Thanks to the hard work of our employees and the collaboration of our many partners, we have successfully implemented many different programs, ranging from the training of Crees for skilled jobs with Hydro-Quebec (over 50 Crees now occupy permanent positions), the rejuvenation of Cree community and family fisheries, the support of numerous cultural activities including summer gatherings and the enhancement of goose hunting facilities. This is not to mention the hundreds of kilometres of snowmobile and ATV trails already built throughout Eeyou Istchee.
On its 20th anniversary, Niskamoon Corporation salutes The Nation magazine and wishes it many more years of success and positive change.
Blackstone returns for sophomore season
Premiering Wednesday, January 11, the second season of the award-winning television series Blackstone will be continuing where it left off with last season’s cliff-hanger finale on APTN.
The series, which follows the fictitious Blackstone First Nation, is ground breaking because it is told from the First Nations point of view. The issues the show explores take viewers to a dark place, but that realism underscores its messages of hope and reconciliation.
Producer Ron E. Scott has assembled a cast of some of the best talent in the Native community to continue with this groundbreaking series. It’s no wonder that Blackstone has become one of the most popular shows on APTN and is gaining popularity around the world as far away as New Zealand.
The series airs at 9 pm every Wednesday with a rerun the following Sunday at 11:30 pm.
