This chapter explores the efforts of both the French and British in refusing the indigenous Mi’kmaq from migrating to the Newfoundland between 1763 and 1766. It is particularly concerned with activities and procedures of the British Royal Navy in Newfoundland that reflect the Navy’s role as a projector of British power and an agent in the process that forced the Mi’kmaq to abandon their attempts and instead settle on the remote western Newfoundland. It begins by placing the migration into context, the explores the events of 1763-1766 in more detail; before concluding that the Mi’kmaq were thwarted in their efforts to pursue their priorities by the constant imperial friction between the English and the French.

Keywords:   British Naval History, Mi’kmaq, First Nations, Indigenous Canadians, British Imperialism
