THE END:) In what is now Nova Scotia, Prince Edward Island, a part of the Gaspé Peninsula and eastern New Brunswick, the Aboriginal people who greeted the first European visitors to their coasts were the Mi'kmaq (Micmac). Being a semi-nomadic tribe the Mi'kmaq people did not grow crops. Hunters, fishermen and gatherers the tribe ate moose, deer and small game such as rabbits The most common shelter used by the Mi’kmaq was the wigwam*. the structure is based on a pole frame, covered with birch bark or, more rarely, hides. Because of the effort required to harvest birchbark, the coverings were usually carried from location's. Clothing was made from the skins of mammals, birds and fish. The skins were tanned using animal brains, bird livers and oil, and by smoking. A long process of stretching and working the skins produced beautiful fur and leather. Micmac artists are famous for their porcupine quillwork. They were so skilled at this art. The Micmacs also did beadwork and basketweaving. Micmacs also crafted wampum out of white and purple shell beads. The designs and pictures on wampum belts often told a story or represented a person's family Art The Mi'kmaq made their canoes out of birch bark. These birch bark canoes were around 10 to 30 feet (3 to 9 m) in length. They were made higher on the sides so that water wouldn't get in if they went on the ocean. The Mi'kmaq entertained each other with story-telling. Stories often lasted several days, and included singing, dancing and feasting. Everyone smoked: their tobacco was made from red willow bark, bearberry leaves and a native tobacco plant. The dice game Waltes was a favourite game, and is still played today. There were contests of running, wrestling and shooting, plus various ball games. the Mi'kmaq believe there are other worlds that exist besides the earth. Imagine it this way: if you were to plant a tree, the roots would go into the earth, the trunk would spring up from the earth, the branches would reach the sky and then there would be the stars, moon and sun above. The tree is an example the Mi'kmaq use to describe how all the different worlds are connected to each other. The Mi'kmaq call these different worlds lodges. There are five lodges: Grand Council Flag of the Mi'kmaq Nation. Although the flag is meant to be displayed hanging vertically as shown here, it is quite commonly flown horizontally, with the star near the upper hoist.
