Alive with Nature

The naskapi

The Naskapi

Northeast America


The whole world is filled with soul or Mantu; reality included the physical world as well as the spirits which inhabited it. The way the Naskapi contacted the spirits was via the Mista'peo, the Great Man. "The Great Man is the active, living soul of each person."


The shaman

A shaman was someone who knew how to control souls.

The Universe

  • The Universe for the Naskapi is explained in their myths. The trickster appears in the stories. Everyone's soul when it leaves the body resides in the stars; this is their concept of reincarnation. Knowing how to live with souls is fundamental to survival.

The hunt

Animals give themselves to hunters and the hunters must express their thanks to the animals by "respecting their carcasses and using them in the most economical way." Through dreams the hunter learns where the animals are and how to hunt them.
