Fort Albany First Nation


This settlement is located along the west coast of James Bay. Fort Albany is a Chippewa Treaty 9 settlement which has a population of 863 according to the 2001 census. In Anishinabe, the Chippewa's who lived in what is now the Fort Albany region were called Swamp or Swampy People. In Anishinabe it is Maskego Bemadisijjig. The shorter form of Maskego is more commonly used with Maskegowuk being normal. Long ago the whites commenced to calling the northern most Chippewa's the Cree which is a derogatory name. The Anishinabe word for woman is Kwe. Both the Plains and Woodland Cree, are extensions of these northern most Anishinabe people. Fort Albany is about 5 miles to the southwest of Kashechewan. Fort Albany has around 200 housing units. The average household size is about 4.5 persons per housing unit.
