Come and enjoy a Mi’gmaq experience in Gaspé. Located on a headland on the north side of Gaspé Bay, at the foot of the mountain and near the forest, the Micmac Interpretation Site of Gespeg will introduce you to the Mi’gmaq Nation from yesterday to today. Learn about the Mi’gmaq occupation of the territory of Gaspésie as well as the history and culture of this people.

Explore the Mi’gmaq world in the interpretation centre and gift shop as well as in the faithful reconstruction of a 17th-century traditional village and summer camp.

Enjoy a unique experience on Mi’gmaq lands with interpreter guides and artisans who are members of the Mi’gmaq Nation.

This is a golden opportunity to gain a greater appreciation for our traditional skills and our contributions to the Gaspé community.
