Mi'kmaq

From Academic Kids

The Mi'kmaq (also Míkmaq, Micmac, Migmaw; in Quebec, Mi'gmaq) are a Canadian First Nations people indigenous to northeastern New England, Canada's Maritimes, and the Gasp Peninsula of the province of Quebec. They have a population of about 20,000 of whom approximately one-third still speak the Algonquian Mi'kmaq language, which was once written in Mi'kmaq hieroglyphic writing.

In the Canadian province of Nova Scotia, October is deemed Mi'kmaq History Month.
