Jackson Osborne, a Cree elder and resident of Pimicikamak Cree Nation (Cross Lake), has been collecting traditional knowledge on and about the history of his nation’s traditional land for about thirty years. He has dedicated his life to documenting changes occurring in the natural environment, along Pimicikamak’s shorelines and its surrounding environments, through photos and videos. Recently Jackson has archived over three hundred photos that depict the status of the land before and after hydro development.
Jackson shared a few of his photos with Wa Ni Ska Tan’s most recent Newsletter publication, available online soon.
Thanks to Jackson Osborne for sharing his knowledge and photo journalism.
