6 elements of Culture


  • History is about what happened to people or objects in the past that might have changed the future.

  • The History in Metepenagiag First Nation Reserve Goes back about 3000 years ago. When the Natives Hunted and Fished to survive. There would make spears, arrows and arrow heads.



  • One of the great leaders of Metepenagaig Noah Augustine was the Chief of Metepenagiag for 6 years.

    He was lost to Freeman Ward in the election in April 2010.

    He Passed away November 13 2010

    More history? The Augustine Mound was found in 1972.

    It was dug up in 1975

    The founder was Joe Mike Augustine my Great Grandfather.



  • Economy is the people who have jobs and make money of them. Economy is how people make a living.

  • There is not much economy in Metepenagiag only economy is Clouds and Fishing. So what I am saying is that Metepenagiagdoes not have much economy.



  • Clouds is has the largest economy in Metepenagiag.

  • Most of the native people of Metepenagaig go to clouds to get gas food and drinks.

  • Fishing is one of Metepenagiag favorite things to do.

  • The people will go out fishing to some times make money, to get food or just to have fun.



  • Government is the people that are in charge of the people. An example is the prime minister or governor of Canada. The Government in Metepenagiag is different than Canada because instead of a prime minister we have a chief and council.



  • The Office is where the council and the chief Freeman ward do their meetings.

  • They discuss land claim housing etc.

  • Their last election was April 2010 where Freeman Ward beat out Noah Augustine was the chief for 6 years running.

  • The next election is April 2012.
