MEMBER COMMUNITIES

 
 
 

carteAlthough the Mi’gmaq of Gesgapegiag, the Mi’gmaq of Gespeg, and the Maliseet of Viger share the waters along the estuary and Gulf of St. Lawrence, these communities distinguish themselves from each other due to their geographical location, their socio-economic situation, their cultural singularity and their language.

Mi’gmaqs of Gesgapegiag

The Mi'gmaq people have occupied the Mi'gma'gi territory, including the Maritimes  and the Gaspe Peninsula for thousands of years. Traditionally, the Mi'gmaq lived a semi-nomadic lifestyle, depending mainly on fishing during the summer and game meat during the winter.

Maliseets of Viger

Maliseet people, calling themselves Wolastogiyik, which means "people of the beautiful river", originate from the valleys of the St. John River and its tributaries, located at the border separating the current provinces of Quebec and New Brunswick, and also the state of Maine in the United States.
