The Micmac and Maliseet are the aboriginal peoples of the Maritime region of Canada. This website is an exploration of their culture through their stories and their language.
Below can be found links to five stories read in English, Micmac and Maliseet, along with transcriptions in all three tongues. We have also provided excerpts from a conversation with Imelda Perly about native culture, language and spirituality.
