Mi’kmaq Hieroglyphic Prayers

  Author:   David Schmidt    
  Publisher:   Publishing Limited

Mi’kmaq Hieroglyphic Prayers is a collection of sacred readings (prayers, narratives, and liturgies) represented by hieroglyphs developed from pictographic symbols used by the Mi’kmaq Indians of Atlantic Canada before European contact, and later expanded by French missionaries. This volume contains some of the most important texts in native religious life, such as “The Passion of our Lord” and “The Sacraments,” as well as common prayers for everyday recitation. Transliterations in Mi’kmaq and translations in English accompany the hieroglyphic text.
