Volume 3 of the Canadian Ethnography series emphasizes the role of religion as it pertains to constructing Mi’kmaw identity, primarily because religious and spiritual views help shape subjectivity and the social environment. Within Mi’kmaw society and culture, specific religious orientations and respective ideologies and expressions both shape and are shaped by personal and social identities. The reciprocal nature of this relationship between religious affiliation(s) and individual and collective identities is evident in the varied perceptions of culture, spirituality and religion found within the Mi’kmaw society.
