The great expedition of the sacred fire

The route of the Great Sacred Fire Expedition was made throughout the project and still today we are working on the maps for our G.P.S. devices.  The route was created with maps of the participants and their experiences in off-roading and long distance have greatly contributed to the creation of the 16 routes.  The nations are one in this adventure and the transmission of the sacred fire everywhere on the ancestral territory will bring us all together.  We, Atikamekw Nehirowisiw, are the guardians of the sacred fire of the East and we believe that it is time to rekindle the values that our ancestors have bequeathed to us in order to share it with all of you.  With the Innu, the Cree, the Anicinape, the Naskapi, the Inuit, the Mohawk and the Allochtones, we will travel more than 4,100 km in 18 days or more.  Here are the communities and villages we will visit in 2022.   Follow us here.
