Atikamekw Culture and History

Les Attikameks (French version)

As a complement to our Atikamekw language information, we would like to share our collection of indexed links about the Atikamekw people and various aspects of their society. The emphasis of these pages is on American Indians as a living people with a present and a future as well as a past. Atikamekw history is interesting and important, but the Atikameks are still here today, too, and we try to feature modern writers as well as traditional folklore, contemporary art as well as museum pieces, and the issues and struggles of today as well as the tragedies of yesterday. Suggestions for new links are always welcome.
