Pimicikamak (pim ih chik uh mak) where a lake lies across the river, the land surrounding that place, the people that has inhabited that land since time immemorial, the nation comprised of that people inhabiting that land. Pimicikamak is a self-governing indigenous nation. Its origins pre-date European settlement of Canada. Pimicikamak became part of Canada by its representative, Te-pas-te-nam, signing Treaty 5 at a historic ceremony in Norway House in 1875.
The people of Pimicikamak effectively evicted Manitoba Hydro from the
Jenpeg Generation Station on Kichi Sipi (the Nelson River), in Pimicikamak
territory, approximately 525 kilometres by air north of Winnipeg.
