Episode no. 44 October 2018
Let's discover the cree community of Waskaganish, its residents, its memorable buildings and its cultural sites. That's what our adventurers did with their new friend Tim Whiskeychan, the tourism officer of the community. They also got the chance to face the incontested strength of the Rupert River by visiting the cultural site of Smokey Hill where they lived a momerable moment!
The communal kitchen I think it was the biggest demonstration of community that I experienced in this trip.

The community whose original name was Fort Charles, was founded in 1668. It was shortly thereafter re-named Rupert's House. In fact, this community owes its name to the fur trade, as Waskaganish is the cree word meaning “Little House“. Nature and photography enthusiasts will find an abundance of subjects, such as the famous sunset over the James Bay.
