    The Atikamekw

    Around 1650, there were 500 to 600 Atikamekw. They occupied an area crisscrossed by navigable rivers and located at the crossroads of Cree, Algonquin and Montagnais communities, a situation that favoured barter. The Atikamekw supplemented their diet of game and fish by acquiring agricultural products such as corn. In spring, the Atikamekw would boil maple sap to make sugar and syrup; they are at the origin of the history of maple syrup in Quebec.
