Formerly known as Paint Hills the small Cree community is located offf James Bay at the mouth of the Maquatua River in Quebec. The Cree people moved to the current site, along the river, in the summer of 1959, from their old location near a trading post on an island called "Viex-Comptoir" (French) otherwise known as "Old Factory" in English. This new community was named Wemindji.
