    Cree Culture
    Cree Canada - Western
    The Cree way of life today is the foundation for the people of Waskaganish. Cree traditions in our culture have gone through times of change, testing and have been brought back to life by means of applying our Cree values among the people. Today, traditions are kept alive with the tools and technology that are available to any Cree student, trapper or townsperson.

    Harry's Tamaracks
      Canada - Eastern
    Harry Whiskeychan, born in the bush 40 miles from Waskaganish on December 25, 1928. He was inspired by late John Blueboy in the art of tamarack making. In 1974, he made his very first tamarack decoy, "it wasn't much of a decoy," says Harry. After 24 years, he has become one of the finest artists in the art of tamarack making.

    Mistissini - Toboggan
    Cree Canada - Western
    To make toboggans, birch or tamarack is the kind of wood that's used. And it depends on the person who is making it, how long he wants to make his toboggan. He can make it long if he thinks he's going to use it to move his camp. But if he is only going out for several nights and will be alone, then he makes it short. And that's the one he uses too when he goes out hunting.
    This tree is also known as Eastern larch, American larch, takmahak, hackmatack, red larch, and black larch. It is usually medium to large-sized, with dark turquoise needles 3/4 of an inch to 1 inch long. It is the only deciduous coniferous tree in Ontario, which means that while it reproduces through cones - usually indicating a conifer - it loses its needles in the fall, a characteristic usually found only in deciduous trees, which lose their leaves.
