LANGUAGE

The Mi’kmaq have their own aboriginal language. Nowadays about one third of the Mi’kmaq population is still able to speak it. In ancient times they even had a hieroglyph alphabet, but nowadays it is written in Latin letters. The Mi’kmaq think of their language as being given by their creator-god and because of that it is seen as holy. The translation of the word Mi’kmaq is “allies” and refers to their countless treaties with other tribes and later with the French and the British.
