The Innu are a First Nations people in eastern Québec; their roots on the North Shore go back over 9,000 years. In the heart of Les Escoumins, the small Innu community of Essipit (“river of shells” in the Innu language) is part of the large Algonquin family. The village respects the land and its resources, and stresses the value of sharing, as taught to them by their ancestors. Essipit charms visitors with its cozy cottages and condos and its two campgrounds on the shores of the St. Lawrence. The small community store is filled with souvenirs that help visitors learn about its culture, such as traditional crafts and local products. Outdoor activities include whale-watching trips, black bear observation, sea kayaking and hunting and fishing at local outfitter camps. For information, stop in at 46 rue de la Réserve or call 1-888-868-6666. “Kuei!” from Essipit.
