy at a playing station on the premises.
Then we made our way to Eastmain. In Eastmain we met with Deputy-Chief Johnny Tomatuk, who talked about Cultral Coordinator, Jamie Moses', project to collect, scan and reprint photographs from community members for display in the Cree Nation of Eastmain Administration Building. (We will talk to Jamie about his project when he returns to the office). We walked around the building and enjoyed looking at the results of the project - wonderful images capturing personal moments or aerial views of the community overtime that are safe for use in the office setting as they are non-original, scanned copies that have been hard-board mounted. This means that the original photographs will not be subjected to the harsh lights of an office setting, nor the knocks and spills of this busy space.
