These six Mi'kmaq stories are great tales, brilliantly retold by Ruth Whitehead. They have their roots firmly planted in the collective life of a people who had made Nova Scotia their home for centuries before the arrival of the Europeans. They offer us a rare and valuable insight into the powerful relationship between the Mi'kmaq and the often surprising world in which they lived.
