Who are the Pekuakamiulnuatsh ?

Given the size of the territory covered by the Pekuakamiulnuatsh and the possibilities of trade with other nations, over the centuries, groups and individuals from other nations have come and settled on our territories.  This means that we are no longer exclusively Innu, but also Cree, Abenaqui or Atikamekw, and obviously an Algonquin territory.  From this, came the necessity to give a specific name to the First Nations who used to and still do frequent the waterways touching the Pekuakami.  It was thus that the nation was identified: the Pekuakamiulnuatsh.

More specifically, the Pekuakamiulnuatsh are Innu who are found around Lac-Saint-Jean (Pekuakami) and its tributaries, and who frequent the territory contiguous with these watercourses.
