Benoit First Nation

- We are a Traditional first nation whose inherent rights supercedes the rights of all others.
- Membership has its privileges.
- When accepted by our Benoit First Nation band council we will issue a band card that signifies that you are a member of our nation.
- Prior to Sept 2011 no Mi'kmaq in Newfoundland has Indian Status, except for those who were registered in 1984 along with the Conne River Mi'kmaq.
