Première Nation Wolastoqiyik Wahsipekuk

Welcome!

The Wolastoqiyik Wahsipekuk First Nation, formerly called the Maliseet of Viger First Nation, is the only Wolastoqiyik Nation in Quebec territory. Six other Wolastoqey Nations are in New Brunswick. After the loss of Viger's reserve lands in 1869, the community dispersed over the territories of Quebec, Canada and the United States. Today, the First Nation owns a small reserve land at Cacouna in Bas-Saint-Laurent and the members still constitute a diaspora living on the Québec territory and beyond. Several members of the Nation still go to Wolastokuk, ancestral territory, to practice traditional activities.
