Micmac Nation

The Mi’kmaq (also spelled Micmac, or Mi’gmaq) are a First Nations people indigenous to the Atlantic coast of Canada and the northeastern United States. The Mi’kmaq are one of the largest indigenous tribe in North America, with a population of over 150,000.

The Mi’kmaq have a long and rich history that dates back thousands of years. The Mi’kmaq have lived in the region since before the arrival of Europeans and have a deep connection to the land and sea.

The Mi’kmaq were a semi-nomadic people, travelling in small groups throughout the region in search of food and resources. They relied heavily on the resources of the sea, such as fish, seals, and whales.

They also hunted caribou, moose, and other game. The Mi’kmaq were also skilled farmers, growing corn, beans, and squash.

The Mi’kmaq were known for their art and craftsmanship. They crafted tools, weapons, and clothing from the materials available to them in the region. They were also skilled in basket-weaving and beadwork.

The Mi’kmaq have a long history of trading with other First Nations and Europeans. They traded furs and other resources for goods such as blankets, guns, and metal tools.

The Mi’kmaq were greatly impacted by the arrival of Europeans in the region. They suffered from diseases brought by the Europeans, as well as displacement and disruption of their traditional way of life. Despite these challenges, the Mi’kmaq have persevered and continue to maintain their culture and traditions.
