Government of Canada Supports Fisher River Cree Nation Band
On behalf of the Honourable James Moore, Minister of Canadian Heritage and Official Languages, James Bezan, Member of Parliament (Selkirk-Interlake), announced on July 27, 2010 funding for the Fisher River Cree Nation Band.
This funding will assist in the production of the exhibition "Fisher River Cree Nation Exhibition Project," which commemorates the 135th anniversary of the signing of the Norway House Treaty in 1875. The exhibition will include wall-mounted panels with photographs, maps, and texts; an exhibition case with artifacts; and a digitized community history. The exhibition text will be translated into Cree by local elders.
