The Micmac Indians who lived in what is now the Gaspe
Peninsula in southeastern Canada were a gathering-hunting-fishing
people whose lives were transformed by the advent of French traders and
missionaries beginning with the explorations of Jacques Cartier in
1534. A reconstructed 1675 Micmac village in the town of Gaspe
demonstrates subsistence activities in each of the four seasons of the
year using both traditional and introduced tools.
