Mi’gmawe’l Tplu’taqnn means “Mi’gmaq People’s Laws” or “how we govern ourselves”. We are a non-profit organization whose members are the nine Mi’gmaq communities in New Brunswick.

 

Our Mission

Mi’gmawe’l Tplu’taqnn was formed in November 2015  to promote and support the recognition, affirmation, exercise and implementation of the inherent Aboriginal and Treaty Rights of its member First Nations, including the right of self-determination.  We are empowered by our member communities to advance their Aboriginal and Treaty rights through negotiations with our Treaty partners, and to deal with issues of consultation and accommodation on behalf of eight of our member communities.


Our relationship with the lands, waters and resources is the foundation of our identity.
— Chief George Ginnish
