Mic-mac Version of the Scriptures
Mic-Mac Version Of The Scriptures The Mic-Macs, or Souriquois of French writers, are a North American Indian tribe, inhabiting the peninsula of Nova Scotia, Prince Edward's Island, and the eastern portion of New Brunswick. A version of the Bible into that language is of recent origin. The gospels of Matthew and John were the first portions issued in 1854, by the British and Foreign Bible Society. In 1856 the book of Genesis and the gospel of Luke were also published, the translations being made by the Reverend S.T. Rand, who continued the work. Several portions of the Old Test., and the entire New Test. are at present published. The language has been treated by Maillard, Grammar of the Mic-Mac Language (1864). (B.P.).
