Traditional Craft Making:

Penwa Mawi-Amskwesewey L'nue'kati - Benoit First Nation

The Mi'kmaq were, and are, creative craftspeople. Traditional everyday use items are now considered unique art. Birch bark canoes, beaded clothing and woven baskets are celebrated traditional handicrafts. The Mi'kmaq were especially well known for the unique craft of porcupine quillwork.

Traditional Mi'kmaw creations

The Mi'kmaq used the materials that were around them: animal bones, claws, shells, quills, hair, feathers, leather, clay, roots and bark.

Penwa' Mawi-Amskwesewey L'nue'kati (Benoit First Nation) is pronounced Ben-wah um-skoo wess-so-whey ul-noo-eh-gut-dee
