Maliseet, the People of the Beautiful River

In the 17th century, the nomadic was offered land by the colonists to cultivate in Viger, in the Lower St. Lawrence region. Preferring their freedom, they dispersed throughout Quebec. Not until 1987, after extensive research, did 130 Maliseets finally reunite to form a band council for their nation.
