Add to the Archives

The Mi’kmaw Archives team would like to invite authors who have produced about the Mi’kmaw peoples to continue to submit any of their work they wish to have included in the archives. For Mi’kmaw authors we invite submissions of any written, audio or video materials you have produced. For non-Mi’kmaw authors, we welcome any materials in the same format you have produced regarding the Mi’kmaw peoples. Please follow the instructions on this webpage and its files, fill out the submission form (PDF) and contact the publisher, if appropriate, for permissions using the template letter we have provided, and submit all the files to Marie Battiste at

On behalf of the Mi’kmaw Archives team, wela’lin—thank you.

Permission Request

We have created a form letter to assist you (DOC) in requesting permission from the publisher where you have published your work. Please fill out or delete the information listed in square (“[ ]”) brackets as needed to complete the form letter. Save any changes you make to the form letter and either email (by attaching document to or pasting text into) or print off and mail to the publisher. (Email and postal addresses for publishers are available on their website.)

NOTE: some publishers have web or online forms in which you need to fill in the information requested and submit your request that way.

When submitting your work to the Mi’kmaw Archives you will need to include proof that permission to post it on the website has been granted.

Thank you,
The Mi’kmaw Archives team
