Punamu’kwati’jk: Salmon Place

From “Encounters with tall sails and tall tales: Mi’kmaq society, 1500-1760”

No mention of Punamu’kwati’jk here (sometimes spelled Ponamogoatitjg, pronounced “Boon-a-mog-waddy”, Dartmouth), but many interesting details on the Mi’kmaq settlements of Sipekne’katik (later Halifax and Hants counties), as well as the first census of K’jipuktuk (Chibouctou – Halifax), conducted in 1687.

One man, one woman, one male child – 7 Mi’kmaq men, 7 Mi’kmaq women, and 19 Mi’kmaq children, 36 souls in total.
One house, 7 Mi’kmaq cabins, 3 guns, one-half acre of improved land.

(The author is undoubtedly de Gargas, who goes into considerable detail, naming 49 places, giving a list of each town and village in Acadie, and under more minute headings than the Census of Meulles. Seven folio leaves from 1685-1686, written on both sides)
