In our community live less than 5.000 people permanently, about 3.000 of these are members of the Elsipogtog First Nation living at Big Cove, the other 40% are spread out over 1.781 km² or  687 miles²,  that is almost exactly only one (1.04) residents per km², yet this is a real and vibrant community.  There are 29 villages and hamlets including Big Cove.

As time allows and submissions come in, we would like to introduce to you not only the villages in text and pictures but also some of the people that lived in them or still do so, because the people make the difference.
