The Mi’kmaq Of Eastern Canada - Acknowledgements

We would like to acknowledge all the people who gave input and inspiration to help create the Mi’kmaw essay, and related interviews, videos and photographs. Some people have been quoted directly, but all have given generously of their knowledge. This has been the main source of information for this website essay. We hope we have done justice to their contributions.

Our thanks go to the Mi’kmaq Ethics Committee for allowing this project to be undertaken, as well as Gary Joseph and Kenny Prosper for their research and assistance in conducting interviews.  A special thank you to all the people who consented to be interviewed for this project.
