The Forefathers Of The Split Lake Cree
were hunters and gatherers who
lived off the rich resources of the
lands and waters.
Their way of life
centred around the lakes and rivers
where wildlife and plant resources
could be harvested.
The Cree were a water people.
Living along the shores of the lakes
and rivers, they hunted and fished,
and gathered herbs and berries
along the shoreline.
