Micmac Crafts retail outlets are situated near the centre of the reserve in the local government office and also in the first Gas Bar you encounter while driving through the reserve. The 25 to 30 Micmac women of the Conne River Reserve who produce Micmac crafts, keep alive the traditions and skills of our crafts people.

Miawpukek Reserve is surrounded by a number of small communities in the Baie d'Espoir area. By road, it is 1.5 hours from the Trans-Canada Highway to the South Coast.

Miawpukek Reserve has a population of 750 people. It is the only Indian reserve in Newfoundland.

The craft shop is operated from Monday to Friday at the Government office and seven days a week at the gas bar.
