The Mi’gmaq of Northern New Brunswick and the Gaspé Peninsula have occupied their territory since time immemorial. Prior to Canada’s settlement by Europeans, they were these lands’ sole occupants. This book provides evidence for the Mi’gmaq’s ancient and continuous inhabitancy using two voices: that of the Mi’gmaq of the Gespe’gewa’gi, including the Elders, who act as narrators of the collective history, and that of the researchers, who studied all possible aspects of this history, including advanced investigation on place names as indicators of migration patterns.
