Under the Governance Agreement negotiated by Abel Bosum and signed in July 2012 with the Government of Québec, the Cree Nation Government may now exercise powers of land and resource planning and management over 70,000 square kilometers in the Eeyou Istchee James Bay territory. Further, the Cree Nation is now
an equal partner in a new Regional Government exercising municipal, land and resource jurisdiction over more than 275,000 square kilometers in the territory.
Abel Bosum led the effort to create the Cree Cultural Institute, or Aanischaauamikw, an extraordinary museum, cultural institution, and showcase of the history of the James Bay Cree. Its mission is to preserve and share the stories and legends, music, pictures, and physical objects that show the Cree people’s unique interaction with the land of Eeyou Istchee. In April of 2015, Abel Bosum was elected President of the Aanischaauamikw Cree Cultural Institute.
