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.

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.
