Wachiya and welcome to our website! We are
Cree students who graduated from Badabin
Eeyou School. Whapmagoostui is located at the
mouth of the Great Whale River, on the Hudson
Bay, north of the 55th parallel in Quebec,
Canada. We are over 700 crees living side by
side with around 500 inuits and 150
non-aboriginals.That's why our village is also
called Kuujjuarapik, Poste de la Baleine and
Great Whale River. This cohabitation is unique
in the Nunavik. The WAF was an art studio and a
coop, we did ceramic and pottery. We had a kiln
and electric wheels. We designed dish sets,
ceramic plaques, clocks, traditional figurines,
tea pots,  sacred pipes and ceramic murals. We
also had a division called the Circus Factory.
In 1999, the project came first at the Concours
des Prix Essor and in 2002 it was awarded The
First Nations Business Association Prize. We
were among the first who used a shopping
portal on the Internet.  We invite you to visit our
website, enjoy!
