In September 2002 Tshikapisk hosted a group of Environment Canada scientists and elderly Innu advisers at the Kamestastin facilities. The group arrived in a float equipped turbo otter aircraft but later brought in a helicopter to allow them greater flexibility and better access during their stay.In the course of a week they gathered baseline scientific data, collected vegetation and water samples, and the Innu members of the group acted as ecological interpreters to the Environment Canada scientists. Joe Pomeroy and Dave Wilson represented Environment Canada. They were assisted and advised by Shuashim Nui, Ispastien Pastitshish, Ispastien Penunsi and Antuan Penashue.
