Six MicMac Stories

Six MicMac Stories Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Although these stories were collected in the 19th and 20th centuries, much was lost in translation through ignorance of the language or incorrect context. Here the retelling is how they might have been told by a Micmac: Drama, humor, surprises, and scares abound.

Synopsis:

Table of Contents

The boy who visited Muini'skw — Woodchuck and the two old women — The child from beneath the Earth — Ki'kwa'ju and ki'-kwa'jusi's — Kaqtukwasi's, son of the Thunders — Jenu.
