Over three-quarters of a century, six colonial wars were waged in Mi'kma'ki/ Acadia before Peace and Friendship Treaties were signed at the end of the "French and Indian War" (1754-1763). During this prolonged period of conflict, the Wabanaki Confederacy (including the Mi’kmaq people), some Acadians and the French resisted the British Empire’s attempts to establish control over this region. Much of the armed resistance happened to defend the border of Acadia that is now in present-day Maine. This presentation will give an overview of the warfare conducted in this region.
