The Micmac Rights Association is an organization which advocates for the inherent and sovereign rights of the Micmacs people. We support the self-organization and self-regulation of the Micmac economy on a sovereign basis in accordance with Micmac custom and convention. We uphold and defend Micmac people exercising their inherent rights to economic self-determination and oppose the colonial system imposed by Canada’s racist Indian Act.
Note: We are using the older spelling of Micmac rather than the more recently introduced Mi’kmaq spelling in accordance with a request from former National Chief for the Atlantic Region and Putus Hector Pictou, who explained that it was only after the Marshall decision, that the term Micmac became spelled as Mi’kmaq. According to Putus, “The term Micmac is ours. It didn’t come from a court transcript, it’s our every day way to spell our identity, and it is the name on the treaties that were signed with our sovereign ancestors.”
