The Band

Pjila'sioq, the Benoit Lnu'k/Mi'kmaw Community traces its history to the Chegau/Chego/Shegone family, to Francois Benoit and Anne L'Official, and to a number of other Lnu'k/Mi'kmaw families who are the ancestors to the Benoit family of Lnu'k/Mi'kmaw in Taqamkuk.

Lnu'k/Mi'kmaq have always had a prominent presence in St. George's Bay (Baie St-George) and on Payun Aqq Payunji'j (the Port au Port Peninsula). Many of our Lnu'k/Mi'kmaq ancestors came from around Pitu'pa'q (Bras d'Or lakes) in Nova Scotia and New Brunswick. We also have Beothuk connections.
