Abstract

This thesis is an analysis of the culture of the Montagnais-Naskapi Indians of the Labrador Peninsula in northeastern North America. The compound term "Montagnais-Naskapi" was proposed by Hallowell. "Montagnais" had previously been used to designate those bands living in the southern half of the Peninsula and "Naskapi" those in the north. The compound name was later employed for both groups because of their general culture and linguistic similarity.
