Eeyou Istchee – Baie James : vers un capital environnemental mixte ?

Abstract : James Bay (Eeyou Istchee) is a subarctic territory located in the province of Quebec. The region is subject to different types of environmental investment. They have been seen as the result of the power relationship between the government of Quebec – and its vision of environmental values – and the local Indigenous people – the Crees (Eeyouch). Because of Cree activism, the hegemony of the Western capitalistic system of values has gradually integrated a few indigenous investments within the development of the region. This paper aims to determine if the environmental capital construction genuinely challenges the resourcist approach to nature – mixing Western and Cree ontologies – or is simply a socially and morally more acceptable new form of capitalism.
