"At least four times - in 1670, 1870, 1898, and 1912 - Eeyou Astchee, our traditional lands and
waters, have changed status, purportedly, transferred between kings as gifts, or deeded between
colonial companies and governments, all without our knowledge, and certainly without our
consent. It has always been assumed that we the James Bay Crees, the actual owners and
occupants, simply passed with the land, without voice, without the right to determine or even
know what was being done with us."
From Sovereign Injustice
by the Grand Council of the Crees
