Gespe’gewa’gi is the Mi’gmaq Nation District that extends from the Miramichi River to the tip of the Gaspé Peninsula, a land area that straddles the modern day Quebec/New Brunswick border. The First Nation is a strong advocate of Aboriginal peoples in Canada, and Aboriginal and treaty rights. Its main resource is the Atlantic salmon and other fruits of the waters and forests, including modern harvest of timber.
The community is located 45 kilometres west of Bonaventure, on the north shore of Cascapédia Bay. They are looking to build an independent, sustainable economic base respecting Micmac values and enhancing community livelihood and prosperity.
