Week 8

Extra Territorial

My first map shows the close up of all the Mi’kmaq tribes and where they live. Many don’t know that not only are they in parts of Quebec and Nova Scotia but also in the state of Maine and parts of Newfoundland. The article provides little information about the map and or tribe.

My second map shows a farther away view and includes the many different tribes of Canada including the Mi’kmaq. The article for the map briefly describes some Native history and states that “there are over 1,000,000 Canadians who claim some native ancestry; over 400,000 have official Indian status”. The map also has color coated which “cultural groups” they are in such as subarctic, plains, and plateau.
