Athapuscow Cree Territory: Northeast Alberta.

The Athapuscow Cree were severely decimated by the smallpox epidemic of 1781. Nevertheless, they survived. In the years that followed, Cree flooded in from the east and merged with the survivors. So great were the numbers of these newcomers that a new identity was formed, "Bush Cree".
