Oral tradition holds that the Mi'kmaq have continuously occupied the island since prehistoric times. There is the presence of Mi’kmaq hunting, fishing, and living here long before European settlement began. Today many people along the west coast of Newfoundland celebrate their Mi’kmaq ancestry. Join us as we celebrate and honour the traditions of the Mi’kmaq people of the island of Newfoundland.

How do you want to experience the Mi’kmaq Story?
