Resource – Mi’kmaq manuscript online

Posted on Updated on

The Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library is pleased to announce that we have acquired and digitized a rare 19th century Mi’kmaq (Micmac) liturgical manuscript. The prayers are written chiefly in hieroglyphic script, with a few lines including interlinear transliteration in Latin script. Full resolution JPEG images of this extraordinary document are available from Beinecke’s digital library. Images are openly and freely accessible:
A record for this manuscript can be found in Yale’s online library catalog, Orbis:
We are excited to offer this new resource for the study of Mi’kmaq language and culture.
