Robert has accomplished much for the Cree Nation, with enough stories to fill many books. We honour his valuable knowledge, his sheer persistence, and his effective leadership that he continues to contribute to this day. Mr. Kanatewat’s accomplishments during his career are phenomenal and historic. He continues to work for Eeyouch present-day. He is tireless and always gives back to his people. We are so very proud of him.
On behalf of the Council of the Cree Nation of Chisasibi, we congratulate Robert on this well-deserved, once-in-a lifetime achievement. Without him, we simply would not be where we are today.”
