The Conseil de la Nation Atikamekw (CNA) (French for "Council of the Atikamekw Nation"), officially named Atikamekw Sipi - Conseil de la Nation Atikamekw, is a tribal council in Quebec, Canada. It is composed of the three Atikamekw bands: Manawan, Opitciwan and Wemotaci. Together, the three bands have a total registered population of 7,747 members in 2016.[1][2][3] It is headquartered in La Tuque, Quebec.[4] The role of the CNA is to officially represent all Atikamekw Nehirowisiw.[5] In September 2014, the CNA declared its sovereignty on its ancestral territory, the Nitaskinan, covering approximately 80,000 km2.[6][7]
