"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."
