    Innu Nation - Mamit Innuat
    Innu Canada - Eastern
    Approximately 16,000 Innu (formerly known as Montagnais or Naskapi) inhabit Nitassinan (eastern Quebec and Labrador). They are based in 13 different communities - Utshimassit, Sheshatshiu, Pakuashipi, La Romaine, Natashquan, Mingan, Uashat, Maliotenam, Betsiamites, Les Escoumins, Mashteuiatsh, Schefferville, and Kawawachikamach. The political realities of two provincial boundaries and the land rights negotiation process have led to the creation of regional political organizations which collectively represent the Innu people of Nitassinan.

    In his 1953 publication, I Live in the Woods," Paul Provencher described this housing structure as "a type of shelter used particulary by the Montagnais Indians when they intend staying in one place for any length of time. Sometimes it is built for winter quarters"
