Kluskap's People: Stories of the Mi'kmaq was originally broadcast on Ideas on CBC Radio One.


The six bilingual legends included here are dramatizations selected from the many traditional Mi'kmaq stories that would have been shared during family gatherings and activities. They were recorded entirely in the Cape Breton community of Eskasoni during June 2006, but all are based on traditional Mi'kmaq cultural beliefs that have evolved over thousands of years.

All songs, chants, drums, flute and rattle by Joel Denny, Kathy Denny and Beverly Jeddore.
