Oujé-Bougoumou (''the place where people gather'') is situated on the shore of Lake Opemisca. The names of Oujé-Bougoumou and Chibougamau share the same origin. Dispersed in neighbouring towns, communities and the forest, the band members reunited in 1992 to form the newest Cree community. Designed by architect Douglas Cardinal (Museum of Civilization, Hull) and combining modernity and tradition with an environmental outlook, it has won recognition and several United Nations awards.
