Listuguj Indian reserve
Listuguj, one of the largest Mi’gmaq communities on the East Coast, is part of the Mi’gmaq Nation, and is located on the border of Quebec and New Brunswick. Situated directly across the Restigouche River from Campbellton, NB, Listuguj lies within the tribal district of Gespe’gewa’gi. It is one of three Mi’gmaq communities in Quebec and is a member of the Mi’gmawei Mawiomi Assembly.
Listuguj was not always situated at its present location. Many years ago, Listuguj, or Tigog as it was traditionally called, was located on the other side of the Restigouche River, at the bottom of Sugarloaf Mountain, where the town of Atholville is located today.
Listuguj operates under the Indian Act of Canada; federal legislation enacted by the parliament of Canada. It is governed by 1 Chief and 12 Councilors that are elected every two years by the Listuguj community members. Chief Allison Metallic is the current Chief and has been involved in Band politics for most of his adult life.
