Plamu Fishery 2022

Plamu Fishery 2022

On May 24, 2022, Chief and Council passed a motion to start the Plamu Fishery on Friday, May 27, 2022 and end July 26, 2022 (St. Anne’s Day). Given our current reality with rising costs of living and food insecurity, the Plamu Fishery will help our families put traditional and nutritious food on their tables.

As Listugujewaq, living in line with our teachings and responsibilities is essential to who we are as a People. Chief and Council, through the Office of Chief and Council, have offered tobacco, and a ceremony will be held on May 27th, 2022 at the Listuguj Warf at 3:00 pm to honour our relationship with the Plamu and the Water Spirit.

It’s our protocol, to gift the first catch of the season to our Elders and those in need. Fishers looking for other ways to give back may also consider donating to the Listuguj Community Kitchen, the Migwite’tm Committee and the Listuguj Powwow Committee to help support upcoming community feasts.
