We share an interest in the rich historical and cultural heritage of Moose Factory, Moosonee and the Moose River region. That historical and cultural heritage is primarily Omushkego, but includes major contributions from other peoples, contributions that have become part of the present‐day community’s political, social, religious, economic and cultural fabric, in the course of its long evolution that predates Moose Factory’s establishment as a fur‐trade post in 1673. As demonstrated by our communities’ additional Eeyou, Orcadian, Scottish, English, Norwegian and French heritage, hospitality has long been one of the most important aspects of Moose Cree and Omushkego culture.
