West of the huge facilities of the La Grande complex, Chisasibi ("big river") is the last community accessible by road. Until 1981, this Cree community was located on Fort George Island (formerly Governor’s Island). Fort George was the site of a Hudson's Bay Company trading post built in 1837 by George Atkinson, a Scottish Métis who gave his name to the island. Fort George Island is a well known meeting place and a centre for festivities. Each summer, it hosts a major pow-wow that draws people from all over.
