About us...

ACCI flows from the knowledge that Cree culture must be captured, maintained, shared, celebrated, and practiced. Cree Elders have spoken of the need for a central place for the protection of the way, and have developed a vision for Aanischaaukamikw over several decades.

Building a Relationship with Switzerland's Nordamerika Native Museum


The first loan to Aanischaaukamikw from Europe was an 18th century Cree moccasin from the city of Zurich, Switzerland's Nordamerika Native Museum.

It was particularly important for the opening phase of our exhibition because it features fine porcupine quill work, a technique of decoration long ago replaced by beadwork and embroidery in this region.

It was also popular with visitors because the other moccasin of the pair had been located in a collection in Toronto (the Bata Shoe Museum) and the two had been brought together in our exhibition for the first time in many decades.

When it became time to return the Swiss moccasin this fall according to the original agreement, we requested that they extend the loan so that more people could see this quill work and our reproduction project could have the benefit of a such a masterwork as a model.

The Nordamerika Native Museum agreed and in their approval letter, asked if we could loan them a Cree artifact from our collection. We selected a pair of child's snowshoes donated to ACCI by the family of Reverend Canon Hugo Muller, who had worked in the southern James Bay Cree communities, including Waswanipi. These snowshoes, made in the 1960's, following an ancient pattern, and still made and used today represent one of the enduring inventions of northern peoples in North America, a essential tool for travel and for hunting and trapping in the north during the winter.

This loan exchange of "footwear" between Aanischaaukamikw and the Nordamerika Native Museum signals a new kind of co-operation, a chance for people in the northern region of Canada to see the exquisite historic handwork of their ancestors and a chance for visitors to Zurich to see an example of a highly specialized and utterly essential ongoing part of daily life on the traplines and in the forest camps of the James Bay Cree.


James Bay Cree Grand Chief, Matthew Coon Come, Cree Federal Government Member of Parliament, Romeo Saganash, Ouje-Bougoumou Chief Reggie Bosum and local and Quebec government ministers view the Swiss moccasin and its pair at the Museum opening.

"Snowshoe Walk" activities at Waswanipi, the Cree community from which the child's snowshoes to be loaned to Zurich originate.

    1. HOW EDWARD LOAN COMPANY GRANTED ME A BUSINESS LOAN!!!
      Hello everyone, I am Oliver Johnson Moore from Zurich Switzerland and want to use this medium to express gratitude to EDWARD JONES for fulfilling his promise by granting me a loan, i was stuck in a financial situation and needed to refinance and pay my bills as well as start up a Business. I tried seeking for loans from various loan firms both private and corporate organisations but never succeeded and most banks declined my credit request. But as God would have it, i was introduced by a friend named Lisa Rice to EDWARD JONES LOAN COMPANY and undergone the due process of obtaining a loan from the company, to my greatest surprise within 28hrs just like my friend Lisa, i was also granted a loan of $387,000.00; So my advise to everyone who desires a loan, "if you must contact any firm with reference to securing a loan online with low interest rate of 2% and better repayment plans/schedule, please contact EDWARD JONES LOAN COMPANY. Besides, he doesn't know that am doing this but due to the joy in me, i'm so happy and wish to let people know more about this great company whom truly give out loans, it is my prayer that GOD should bless them more as they put smiles on peoples faces.

    2. Testimony on how i got my LOAN from fundingloanplc@yahoo.com

      I'm Isabella Tyson from 1910 N Halsted St Unit 3, Chicago IL60614 USA,, i have been searching for a genuine loan company for the past few months and all i got was bunch of scams who made me to trust them and at the end of the day took my money without giving anything in return, all hope was lost i got confused and frustrated, i find it very difficult to feed my family and vowed never to have anything to do with loan companies on net and went to seek of assistance from a very good friend which i explained all my experience regarding online companies with and said he can help me that he knows of a Godsent and well known company called FUNDING CIRCLE PLC, he stated he just got a loan from them although i was still very unsure about this company due to my past experience but i decided to give it a try and did as i was directed by my friend and applied, i never believed but i tried and to my greatest surprise i received my loan in my bank account within 24 hours, i could not believe that i would stand on my feet financially again. I’m glad I took the risk and applied for the loan and today i'm thanking God that such loan companies still exist and promise to share the good news to people who are in need of financial assistance because the rate of scams on net is getting very serious and i don't want people to fall victim when we still have genuine and Godsent lenders.. You can contact this Godsent company using the information as stated and be a partaker of this great testimony.. Email: fundingloanplc@yahoo.com OR Call/Text +14067326622 thanks

  6. I did manage to photograph (however badly) the Ramadan decorations at Al Araimi Complex mall in Al Qurum while picking up my Eid abaya from the shop (and while my husband endlessly, and I mean endlessly, purused the oud/ incense dealers). http://coronetboats.fi/lainaohjeet/remonttilaina/
