Micmac, Maliseet, Beothuk Collections in Great Britain (Curatorial Report #62)

Ruth Holmes Whitehead


This is the first in a series of curatorial reports on Micmac, Maliseet, and Beothuk material in international collections. It covers twenty museums in Great Britain. Approximately 154 Micmac items were recorded, to a surprisingly few 20 Maliseet pieces. The Beothuk collections totaled 11 pieces, which is less surprising, when one considers that the last known Beothuk died in 1829.
