Prince Edward Island Canada Paul Schuchert Grade 5-Miss Wardell February 7 1998 Prince Edward Island Prince Edward Island lies in the Gulf of St Lawrence and is separated from New Brunswick and Nova Scotia by the Strait of Northumberland It once was connected to the mainland I chose to do this province because I love lobster and the land is really beautiful About 11000 years ago the early people known as the Paleo-Indians lived on what is now Prince Edward Island They gathered berries in the islands forests and hunted seals and walrus with spears along the coast They also tracked caribou and arctic foxes They left the area when hunting got hard The Maritime Archaic Indians moved there about 6000 years ago They also hunted and fished They made tools and animal figures carved out of stone and bones I read that a 6500-year-old ulu a kind of knife used to butcher walrus and whales was found a few years ago in the Gulf of St Lawrence The Micmac Indians who were related to the Maritime Archaic Indians settled almost 2500 years ago By this time the water had separated the island from the mainland They called the island Abegweit meaning home cradled on the waves They built grass houses called wigwams The Indians covered their shelters with furs for the cold winters Several thousand Micmac were living on the Island when the first Europeans arrived The Europeans discovered the island when Jacques Cartier landed there in 1534 He described it as the most beautiful stretch of land imaginable There are stories of ghosts and buried pirate gold date back to the days when sailing ships linked the island with Nova Scotia and schooners picked up cargo for the West Indies
