This book seeks to explore historical changes in the lifeworld of the Mi’kmaq Indians of Eastern Canada. The Mi’kmaq culture hero Kluskap serves as a key persona in discussing issues such as traditions, changing conceptions of land, and human-environmental relations. This study discusses the eco-cosmology that has been formulated by modern reserve inhabitants and that could be labeled a ‘sacred ecology’.
